    Hi!

    I'm a Java/J2EE developer, but since a week I "became" an Android developer, while our company needs to develop an application for Android. The application is "Find my Droid", is must be a release like apple has for iPhone : Apple - MobileMe - Find your iPhone or iPad..
    So the main problem and also my question is : does Android has a central push server? like iPhone does (iPhone Push Notification Server). Because our server needs to push notification message to Android, when somebody wants to find their phone, so I guess I have to develop an application which is connected continuously to a server. Please share your opinion, and tell me if there is a PUSH SERVER (for ANDROID ; for FREE). I know there is one from Ericsson : https://labs.ericsson.com/apis/mobile-push, and another : Xtify Developer: Home. But I want to know if there is a special one for Android.

    Thank You very much

    Barni - thanks for mentioning Xtify above. I am certain that we are the "special" one for Android. Have a look. Xtify push notifications are free and should be able to do what you are looking for while preserving battery, anonymity and your time. Also, ericsson relies on SMS (ie $$$), while we use XMPP push. Good luck with it and if you need help, do not hesitate to write us at support@xtify.com developer.xtify.com
