Hi, I'm joshua stein, the proprietor of Pushover. 10 years ago this week, I officially launched the Pushover app on the Apple App Store and Google Play (back then called Android Market) and since then, support for Pushover's API has been integrated into countless services, products, open-source libraries, and one-off shell scripts and tools. To date, Pushover has delivered over 3 billion notifications to over 3/4 of a million users.

Today I'm happy to announce the release of Pushover 3.7 for Android, iPhone/iPad, and Desktop with custom sound support! While Pushover has long included 21 different sounds that can be selected per-message through our API, a common feature request was the ability to play custom notification sounds stored on a user's device.

A new version of our iPhone/iPad app is available today that adds support for Apple's Critial Alerts. Added in iOS 12, Critical Alerts are special notifications that can bypass the device's mute switch and Do Not Disturb settings to generate audible alerts in emergency situations. This functionality is only available to applications that have applied to and been approved by Apple.

Today we're releasing new versions of our Android, iOS, and Desktop apps with a quick Do Not Disturb button. When pressed, you can quickly choose a time period in minutes, hours, or days, and all notifications for your devices will be silenced during that period. Once the time period is up, your notifications will resume automatically.

Pushover 3.4 has been released today for iPhone and iPad, Android, and Desktop, and brings full support for animated GIFs and monospace text support. Many Pushover users rely on our e-mail gateway to receive Pushover notifications from e-mails sent out by devices that don't directly support Pushover, such as security cameras.

Pushover has been available as a GitHub Service since 2002, making it easy to get Pushover notifications each time commits were pushed to your repositories. GitHub has recently announced that they are replacing GitHub Services with webhooks, which means the Pushover support in GitHub will be going away in January 2019. Any repositories that you are receiving Pushover notifications from will need to be updated to use Pushover’s new GitHub webhook.
