    You know how when you get a new SMS Message, a pop-up notification comes up and alerts you that you have a new message, shows the name of the person you recieved the text from, and then shows a small preview of the message?

    Is there anyway to do this with e-mail? I know that e-mail can show badges, but I'm interested in having an actual pop-up message whenever I get a new e-mail.

    I recently installed MobileNotifier (Jailbreak app), and I absolutely LOVE it. However, MobileNotifier can only catalog notifications that have pop-up notifications, and not badges. I would love to have my e-mails incorporated into this.

    Any ideas? Thanks. (Also, sorry if I'm not being very clear. If I'm making no sense, please let me know and I'll try and clarify.)

    I use the Pushmail app for that. Works great.

    That PushMail app looks like it would work PERFECTLY! However, I'm not willing to fork out $4.99 for an app, even if it is just a one-time fee. Are they any other suggestions?

    im sure you wouldnt think twice about throwing away $4.99 on a crappy lunch at a fast food place or a few cups of coffee, why do people think $4.99 heck ive even heard people say they wouldn't pay 99cents on an app.


    even if your sick of the app in a week you got more use out of it then those few cups of coffee or that crappy lunch

    Sure, I spent more than $5 on my lunch today, yes. But in my mind, food is more of a necessity than an iPhone application. Plus, I'm not THAT desperate for this. It's more a convenience for me, and if there is a free alternative to get rid of a slight annoyance, then yes, I would LOVE to, but I'm not going to shell out $5 for it. If it involves spending money, I'll just live with the native way in which iOS handles Notifications.

    pushmail is well worth the $5 and much more IMO. Instant notification. Rules, multiple email accounts with different notification sounds for each, pop-ups on the screen with as little or as much info as you want. Want me to list more?

    I'm using MobileNotifier as well and it rocks! :cool: Can't wait until they incorporate their own quickreply system so that I can uninstall BiteSMS

    LockInfo does this but it is a commercial package, well worth it though. My notifications now pretty much work like on Android, nothing pops up to interrupt me and I can see notifications on the lock screen or pull down the status bar to see them.

    I love the option of "quiet hours". That was worth the $5 to me.

    +1 for boxcar

    I know IM+ will also do this also, i believe the free version does include this feature.

    there, you now have a few free options... but seriously think about supporting developers. No support = no apps
