How does it work?

Postby serializer » Fri Jun 01, 2012 7:34 am

I am new to prowl and would like to know if it fits my organization. Here are my questions:

1. is it using some kind of polling technique that requires the iphone to be connected at all times?
2. can I send to multiple iphone devices, how if so?
3. I see that there is a Growl client as well. Can I send message to that through API?

Thanks

No, Prowl uses the Apple Push Notification System, which is a built-in feature. It maintains a connection to the Apple server and, when a new notification comes in, downloads it. No polling is done.

2. can I send to multiple iphone devices, how if so?


Install it on multiple devices and it will work.

No, not at this time.
