    I have the latest version of AP Mobile installed for roughly 6 hours and I haven't gotten a single push notification.

    Has anyone?? and yes notifications are turned on. Sound, Badge and Message

    While Beta testing it there were hardly any notifications. Seems more breaking news information.

    Nope, no push for me. Hey apple it's good to see that your new software never delivers like it was claimed to. How much would it cost for apple to buy the twitter fail whale?

    There should have been push apps available to update to after installing 3.0. When 2.0 launched there were apps available. They didn't launch the app store and it sit empty waiting for things.

    Way to extrapolate from one app. :rolleyes: Maybe AP Mobile hasn't sent anything yet?

    In another thread, someone just said he (she?) got a push notification of a tornado warning from Weather Alert five minutes before it was on the local news.

    Do you know what you're talking about? We don't know if this is Apple's fault, yet. It could just be that AP doesn't push every single news item.

    As for the last part of your post - Apple has no control over what apps are ready for 3.0/push.

    Its not Apples fault, its the Apps. And the Push server is DEFINITELY not overloaded right now because theres only about 10 apps that do Push Notifications right now.

    I don't think this is Apple's fault; the other three push apps I have installed are all delivering updates flawlessly and with virtually no delay.

    Needed App. That Uses Notifications

    I just went through AP app. and set it up. When I went back to settings the "Notifications" red eye showed. So it must be app. sensitive. No notifications have come through, but I've only had it on for a couple of minutes. Hope this helps.

    I'm looking forward to BeeJive update so I can get IM notifications under 3.0.

    On mine, I have AP Mobile v3

    However, in Settings there are no option for Push Notifications. Therefore, can not se AP Mobile Push settings. ANyone else have the same problem?

    You have to open the app one time to activate it.

    back in the beta test of the AP app it only pushed breaking news events, so don't hold your breath thinking it's going to push every little story your way.

    Just download Textfree Lite and and start texting friends (or yourself) and you can enjoy as many push notifications as your heart desires. Does anybody really want AP sending them notifications for every single trivial news development? That could get old real fast.

    People that complain about this push notification within 12 hours of the release of the software are pathetic. These are the same people who aren't happy unless they aren't happy.

    Seriously, you might want to find something else in life to do besides look for fault in cell phone software :rolleyes:

    It's for breaking news, which I honestly haven't seen much of on the app. On the actual news wire, recent stuff has been like the GOP senator admitting to an affair. It's slugged "BREAKING NEWS" and then there's a sentence or two saying what.

    One good chance to test this is when whomever wins the US Open this weekend. Those type things are almost always breaking news for us. But I'm still trying to get our smaller paper on that app because I'm sick of seeing just the big boys providing "local" content. They just have some intern dump every story from the area they have. AP guy hasn't gotten back to me in a month, so that's how that situation is going.

    Don't worry, I've been complaining about an advertised-yet-undelivered feature sold to me in a $360+ piece of electronics and still undelivered after 12 months at $90+ a month.

    But you're right, after 12 months and $1440+ spent for missing features I'm only now seeing trickle through, I shouldn't really complain.

    maybe Apple doesnt have dedicated Push servers yet, probably still bogged down with 3.0. don't see it improving within the next few days either

    It's ok now. Silly me, should have thought about Windows theory. Uninstall, re-install!!!

    Just got my first AP news Push notification. (I'm using Alert and Badge for this app.)
