Me too on Richard’s request. I think the livecode lesson is a good start, but yes, setting up the server is another issue entirely. Since you’ve been through this process, it would be very useful to hear which learning resources you found most useful.

Here are a couple of promising links I found by Googling around.

This youtube video looks quite promising. It shows how to set up a server and the push notifications are sent using a cron job. I would bet the php code could be easily modified to sent the notification from a command on an app or mobile device. <>

I don’t know what would be required for sending notifications to Android mobile devices.
