What is Push Notification?
Basically it allows any app to notify you of any event using an SMS like pop-up, a numbered badge over the app icon or a custom sound. Apple explains it better here.
Why do you need it?
It’s an awesome feature that, for one, allows you to have a proper IM client on your iPhone.
How can you make it work on your iPhone 2G?
There you go:
What all apps can you use?
Mashable has a a pretty good list. Or you can lookup Push Notification on the App Store.
What about the battery life?
I’ll test it for a few days and update this area with my findings.
UPDATE: Turning Push notifications on sucks battery life like anything. In 13 hours of normal usage the battery went down from 100% to 20%. Even worse, the battery went down from 80% to 60% in 3 hours while the phone was in sleep mode.
I’ve disabled Push Notifications. So much for the effort. @Apple, this needs to be taken care of.
