Otaku no Podcast now supports Safari Push Notifications

Otaku no Podcast push notification bannerWell hello there! What? Yes, it has been a while, hasn’t it? Right. So things have been, shall we say, pretty crazy at the start of 2014 for me, and as such, I haven’t had a chance to produce any content for the site. And here, one of my New Years’ resolutions was to try and produce Otaku no Podcast content on a more regular schedule. I’m still going to try and do just that. Of course, podcasts take a lot of time and effort to produce and edit, so don’t expect those very often. Blog posts, on the other hand, are comparatively easy, and I will try and post them on a fairly regular basis. These could include Cool Finds that I stumble across while I wander the internet, or reviews of anime that I’ve just finished watching (yes, I am starting to write more reviews now) or various other random things.

“But how will I know when you have posted something new?” you may be asking yourself. Easy! You can keep an eye on our Twitter and Facebook statuses, as every time I post something new, those get automatically updated with information on the new post. And if you have the Otaku no Podcast app, you can choose to have it send you a push notification whenever a new podcast episode or blog post goes up. (And, before you say it, yes, I know, the app needs updating pretty badly, plus there still isn’t an Android app. Those are two things that I hope to fix soon.)

Well, if you happen to be a Mac user running OS X Mavericks and you use the Safari browser, you now have a third option. We have just added support for Safari Push Notifications. The next time you visit otakunopodcast.com you will see a popup (pictured above) asking you if you would like to subscribe to push notifications. Once you click “allow,” nothing else will appear different to you. But, the next time I publish a new podcast episode or blog post, you will receive a push notification announcing that glorious event, either as a banner that appears momentarily, or an alert that waits for you until you acknowledge it. (This setting can be changed in the Notifications panel in System Preferences.) Clicking on the push notification will instantly launch Safari, bringing you straight to the new podcast episode or blog post. Easy peasy.

We’ll only use this to announce new blog posts or podcast episodes — nothing more. And at any time you can choose to stop receiving these messages by going to Safari Preferences, and in the Notifications tab, click the “Deny” button next to Otaku no Podcast.
