How is everybody finding push? Has it lived up to expectations?
Its a bit hit and miss for me. I use IM+ and sometimes it pushes messages through in almost real time and other times i get 6 or 7 all at the same time from hours ago. Some days are better than other i would say.
I have been using it with Beejive and it has been excellent, Instant as well
Beejive has been great when it doesnt keep disconnecting me.
I've been using AIM and HeyWAY all week and it's worked flawlessly for both so far!
Havent got a notification from AP since Michael Jackson died.
So AIM is working for you?
I'm not getting a contact list in the AIM app or IM+ for my AIM contacts. I can still receive messages but can't see anybody.
None of them have ever worked on my 2G so I gave up.
I thought the push system would be great, but so far I've been pretty disappointed.
I hope it's just a holdover until iPhone 4.0 introduces multi-tasking.
Same here. That was almost a week ago. Has anyone received any notificaitons from AP since then? The last one I received was that Michael Jackson was rushed to the hospital. Not that I'm too disappointed. The push notification for the AP app seem pretty worthless.
Im not a big IM user, but I installed the free AIM app just to test it out, and its worked pretty much flawlessly so far.
i got a couple the other day saying MJ's mom was getting custody of his kids....
used notifications for a few days, realised it drained the heck out of the battery (1% battery loss every 5mins?) turned it off, have since enjoyed long battery life
This was just beejive push.
Hope im not the only one experiencing this
Turned it off to save battery
Might change and re enable it when more apps get it, at the moment very disappointing
I wonder how battery life would be affected when Apple adds multitasking and users leave all those apps running?
As long as Apple give the option to run things in the background I dont see a problem
If push had more apps I was interested in using it then I would put up with a worse battery life
Same with multitasking, If I could select which apps I want to run in the background then great, I would just re charge more
After looking at push I would love to have multitasking, push just seems a poor way of doing things
I think I've only received one from AP.
I didn't download AIM though.
do push notifications count as a SMS?
Also, do Instant Messages on AIM count as a SMS?
I'm new to AT&T and just curious.
You'll enjoy your new phone.
haha, so what's the answer about AIM Instant Messages counting as SMS messages?
thanks for the quick reply!
does it really save a lot of battery having it off? I can't imagine it makes a huge difference, but who knows.
I've had it on hoping AP would send more, but no such luck. I just cut it off as well, and will just wait for more Apps to use it.
Not a really annoying amount
I usually charge my phone every night
With push off, If i forget to charge one night, next day it lasts till early afternoon
With push on, If I forget to charge one night it is flat when I wake up
They don't count as SMS messages. It's just data.
It depends if those apps are actively processing in the background. If they are not, there will be no impact on battery life. The majority of apps fit that criteria, even many apps that use data for their content, such as news apps. Usually they only update their content when you launch the app or manually refresh. If left running in the background they wouldn't be processing anything or accessing data. In fact, multi-tasking would probably improve battery life in this case as you wouldn't need to close/re-launch when switching tasks which would force it to fetch data uneccessarily.
Maybe their servers are just 'bad'?
I dont understand. I have the 3.0 OS on my iPhone 3G. I installed Beejive. And I dont get and Push notifications. But On my iPod touch 2G. I get them. Why?
