About this app

Send push notifications to your phone from any Bash or PowerShell script, or from your own app using PUT/POST requests, e.g. via curl on Linux or Invoke-WebRequest.

ntfy is an Android client for https://ntfy.sh, a free and open source HTTP-based pub-sub service. You can subscribe to topics in this app, and then publish messages via a simple HTTP API.

* Notify yourself when a long-running process is done
* Ping your phone when a backup has failed
* Alerts when someone logs into your server


$ curl -d "Your backup is done" ntfy.sh/mytopic

This is, by far, the best app I've found to seamlessly send notifications to my phone from nearly anything, including Home Assistant, Node-RED, random shell scripts, healthchecks.io; anything that can publish to webhooks. It's fully open source; you can even host the server yourself. There are some minor limits with the free tier, but they are *very* reasonable (250 notifications/day), and only apply to the official instance.

Amazing project and fantastic app. Great pub/sub notification system. Well thought out and good docs. Thank you Philipp and wow following your comment I checked about the per subscription customisations which are fantastic. Unfortunately Android 13 only seems to let you allow an app in DND mode, its all or nothing. Would it be possible to have a simple schedule that only allows selected subscrtions to alert during a definable window? That works be icing on the cake :)

You can change the notification settings per subscription. Go to the topic detail screen, then "Subscription settings", and then enable "Custom notification settings". Then you can configure sounds, DND for this one subscription.

This app is excellent I haven't had one single problem I can allow my friends to send me a notification just through a link which is very cool however maybe a feature that could be added is like rate limit like how much notifications you can get in a specific time like 1 every 10 mins and it blocks all other requests until the cooldown is over

Thank you for the feedback. . You can in fact control the rate limiting logic if you self host your server. Here's a detailed section in the docs: https://ntfy.sh/docs/config/#rate-limiting

What's new

This release is mainly a platform and dependency upgrade release, sprinkled with lots and lots of bugfixes. This version now targets SDK 33 (Android 13), and brings a few Android 13 specific improvements. Most prominently, ntfy now supports thematic/adaptic launcher icons.

Other than that, the app now doesn't crash anymore when you send large attachment images, and we fixed the notification icon color.
