Hi Bitcoin fellows,
you've now downloaded my app (BTC Push Monitor) more than 500 times, and I think you should decide what feature I'll implement next. I'm a regular at MtGox and TradeHill myself, and personally I've had a lot of use for the app, but I've identified a couple of nice-to-have features as well.

If you're not allready familiar with the app, the BTC Push Monitor lets you specify low and high ticker values, and you're notified instantly when the index moves and one of your levels are crossed. The application (and backend server) used Google's Cloud 2 Device Messaging framework, which uses true push functionality to notify Android devices, even when they're in "Deep sleep". The app never performs any polling, and don't drain your battery. The app is totally free, -I don't even have ads. You can find it in Android Market: https://market.android.com/details?id=no.skjervold

I welcome all suggestions for features! After you guys have suggested some, I'll create a poll, and I'll implement the feature with the most votes.

I've received emails from users wanting to be able to change notification sounds, and wanting to specify which exchange (TradeHill, MtGox etc) to follow. But I'm open for anything making the app better.

Thanks to everyone that gave me nice feedback through Android Market.
Happy trading everyone!

Cheers,
Eflite

My buddy has one for the IPhone for review with apple right now, should be out within a week (allthough it's hard to predict anything with Apple's review process). It'll be free, with much the same functionality, based on IOs' Push framework.

I don't think anything is available for PC yet. One would need a desktop application keeping a tcp connection open, or possibly a web app using Websockets. However, I believe it's better suited for mobile devices, since you always carry them around in your pocket (you would obviously need to sit in front of your computer in order to be instantly notified...).

Mine says and always has "MtGox Problem" and goes for the Trade Hill pricing even though MtGox has clearly been up for a few days.  Please update program, it's great!

Is there any way to get an email as well as a notification? If I could set both, I'm never so far away as to not have one or the other.
