Introducing Push Notifications for Remember The Milk app

Monday, June 29, 2009 by Emily Boyd

We're excited to announce that the latest version of the RTM app is now available on the App Store (look for version number 1.1.0). As previously mentioned, this update improves stability and performance on the iPhone 3.0 software, and fixes some bugs that are specific to iPhone 3.0 (the “swipe to complete” feature is back! :).

We've also snuck in one much-requested bonus feature: Push Notifications. For those not familiar with this new feature in iPhone OS 3.0, the Apple Push Notification service allows RTM to send instant task reminder alerts to your device. After updating and launching the RTM app, you'll be prompted to allow Push Notifications for RTM:

Allow Push Notifications

Once allowed, RTM will start sending reminders to your device via the Push Notification service (you can configure your reminder settings here on the RTM website):

We hope you like it! Want to learn more about the app in general? Check out the Remember The Milk for iPhone & iPod touch section of the site.

Update: We have a silly bug in version 1.1.0 that's preventing the Push Notification alerts from having sound (or vibrating). We've fixed this in 1.1.1, which will hopefully be available soon. In the meantime, please feel free to provide your own sound by imitating the device when a notification appears on screen (or if you're more creative, perhaps making a "moooo" sound?). Sorry everyone!
