Nope, Apple doesn't allow me to do anything like custom sounds for push notifications.

Thanks for the answer, but how did you get the sounds into the app witch are in the app at the moment (like: rezso, bidi (long), chime, four beep, etc.)?

I can distribute sounds with Prowl, I just can't play sounds for push notifications that aren't distributed with it. Sorry for the confusion.

Hello zac,

thanks for explaning. But doesn't that mean, that you can make a Prowl update with new sounds and this sounds could be used in prowl after that? If yes, can you add some loud and angry sounds wich are playing long as bidi (long)? The App is realy great but i don't wake up with the sounds which are on board this time.

thx a lot!

I would second this request. I would like a good long warning type sound as an option. Love the app by the way. :smile:

Hi Zac,

I have a jailbroken phone (because I really don't care what Apple wants), and in the past I had replaced your standard .caf sounds with my own sound files with the same names as yours. That worked great and my sounds were played as appropriate.

Now with the new jailbreak (FINALLY!), I put my sounds back in just like I had done in the past, but now they don't play. Is this because of an iOS change with code signing or something like that?

Is there no possible chance I can get this to work again the way it used to? Remember, I don't really care what Apple wants...

Thanks,
Ken

Hi,

I'd also vote for this request to add a few more sounds:

I'd be looking for something in between the long "bidi" and all the other sounds, a bit more intrusive than the four beeps for example, but not as long as "bidi", for example "four-longer-beeps" ?
A configuration option to make the onboard sounds repeat (either a number of repeats or a number of seconds to sound) could be an alternative maybe.

Thanks in advance,
Anton

Same here, it would be great if there were some new sounds. I think you'd just have to replace the file.
