You know those “push” notifications you get on your phone and on your computer? The ones that pop up that you cannot ignore?
Image having the ability to send out push notifications from your own website — such as every time you publish a new blog post.
That is what Roost enables. When you install it on your site, visitors will have the chance to opt-in to receive push notifications from you. Currently, Roost only supports the Safari browser in OS Mavericks, but they are adding support for Chrome and Firefox push notifications soon.
After your notifications go out, if someone misses it, it will remain in their Notifications center until they clear it.
You can set up Roost to automatically send a push notification when you publish a new post. Or you can login to Roost and send a notification anytime.
Cost: Free for 100,000 web push notifications/month; premium option of $29/month for 1 million notifications, plus the ability to send geo-targeted messages to your audience
