    In an e-mail sent to iPhone developers testing iPhone OS 3.0 betas, Apple announced the start of testing of high-volume Push Notifications using a pre-release version of the Associated Press iPhone application. The current test will run for seven days.

    Apple activated Push Notifications just over one month ago, allowing developers to begin testing their with the service, which allows iPhone applications to receive updates while they are not actively running.

    Code not working

    I tried to get the ap with the redemption code from the email and received a message that the code had already been used. I am the only developer on my account. Has this happened to anyone else? I emailed Apple for a new one.

    At least they are testing it. With so many iphone users, the damn service needs to work the first time out the gate for consumers.

    Also in the UK and unable to download this app from iTunes - High volume testing? When this version goes live worldwide the Apple push servers will be hit so hard, how testing this in the US only is of any use or indication to Apple of the demand goodness only knows!

    maybe they decided that there are plenty of developers in the US...
    or perhaps they plan to test in places other than the US, but aren't prepared to do so...

    I'm in the same situation, but I think there's a bigger issue

    Why on earth can only US accounts claim App redeem codes?!

    There is NO good reason for this, apart from Apple being difficult.

    It's not because Apple are only wanting US developers. It's because only US accounts can claim App redeem codes.

    I got nothing. I feel so unloved. I've even have a US account to use it with.

    I'm from Germany, received the code and could use it to create a US iTunes account (didn't work with my German account). I've got the app on my iPhone but haven't received any notifications yet. I'm glad they test it with a lot of users.

    Got the email, and a code. I attempted to redeem the code and it informed me that it only valid for customers of the US store. Apple knows I'm Canadian, it said so in the email...

    Guess I'll have to try again later.

    Just got my first notification with the app for a breaking news story about Goldman Sachs or some ****. Seems to be working so far, although it really gives me no control over what I want notifications for exactly.

    Go to your Settings > Notifications > AP News

    Got mine. Felt very much like SMS. I feel like I should be able to slide to view will take me to the app like SMS alerts do.
