The best one.
This is by far the best push notification app in the store, and I've tried 4 or 5 others. Highly configurable, and always works great. UPDATE: It WAS working great until I upgraded to iOS5. Now it doesn't send me push notifs anymore (and yes, I have them enabled in the Notifications area)

No volume control
The app does work as advertised, however, there is no way to control the volume of the notifications. Unless I completely mute my iPhone, notifications chine at full blast. Super annoying! To be fair, I believe this a iPhone programming limitation not the app itself. Most importantly, it is critical for the developer to mention that emails must be forwarded to their servers for this to work. I find that a bit deceptive. I would have not bought the app if I knew before hand.

It works PERFECTLY with Different Email Tones not just ONE !
I downloaded this so I could assign different email tones to my corporate emails since Apple cannot seem to do this. You have to forward a copy of your Corporate email to the Mailtones email address that this app will give you. My company uses Microsoft Outlook so in there I created a RULE to redirectemail to the Mailtones email address. In Mailtones i set an email Alarm for VERY important emails and a quieter alert tone for regular email. THIS PROGRAM WORKS GREAT! THANKS MAILTONES for doing something Apple doesnt seem to consider being an important tool !!!

What you Need to Know Before you Buy
What they don't tell you before you purchase this app is that the program to provide you with custom rigntones is NOT resident on your IPhone. The way the program accomplishes this is that all of your e-mail is forwarded to a shadow server that sorts your e-mail, categorizes it, then forwards it back to you with the appropriate custom ring tone. They provide a disclaimer that they don;t keep any copies of your e-mail but the fact that my e-mail was being duplicated and forwarded was enough to make me decide that I didn't need it.
