Easy APNs Provider is a tool for apple developers who want to test whether Apple Push Notification Service works on their devices.
First you should make sure you have a APNs certificate file, name like aps_development.cer, which is requested on your Mac from Apple DEV center, and, of course, related with your app.
Make sure this certificate and the related private key have been installed in your keychain (If you applied the cert with your Mac, the private key and the cert should have been automatically installed).
Download this app.
Press Add Token to add the tokens of your devices which were given by app delegate.
Select your certificate file.
Choose APNs server. Domain with sandbox is for development and without sandbox is for production.
Connect to server.
Select what kind of payload you wanna push. You can write your own payload by clicking "Raw" tab button.
Push and wait for result. Were there an error, information of it shall appear in status field.
content-available key added in convenient payload constructor.

Great Utility app to test Push Notifications
I was having such hard time sending test push notifications from my Mac using Curl or some Python scripts. I was hitting open ssl issues.
This tool saved the day. Worked like a charm on first try.
Does what you want easy and great for testing but it would be great if I could add multiple tokens through a csv file. It has a add from files option but no documenation on how to use it. Other than that its been very useful.
Been using it for a while. But sadly it hasn’t been updated to use the new authorization token approach. We no longer need to use certificates. So I can’t test that type of setup with this app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
