    "Free version pushes notifications about the song Baby by Justin Bieber every 30 minutes."

    Brilliant.

      Honestly, this made me laugh so hard that I almost bought it instantly, despite having no current need for it.

      Take note, service creators!

    I call this a perk

    Hi there,

    I'm the developer of Hooks.

    I'm glad you like the terms of the free version, I doubt anyone would like it, beside Felix Terpstra!

    Hooks is a MVP. Although I don't like MVP's, but it really is atm. I'm currently developing Hooks 1.1 , which contains a lot of requested features. Here are some:

    • On/Off notifications (better notification control basically)
    • App that contains all the notifications + filtering.
    • Multiple API keys
    • Auto sign in on Launch + Logout.
    • Shorten link and implement a hook in it.
    • Block notifications by certain trollers.
    • Auto block trollers

    Charlie Hield, Zack Bloom and Walter Franchetti already contributed to make Hooks work with Javascript, node.js, cURL and Swift. That's awesome!

    Just let me know what else is missing and I'll consider it as an option to implement.

    So glad you all seem to like it. :)

    Saw this on product hunt yesterday and I have to say that it looks really neat. I'm probably not part of the target customer base, but I can see the appeal. Also, kickass url.

    Just bought this and it's so great. Nice job! My only criticism would be that I can't set a click-through URL or action on the notification. Other than that it's perfecto.

      I'm working on it. Should be fairly easy, yet powerful. Especially for Email Campaigns. :)

        Awesome, man! I was thinking last night that it would also be great to optionally have them be persistent (they stay on the screen until dismissed) or the standard time-out ones. Great job!

          He Jody, I'm not sure that's even possible. I've only seen it when there's an Apple update (today, tonight, tomorrow). It waits for feedback and then get's dismissed. I think only Apple have the ability to send such notifications.

          However, your notifications will be present in the App until you delete it. Only up to 500 notifications can be visible, but that shouldn't be problem.

    I made some wrappers if you want to call Hooks from PHP / Pyhton / Swift.

    If you use Pushbullet already, you can set up your own notification system.
