@DKDigitally The Unification apps for all platforms will be going live sometime next week, and all apps are ready! You’ll see! ☻
This is something that the guys over at Liquid Daffodil have been working on for quite a while now.
Think service rather than application. The basic premise is that the service provides an encrypted, cross-platform notification (toasts and tile updates) service for Windows and Windows Phone, based on the Azure cloud. The service requires app developers to opt in, but will provide a cross platform notifications from apps on Windows Phone 7, 8 and Windows 8.
When the apps release users will be able to download the Unification app across a number of platforms enabling synchronised notifications across windows devices by authenticating with a Microsoft Account. The plan is to offer a seamless experience.
Once fully up and running this service will fill a sizeable gap in the current Windows and Windows Phone offering, which has been long requested by users. A short while ago Windows Phone Hacker offered a similar service, but it sadly failed the Microsoft approval process, releasing for a day and then disappearing from the store.
We look forward to seeing how well it works and hope that developer adoption has been high.
