About a month ago I mentioned a handy library with a command line tool allowing you to test out push notifications on apps running in the simulator without needing to use Apple’s push notification service.
Here’s another handy tool for debugging push notifications directly on the device called APNS Pusher.
APNS pusher makes it easy to test push notifications on device (as long as the device is located on the same wifi network as your Mac) by allowing you to easily grab the certificate from your keychain, and automatically grabs the device token.
You can easily send your custom payload through the provided GUI interface. Here’s an image of APNS Pusher from the readme:
A nice tool for debugging push notifications.
