Want to know as soon as something happens? Boxcar is for you!
Boxcar sends you a push notification anytime you receive a notification or message on Facebook. For example, when someone comments on your status - we'll let you know! We'll automatically open the Facebook application for you as well.
Boxcar sends you push notifications for Mentions, DMs, RTs, New Followers, Favorites, and whenever you're added to a list. The best part is, it works with over 35 of your favorite Twitter apps including: Twittelator, TweetDeck Twitter, Twitterrific, Osfoora, Hootsuite, Echofon (Lite and Pro), Twinkle, SimplyTweet, Twitterena+ (Lite and Pro), Hahlo.com, TwitBird Pro, and TwitBird!
You receive a push, then your favorite Twitter client is opened!
Power user? We support multiple twitter accounts!
Boxcar provides you with a unique e-mail address that you forward your e-mail to. We take privacy very, very seriously and only store who it's from, and the subject. We then send you a push notification!
Separate work from play? That's cool, we let you have multiple email accounts set up at the same time.
** Google Voice:
We'll send you a push notification whenever you receive a new voicemail or text. Open them right in GV Mobile.
** Google Buzz:
Boxcar sends notifications for updates to your stream, new likes, and comments! Not only that but you can open them in Buzzes!
Need to make sure your team is committing code, or want to monitor commits to your open source projects? Hook up Boxcar and Github to get notifications whenever a commit is made. Hint: Github notifications work best with the cash register sound!
** RSS or Atom Feeds:
Want to know as soon as your favorite websites are updated? Use Boxcar to subscribe to their feeds, and we'll send you a message when new posts are made. Get Boxcar now, and you'll never be the last one to comment.
