Previously I mentioned the open source APNS-PHP push notification server, and PyAPNS Python based push notification server.

Here’s a C# library (Mono Compatible) that allows you to send push notifications to iOS apps along with Android, Windows Phone, and some support for Blackberry applications.

Here’s a list of features from the readme:

– Supports sending push notifications for many platforms:

– Apple (APNS – iOS – iPhone, iPad)
– Android (GCM/C2DM – Phone/Tablets)
– Windows Phone 7 / 7.5 (and 8 presumably when it’s released)
– Blackberry (Not fully functional)

– Fluent API for constructing Notifications for each platform
– Auto Scaling of notification channels (more workers/connections are added as demand increases, and scaled down as it decreases)
– Asynchronous code where possible, use of library is very event oriented
– 100% managed code awesomeness for Mono compatibility!

You can find the library PushSharp on Github here.

You can find a tutorial illustrating how to use PushSharp with iOS applications in the Wiki here.

Another good alternative for sending push notifications.
