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!

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”…

Today in the San Jose Mercury News:

Interview with Greg Woock, co-founder/CEO, Pinger

“Woock reckons Pinger is the seventh-largest data carrier in the country. And now he’s expanding into Europe, where a fragmented telecom industry has him predicting a dramatic ramp-up of last year’s $20 million in revenue.

In an interview, Woock — who was previously a top lieutenant to Sir Richard Branson — held forth on the future of his 60-person company and of the broader telecommunications industry…”
