How to send Push Notifications from an iPhone

Introduction

If you’re an iOS or Android developer, you probably have a couple of apps at their respective stores, and some of your apps maybe all of them support push notifications.

Google has a great tool for doing it: Firebase. With Firebase you can setup your app to receive push notifications, send push notifications, see the statistics of your app and so on.

But for accessing the painel you need to be on a computer, login and then send the push notification to your app. What if you could send it from your iPhone with only the server key and topic needed ?

With Push Robot you can send Push Notification to all your apps,  you can also see your sent notifications, duplicate one of your last notifications and get some help at the Help Session.

In order to make it simple to send push notifications to your app through FCM, The Push Robot app requires only the server Key of your App, the topic your app is registered and an internet connection.

To get the Server Key:

  1. click the settings icon/cog wheel next to your project name at the top of the new Firebase Console
  2. Click Project settings
  3. Click on the Cloud Messaging tab
  4. The key is right under Server Key
