Developer Josh Pressnell has updated the $4.99 eNotify iOS app adding additional services in preparation for Apple's iOS 7. As a reminder, we first told you about eNotify in relation to the Pebble smart watch. As a notification configurator for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, eNotify allowed users of the intelligent wristwatch to set up push notifications for email services not supported by the official Pebble iPhone app. Now, however, using changes made in iOS 7, eNotify is able to offer users push email support for Exchange Web Services (EWS) accounts. The app's developer explains:
The Exchange server notifies our server when new messages arrive using a private token, which is then passed along to the app via push notice. No account credentials, server information, or email data is ever passed to our server. This option finally delivers private and secure push messaging for Exchange EWS users and *dramatically* increases the battery life of the device.Further changes made in the latest version of eNotify, however, include:
The updated app, eNotify 3.6, reached the App Store yesterday. However, as of this writing, the free version of eNotify hasn't received the update. As mentioned, eNotify can be downloaded in the App Store for $4.99, and is optimized for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
