    I'm having trouble finding info about a specific notifications question I have. I'm wanting to implement push notifications so that when a new article with a specific tag from an RSS feed is available in my app, a badge is added to the app icon and the user is notified in notification center. One question I have is, since it's a notification for an RSS feed, do I need my own server to talk to the APNS?

    So, I found an article that I think answers my questions and yes I will need my own server.

    Unfortunaly yes you will, I would recommend using perhaps an Amazon EC2 Micro instance, that is super low cost. I would also recommend Urbanairship as a push supplier. They allow 1 million pushes a month for free. It may be easier to use then implementing your own push sockets on the server.

    Thanks. I will look at both of those suggestions.
