An app with the sole purpose of sending you push notifications when people stars your GitHub repos.

・eye-pleasing icon to your home screen
・gentle notification on your GitHub repo stars
・badge number indicating unread star count
・clean, gesture driven UI / UX
・works with two factor authentication (2FA)

The app technically uses no central server, nor Apple push notification infrastructure. It actually sets up local notifications utilizing iOS 7 background fetch feature that pulls down your GitHub star events periodically then notifies you about the difference towards star events stored locally up till then (this also means that notification will be delivered only if you do not remove the app from background).

Notifying time period varies based on app usage, network connectivity, overall iOS activity, and other exotic factors by which iOS 7 orchestrates background fetches. Based on my tests it typically ranges from 5-15 minutes.

The sign in flow incorporates two factor authentication (2FA) as well, also supports login using web browser to ensure compatibility with GitHub enterprise accounts.
