Apple iOS push notification backend for user notification system
Open, NormalPublic

Description

For the iOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch) app to show background notifications for user messages and other things, we'll need server-side support to manage device subscriptions and send pings off to Apple's servers.

Will also need client-side support to use it.

client side is easy (really, really easy). It's the server part that is critical.

I know of two systems that are open source; http://code.google.com/p/apns-php/ and http://www.easyapns.com/php-source but i'm not aware of it's performance and/or featuresets.

Probably best to combine the google and ios push services into one system. not sure which one of them would be the easiest to extend for that.
