    This may sound stupid, but I don't really understand how Push works and what it does... Can somebody explain it to me?

    edit: I think I can assume that after 6 people have looked at this post and not commented, that I am not the only one who does not really know what Push really does.

    Information/data from a server gets pushed to your device automatically without you having to open the app and check manually.

    push basically orevents you from constantly going back to an app to check whether anything new has happened - i.e. an IM app or facebook.

    It would also work like with an olnine game, so if soembody challenges you, a notice will appear on your screen, without you going to the Game itsself.

    Bottom line: Push allows you to recieve data without you having to go into the app.

    Very good stuff, but Apple seems to be a little scared to release IMing apps with Push on the App Store.

    They think their servers can't handle it, or something like that.

    Hopefully they allow all of the new updates soon.

    That's exactly what I'm waiting for too.

    But as I said, Apple isn't releasing ANY IMing apps right now that'll use Push.
    They think the server won't be able to handle all of the traffic created.
