Make sure your device rings when you get a text or call
by enabling notifications for Pinger!

What is a Notification?
Pinger uses Apple’s Push Notification Service to send you alerts when you are outside of the app. Your device will show you a pop-up (and usually play a sound) to let you know that a new message has arrived.

Why don’t I get Notifications?
When you first set up Pinger we asked if it’s ok to alert you about new messages. Sometimes users decline the option by mistake (you aren’t alone, we’ve accidentally done it too). This is the most common reason that people don’t get Notifications.

How do I turn Notifications on?
You’ll need to go into the settings of your iOS device to turn Notifications back on. We have a couple of helpful tips below, and detailed instructions plus screen shots can be found on this Support page.

  • Make sure you’re using iOS 4.0 or later and have the latest version of Pinger.
  • Turn your ringer volume ALL the way up while IN the app.
  • Is your device jailbroken? Sorry, notifications won’t work!

A Pinger employee noticed some exciting activity as they went past the office this weekend…

Sure enough, we arrived Monday morning to see our brand new Pinger sign outside.
What a great start to the week!

Today was a very historic day for Pinger.
It was the first ever PJ (that’s “pajama”) Day for our headquarters in San Jose, CA!

Things started out great:

But after lunch…

Must have been all those late nights making apps!

Yesterday, employees at Pinger Headquarters headed outside with some handy dandy Eclipse Shades to watch the transit of Venus.

 

 

 

 

 

Venus passed in front of the sun and said “hi!”  We all shouted back “hello!”  She’ll be back again in December 2117.

 

 

 

In retrospect, we should have let her know about our apps. Woulda made her think twice about taking that long trip again just to say “Hi”…
