How can I test push notifications in IOS 5? I have tried by clicking "Notify" next to the issue with a non subscribed user, but I don't get a badge or anything. Is there anything special I have to do?
Newsstand or non-Newsstand? With Newsstand, push notifications trigger a background download but not a red badge. With non-Newsstand apps, I don't believe it's possible to test push notifications in the sandbox environment.
I've gone through the above process to test my app in newsstand (with a fake iTunes user) but had to make some changes to the app and regenerate a new .ipa file. This means I'll need to verify my free subscription is properly working again. Regardless of what I do, I do not get the option to view the app in it's original state that allows me to go through the one time mock subscription process. I've tried signing back out of my app store/iTunes test account then back in (via iPad settings/App Store/Sign in) but each time I resync the provisioned iPad and launch the app it won't let me go back to through the subscription process/options. Is there a way to reset this or is it possible when going through the process to regenerate a new .ipa file with new certificates, etc I changed a setting that no longer honors the free subscription?
