Looking for testers for Status, an app for updown.io

I’m looking for some brave people to try out my other app called Status. It’s an app that you can use for updown.io. It’s in a “pre-alpha” at the moment and has still a way to go. iOS only at the moment. Interested? status@vincentritter.com.

When I say “pre-alpha” I mean exactly that. This is what works:

  • Login with both read-only and full access tokens.
  • See all your checks.
  • See any checks that are down.
  • Webhooks can be seen also.
  • You can view all the updown nodes.
  • You can register for push notifications, so the app notifies you when something goes down. More on this in a moment.
  • You can enable and disable checks.
  • Very basic check detail screen. This one is going to take some time.

Regarding push notifications: this will register a unique device token on a small API that I wrote, which in turn creates a webhook at the updown end. This is all happening in-app and no updown token or any other personal info is shared with my API. Once updown sees a site down, it will send the details to the Status API, which in turns sends out a nice push notification.

It’s been working well the past few times.
