The app is back with a new name: Slk Notifications for Facebook. The logo and name change were a requirement of Facebook due to their trademarks. I have also set up a new, much faster server to send notifications and they should be much better now. Big thanks to the writers of Rolling Curl for their very handy PHP class. As time allows I will be updating the app and hopefully releasing a paid version soon.
Facebook has sent me a DMCA takedown notice for copyright infringement so my Facebook Notifications
app has been taken off the market. I am working to get it back on the market, but in the mean time you can
here (Update: Facebook Notifications is available on the Play store again).
Please check back here from time to time, I will post updates and let you know when my app is back on the market.
I am also working on shortening the delay in the notifications and some issues people have been having with not getting notifications.
I'll be giving a talk at Iowa Code Camp this month on
Android's Cloud to Device Messaging, C2DM. The source code from the talk can be found
here (Update: Google has moved to GCM and now to FCM and has extensive
documentation on their website).
This talk is based on a portion of the work I did on my
Facebook Notifications App.
