Devs begin testing iPhone push notifications in AP News app

As Apple fans around the world eagerly await WWDC, a new iPhone model and perhaps most importantly iPhone OS 3.0, developers just got the call they’ve been waiting for. During the course of the next seven days, various devs will be testing iPhone OS push notifications in the upcoming version of the AP News app. As you can see in the screen capture above, each app can have Sounds, Alerts and Badge notifications toggled individually. Want an audio alert for new IM messages but only a badge for new @replies in your favorite Twitter app? No problem. We can’t say we’re overly fond of the notifications menu placement within the settings app as opposed to within each individual app, but at least it’s something. Hit the jump for two more screenshots.

Thanks, Clifton!
