Awesome app, reliable service, outstanding developer


I have been using Pushover for more than a year to receive critical alerts for work. I go on call once every three weeks and this app has never let me down. The feature that I like the most from the paid service is that I can create an application with its own email address and set up my alerts to go to that email address. Any of my devices running pushover can then receive that alert. The service itself is far more configurable than that but for the sake of brevity I will keep it short. Also one of my other favorite things is the API. We are going to be doing some very interesting things with alerts that require acknowledgment. My biggest request is that Superblock LLC would add a third type of alert (level 3?) that has an approve/deny response instead of a simple repeat alert until acknowledged. I would like to be able to push approve/deny workflow items to my phone and be able to capture those responses on the backend or with a postback like I can with level 2. It would also be great if the repeat frequency of the level 2 and 3 alerts could be configured.

Does what is it supposed to do very well.


I have been using pushover for work-related notifications for over a year. The api is reliable and very easy to use in scripts and integrations. I have various custom scripts and an alert in datadog sending me notifications. I use different icons for different things and I have scheduled don't-disturbe set up around night hours and weekends.

Using with Particle Photon

Arduino Pro

Developed a Wi-Fi garage door opener using a Particle Photon and IFTTT. Using this app I can have a different sound for door opened, door closed, door stuck half way and reminder to close the door after 10pm. All the things you can’t do with a commercial Wi-Fi door opener. Also it’s nice to know when family members made it home safely.
