Tutorial How it works

The aim of this app is to receive important push-messages on your smartphone or tablet from software running on an internet connected computer, e.g. Repetier-Host.

The software sents all messages to defined groups. All members of a group receive the same message, so that you can receive your the messages on your smartphone and on your tablet. Your App can be a member of multiple groups.

A group is a uniquely named id, which is shared between the sender and one or more receivers. In the software, that sends the message, the corresponding group must be specified.

  5. Enter your group id you created here as Informer-Group.
  6. Click on the test button to send a push-message to all members of the group.
For other programs it will be similar.
