    I suggest using my iPhone application Push 4.0 available at http://2apn.com – it was featured by ReadWriteWeb as the top 10 geeky RSS iPhone app for its push availability: http://www.readwriteweb.com/archives/top_10_feed_rss_technologies_of_2011.php

    The site is online but the service began to stop pushing quite a while ago. I already left the sinking ship last month.

    Sleazy way to spam for your app, fabienpenso. Just so everyone, knows, Push 4.0 is a subscription model where you have to keep paying for bundles of notifications. Also, if you’re not careful when setting it up, its default is to push an ad for itself out to your Twitter followers. Cute!

    Back on topic — I’m getting very sporadic notifications on Boxcar, but it does appear to be dead. I wrote support about a month ago about missing notifications, got no response. Deactivating it presently, will be relying on the official Gmail and Twitter apps for notifications.
