[Feature request] Custom icon

Postby ensamgud » Sun Jun 10, 2012 8:46 pm

Most growl-like apps and APIs allow inclusion of a custom icon to be displayed along with the notification. Would love to have that on prowl as well.

Ideally an icon parameter would be added to the API that accepts a path (URL or local path) to an icon that is displayed along with the notification on the ios device. If no icon is specified, the default prowl icon is shown.

Including icons is something I've been wrestling with for an upcoming version. The major downside is that they can't be shown in Notification Center or in the push popup on the lock screen.

Sad to hear that, I assume it's an iOS limitation?

Perhaps some day, if the notification list is visually modified (maybe grouping with tabs for each event, etc) icons could be useful to get a quick overview of what is what.
