Mavericks Push Notifications

by Ben Ubois

OS X Mavericks was released on Tuesday and it has a cool feature that allows websites to send push notifications to your Mac.

Feedbin can now take advantage of this by offering push notifications for new articles.

To set it up you will need to be using Safari 7 on Mavericks. Then visit the Feeds page under Settings and there will be an option to enable push notifications. Click that and choose to allow Feedbin to send push notification in the resulting pop-up.

Next you will need to select which feeds you want to enable push for in the Feed Settings list. It’s a per-feed setting because enabling this for all feeds would be overwhelming.

Clicking on a notification will open up the original article and mark the article as read in Feedbin.
