Pushover Device Clients

For organizations looking to make a bulk purchase of iOS, Android, and/or Desktop licenses for its employees or customers, please see our Volume Licensing Tool.

Pushover-android
Pushover for Android

Our Android device client uses Google's secure push notification service for instant delivery of Pushover messages without a dedicated polling service to waste battery power or bandwidth. Requires at least Android 2.2 and is optimized for Android 4 and Android 5.

Pushover for Android also includes a widget that can be added to the home screen to quickly view notifications (requires Android 4). A lock-screen widget is also available for Android 4.2, as well as an integrated DashClock extension for showing unread notifications on the lock screen. For users of the Pebble watch, Pushover can also forward notifications to display on your wrist. For Tasker users, Pushover includes a Tasker action plugin.

Available now on Google Play for free with a 7-day trial!


Pushover-iphone
Pushover for iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad)

Our iOS client uses Apple's secure push notification service for instant delivery of Pushover messages. Supports all newer iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad devices running iOS 7 or higher and is optimized for Retina displays.

Pushover for iOS uses new functionality in iOS 7 to do background updates when you receive notifications, making your messages arrive faster and ready as soon as you open the application. For iOS 8, Pushover now includes notification actions to open URLs and acknowledge messages right from the notification center.

For Apple Watch users, Pushover includes an Apple Watch app to view and acknowledge notifications on the watch, as well as scroll through past messages

Available now in the App Store for free with a 7-day trial!


Pushover-desktop
Pushover for Desktop (Chrome, Firefox, Safari/Mac OS X)

Our browser client enables desktop notifications in newer versions of Chrome (including Chrome OS), Firefox, and Safari when you have a tab open to our desktop app website. Notifications are securely pushed to your browser in real-time using a bandwidth-efficient mechanism and messages are downloaded and stored offline in your browser.

On newer versions of Mac OS X, notifications can be pushed directly to the desktop without needing any browser running (requires initial registration with Safari).

Available now at our website for free with a 7-day trial!


Unofficial User-Created Clients

Using our Pushover Open Client API, developers are empowered to create client apps to receive Pushover notifications on additional platforms beyond what we support.

While these applications use our official API, we cannot vouch for their security or reliability and users must use them at their own risk. All technical support requests for these apps must be directed to the authors of the specific application.

Note: usage of any Pushover Open Client applications after 7 days requires a one-time purchase of a Pushover for Desktop license directly from our website (in addition to any possible fees imposed by the author of the software). One Desktop license is valid for all Open Client devices on your account (as well as our own Desktop client).
