Newtifry Server update

In order to improve privacy, user messages are not saved in database anymore

Newtifry quotas

I have to limit the max number of messages by day because some users send up to 1 message every 4 seconds (21000 by day)

and the server can't handle too many messages

The limit is fixed at 1440 by day (1 message every minute)

Sorry for this limitation

What is Newtifry?

Newtifry is a push notification service to send server notifications to Android Mobile phones, running Android 2.2 (Froyo) or later. It uses Google Cloud Messaging APIs.

It is intended to replace notifications sent by SMS. SMS cost money to send, and for single user applications (like personal Nagios servers) this can give you real time notifications for free.

Unlike other systems that do the server monitoring for you, Newtifry is just intended to get the message to the phone - and no more. Newtifry is meant to be very simple and just focus on getting the notifications to the phone. You can plug Newtifry into your existing monitoring system to get the notifications going. Users supply the system administrators with a single unique key that identifies at message source, which they can enable or disable at will.

How much and where do I get it?

Newtifry is free, and all the code is available under the Apache 2 License.
