+ define notifications with custom titles and messages

+ run shortcuts or custom URLs directly from notification actions
+ assign configurable notification sounds
+ trigger your notifications through a secure web API - exactly when you want them
+ deliver notifications to all your devices
+ use a JSON API for dynamic texts, shortcut inputs, and URLs
Certain features require additional setup not provided by Pushcut, like the Shortcuts app or an automation server or service.
Each notification receives a unique and secret URL for the https://api.pushcut.io/ service. Trigger them by sending a HTTP POST to the URL - from virtually anywhere that is connected to the internet. This can be your home automation server, your notebook, or a web-based automation service.
Many services (like IFTTT or Zapier) have webhook actities that can send HTTP POST requests.
Use the powerful JSON API to fully customize you notifications with dynamic content and actions.

Ratings and Reviews
Great for only single actions!
I know a developer should have limitations when it comes to needing money, but it does everything that I need when it comes to making basic notifications. Only suggestion that I have is that there should be in is a help section. At first, I didn’t know how to push the notification out, but I know how to now from using your site. Please be sure to include a help section for those who don’t know how to instead of either writing a bad review or doing one extra step and have to go to your site to do so. Great app though! Very convenient now so I can automatically backup shortcuts everyday :)
Developer Response ,
thanks for the feedback! I will be sure to include something in the app directly to make this bit clearer. I also plan to add direct IFTTT and Zapier integrations which should make this part even more streamlined.
This app is incredibly underrated. Allowing siri shortcuts to be triggered via notifications is a feature that Apple should have included from the start. The only thing that would make this app better would be time and location based triggers built natively into the app...which I’ve heard from the developer are coming soon. Great developer support as well!
Developer Response ,
thanks, that is really great to hear!
and as you say: features for triggering notifications "on device" through schedule or location-based rules are being added right now and will be available soon.
can't wait to get this into your hands!
They require a subscription for any basic uses of this app. At least we should be able to use the basic features without a subscription. Money should be optional. The devs don't know the first thing about making a functional subscription service.
Edit: last time I checked, the input parameters are blocked without a pro subscription.
Developer Response ,
I am really sorry you feel that way. The free version allows you to send unlimited notifications for up to three different use cases/shortcuts.
Which feature would you need in the free package to get "basic use" for you?
You are correct: passing input parameters - along with the other customization options in the JSON interface - are part of the Pro level currently priced at 2$/month.
I am sorry that this pricing does not work for you, but for now I will stick with it. The JSON interface will be extended very soon, and I will consider your point of moving the basic input parameters to the free version. I cannot make any promises yet though.
