Uptime Robot is already integrated with the free and easy-to-use Boxcar app for sending iOS push messages.
Lately, the app has a new version, Boxcar 2, and the old version will be inactive in the next weeks.
Uptime Robot now supports Boxcar 2 and “any alert contacts for the older version will be deactivated on 11 April 2014 (7 days later)“.
In order to keep getting iOS push messages, please make sure that you:
- install the Boxcar 2 app (note that the user-pass in the old Boxcar app is no longer valid, a new account shall be created in Boxcar 2)
- define its “Access Token” as an alert contact
- attach this alert contact to the monitors preferred.
Friendly Names For Alert Contacts
With this update, we have added the ability to define friendly names for alert contacts so that it’ll become much easier to distinguish them from each other.
That’s all for now :).
