Apple today announced it has removed iCloud and MobileMe push capabilities for its customers in Germany. The move is the result of Motorola’s successful injunction there over cloud syncing push technology, according to AppleInsider.
I've kept my eyes on all the new apps featuring Push Notifications and this week I'll tell you about the ones I think are worth downloading. But first, I want to share with you an app disorder I've developed.
iTwitter shakes up the Twitter app landscape by beating out Twittelator, Tweetie, Twitterrific, Tweetdeck, Twitterfon and all the other major iPhone Twitter clients to become the first to deliver Push Notifications from a dedicated client. There is a catch though.
AIM and BeejiveIM beat Shape Services to the release of Push Notification instant messaging by a couple days, but Shape Services has a trick up their sleeves. Actually, the company has a couple. First, it pushes your Twitter account to your iPhone. Second, it pushes Skype voicemail.
As luck usually has it this post will go live and sometime shortly thereafter it'll be invalidated. I still have to ask the question though because I think it's on a lot of people's minds. I certainly don't want to be that guy who cries wolf.
We've had a great response to our Applists so we've decided to make it a little easier to find out what's going on. We're going to begin tweeting every new app we add to our definitive lists on Push Notifications, Mapping and Peer To Peer apps. All the apps on these lists make use of iPhone OS 3.0's newest features and, so far, there aren't as many of them as you might think. However, they're trickling in all the time and we're adding them to the lists as they debut.
