    You missed these key notifications.

    Owners will now be notified when:
    - There's a software update available for install
    - The software update has installed successfully or has failed


    Some the iThingy users have had for a long time.

    The new app has these under a new screen that is launched by pressing the Notifications menu item under the upper left menu.

    How do you get these notifications? Via text or within the App? Do you have to keep the App running?

    Push notification (pop up from the top) like when you get a mail. No need to let the app open.

    One the one hand, it's about time. On the other hand, I wish we had a comment email address for the dev team so I can thank them for finally getting this feature out. Looks like we can check that one off our list for software improvements.
