Hey Product Hunters! This is the same as Batch Insights but in a simple JSON feed format. Our API let's you grab any push from any app in realtime so you can integrate push notifications data within your CMS, intelligence dashboard or alert system: track news, track brands, track delivery. We're launching today so please let our team know what you think!

@virtualgoodz looks very interesting, curious to give it a shot. The obvious question is do you get access to any push going over the wire or only on apps where you're integrated?
Simon DawlatMaker@virtualgoodz · CEO,
@furqanr yep – push going over the wire, otherwise we wouldn't be able to offer the service. also while we offer push notification service on we never cross that data with Batch Insights. what's your email? I'll get an API token over to you.

@_jacksmith So would you use this to just get information from the users of your app on your competitors? Or would you use this to enhance the app for the users? Just trying to figure out applications.

@blainehatab see how other apps use push notifications. i.e. what times of day work best etc

What would be some use cases for the api?
Simon DawlatMaker@virtualgoodz · CEO,
hey @blendahtom thanks for asking! 1. Brand monitoring For example, you can track all the push notifications with the brand "Nike" in it, like here 2. News monitoring For example, who's covering antitrust charges against Google in Europe: 3. Delivery monitoring Both these notifications were "received" at 09:11 PST on March 29, 2015 for Flipp and at 12:40 PST on April 14, 2015 for the NYTimes (that's something you get as part of our Pro mode). 4. ????? :)
Simon DawlatMaker@virtualgoodz · CEO,
