Tap Tap Revenge is a music game similar to Harmonix’s Guitar Hero or Konami’s Dance Dance Revolution. A recent update to the second iteration of the title, Tap Tap Revenge 2, now includes support for Push Notifications
, making it the first reported iPhone app to benefit from the much-awaited feature.
Tap Tap Revenge 2 is an improved version of Tap Tap Revenge. The new title features a completely new gaming engine with awesome new graphics and effects, for a more immersive 3D experience. On higher levels, developer Gogo Apps has introduced “Tap & Hold” and “Multi-Tap” features that make the game even more fun.
However, an update to the new Tap Tap 2 delivers even more functionality, even when you’re not playing. On Apple’s iTunes App Store, Tap Tap Revenge 2 version 2.6 is listed
as “iPhone OS 3.0 Tested.” The changelog also includes an intriguing account – push notifications! What’s new in this version
– Support for Push Notifications on iPhone OS 3! Tap Tap’s icon on the Springboard will be badged with an unread count for new feed items. SMS-style alerts will arrive when you’re challenged to a game by your friends.
– New interface for sending a challenge to your friends, or creating a Batlle. Choose from a list of Tapulous friends, or send email to others.
Users of MobileMe, Microsoft Exchange, and Yahoo! Mail, services known as “push” accounts, should be aware of how the technology works, but let’s make sure everyone is on the same level and explain it by contrast with “fetch.” Basically, when new information is available, such as the arrival of an email message, it is automatically delivered (pushed) to the iPhone. Fetch, on the other hand, requires one's email client to periodically check with their service provider to see if new messages have arrived, and then request them to be delivered. In the case of Tap Tap Revenge 2, push will be used to notify users of new content, or new challenges. Download Tap Tap Revenge 2 via iTunes (Free)
