Big news coming next week!

We have been a little understaffed over the past few weeks with some well earned PTO, some unforutnate (but not serious) sick leave, and sooner than expected paternity leave quite. However, things have still been ticking over and we annoucned big new coming soon over on Reddit at the start of Summer and we wanted to lay the ground work for a big announcement next week.

We have shipped a Bug fix (Chrome Build 1.0.15) that should have fixed a handful of issues. We still working on a Firefox issue with uploading, not a bug per se, but functionality we never added (due to technical reasons / limiations in the first version of the Firefox Addon) but soemthing we should have added from Day 1. iOS got a update last week to fix an annoying issue with the Share Extention that has been around for a while.

Anyway, bigger news next week and hopfully we will have a Firefox update before then.

Enjoy the rest of the week!

Moving Out Of Beta

As many of you know Now Push had been in beta since late spring / early summer last year. Over that time we grew from just available on mobile to Chrome and then Firefox applications, we added several new features and expanded to hundreds of users. We reached out to many of our early users to gather feedback and see what they thought about Now Push’s earliest versions. 

As many of you will probably also know, this beta period finally came to an end two weeks ago. We are now generally available on App Store, Play Store, Chrome Web Store, Firefox Add-on store, and more to come. 

These first two weeks have seen some significant growth in our platform, with over 4k impressions on the Apple App Store, we have grown our users to over 1.4k, 1.1k monthly active users, we hit 250 daily active users, over 3k visitors to our website and we have a truly global user base with some of our biggest amount of users sessions and website traffic coming from the US, Canada, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Egypt, India, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Germany and our home country of Belgium.

This real “version one” release contained several new features, bug fixes, and we also introduced our subscription plan. Our “Now Push Pro” subscription plan has been introduced alongside our very generous “free tier” to allow us to build a sustainable business, to make sure Now Push can exist for a long time, and to allow us to invest further in the product and service we provide. This does not mean we will not invest in or look to further limit or restrict our free tier. We will always offer a generous free tier of Now Push, with no exceptions.

Our goal is to become the best cross-device sharing experience bar none, we are just getting started.

Version One includes:

– Threads

– Private Threads

– Universal Copy / Paste

– File Uploads

– Reminder Notifications

– Pro Subscription

We would like to thank each user that has been part of the journey so far and we would love you to continue on it with us. Please keep your eyes open for another post late this weekend or early next week. This post will introduce one of our new features “Universal Copy / Paste,” and we plan to do these types of updates more often going forward. We also have plans to reach out to all our users for another follow-up survey to get some first-hand insight into how you all see Now Push.

Lastly, our 50% discount period, for Now Push Pro has been extended for another few days to allow all of you to share this offer with family and friends to continue to grow Now Push.

So please share the code NOWPUSHBETA with your family, friends, and colleagues (also yourself if you have not signed up, for Now Push Pro). Anyone with that code will be able to get a 50% discount on Now Push Pro. This is a limited offer. Go to https://www.pro.nowpush.app to get the 50% off for life! Offer ends

firefox now push update

Introducing Now Push for Firefox

You can “Now Push” to Firefox from iOS, Android, or Google Chrome/Microsoft Edge. It’s super simple, super-fast, and is just the latest step in building out our core applications!

You can find the Firefox extension here and visit the Now Push website for all our beta links (links will also be posted at the bottom of this post).

This is the next step is Now Push making it easy to share things between your mobile devices, between Android, iOS, and iPadOS, and now we support 3 major browsers!

What can I push to Firefox?

You can push anything to Firefox that you’re already able to push to the mobile apps or the Chrome/Edge extension. Getting a website link, a tweet, a text quote, a reminder, a to-do list, or even pictures onto your computer is now simple, secure, and just takes a second to share.

So how does pushing to Firefox work?

Anything you push to Firefox from the Push Tab will show up instantly as a notification (be sure to allow notifications in settings). These behave just like the mobile notifications: links open a new tab to that website, text can be copied and pasted on your computer, and pictures show up in the Firefox Extension and can be downloaded effortlessly.

After you’ve dismissed the notification, you can still access all of your pushes in the Push Tab of the Firefox extension. This makes it easy to find anything you’ve already pushed before downloading the Firefox extension.

Now Push with our Firefox extension along with our Chrome extension is the fastest and easiest way of getting anything from your phone onto your computer.

No more email attachments to yourself, no waiting for photo apps to sync or any other nonsense, Now Push to the device you want, when you need it!

Right now, the Firefox extension, as with our Chrome extension only supports the Push Tab (to be clear this means this version doesn’t support Friends or Threads) but we will bring all these feature parity with the mobile apps very soon.

Shipping soon?

We are hard at work getting ready to release:

  • Fixes to the Chrome extension to fix issues with Microsoft Edge browser and Opera browser
  • Share Extension fixes on iOS
  • Better support offline in the Friends Tab
  • Siri Shortcut functionality on iOS
  • Various bug fixes and improvements

Shipping a bit later…

We’ve been working hard to bring some big update in our next release:

  • Delete previously sent Pushes on mobile
  • Allow pushes to be directed to specific devices
  • Apple Sign in
  • General quality, performance, and reliability improvements

Got some feedback? A feature request? A Bug to report? Getting in touch with us is easy your can email us support@nowpush.app, tweet us @nowpushapp or join our already active community on reddit r/nowpush and just leave a post. Regardless of how you want to connect with us, one of the team will get back to you.

Introducing Now Push for Chrome

You can “Now Push” to Chrome from iOS or Android. It’s super simple, super-fast, and is the first step in giving Now Push superpowers!

Make sure you’ve got the latest version of the Chrome extension here!

I know you all have been wanting and waiting for this since the mobile beta dropped, we fought some strict gatekeeping from Google. We then waited, responded to Google, waited some more, and now we have finally met all the criteria made it to the Chrome Web Store!

So far, Now Push made it easy to share things between your mobile devices, between Android, iOS, and iPadOS. Now, we’ve made it just as easy to get things shared across to your Laptop or Desktop.

What can I push to Chrome?

You can push anything to Chrome that you’re already able to push to the mobile apps. Getting a website link, a tweet, a text quote, a reminder, a to-do list, or even pictures onto your computer is now simple, secure, and just takes a second to share.

These behave just like the mobile notifications: links open a new tab to that website, text can be copied and pasted on your computer, and pictures show up in the Chrome Extension and can be downloaded effortlessly.

No more email attachments to yourself, no waiting for photo apps to sync or any other nonsense, Now Push to the device you want, when you need it!

Right now, the Chrome Extension only supports the Push Tab (so the early version doesn’t support Friends or Threads) but we will bring full parity with the mobile apps very soon, we also only have full support with Chrome, however, in the next update we will also be supporting Chrome Extensions for the Microsoft Edge browser and we will also be compatible with the Chrome Extension add-on for the Opera browser.

What else is new in beta-land?

We shipped build number 13 of our mobile beta version 1.0.0 along with the Chrome Extension, and that included:

  • End to End Encryption by default
