Prowl Not Working on my iPhone 4

Postby taiidani » Tue Jun 29, 2010 5:03 am

Hi, I'm trying to get Prowl working on my iPhone 4. The end result is that I want to use it as an endpoint for GVMax notifications, but currently I can't even get the Prowl site's notifications to work. The notifications show up in the app, but it doesn't alert the phone when Prowl isn't open. I've tried toggling wifi on and off and restarting the phone like the FAQ says, but still am not having any luck.
Any ideas on how to get it up and running?

Oookay, nevermind. It just sent about 20 to my phone at once. I guess they decided to queue up on Apple's end and sit for hours at a time....odd.

Sometimes Apple's servers, lately, don't send the push notifications right away. Usually it's a transient issue.

Ah, yeah, hence the "Don't rely on push for time-critical notifications" policy I've read about. Now I guess I just have firsthand knowledge. Fortunately the setup I'm looking for would only use Prowl as a fallback. Thanks for the reply!
