I'm now using the Stack Exchange API to power my native iPhone Stack Overflow app and I'm deciding what to add next. I've run into a number of people who want to have push notifications added but I'm not sure if people just think it will be neat or would actually get something out of it. If you have specific areas you would want to get notifications for please let me know. Notifications will be second on the list of features to add if there seems to be enough interest, first on the list is allowing access to other Stack Exchange sites.
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
Push notification on new answers to your question and comments to you in general would be great. As would ability to browse sites outside SO. ( For instance, I visit SO very rarely, I'm on SU almost every day & meta once/twice a week).
I would like to have push notification of any reputation change and on new answers/comments.
Now I'm not using the API, I'm just reading the main page to see how much reputation I have, making a request every 10 seconds.
