Is there a way to ping your mobile if there is activity on your question or answer?

I think it would require a SE app. But bottom line is everything is more and more mobile/tablet/phablet. I normally try to hang around once I have posted something. But it could become moot to keep refreshing the page to see if I got any replies to a question.

Is it possible to get this feature?

    stackapps.com I'm sure there's something that will do what you want.

  • There is an SE Android app, but that is still in private beta. I would suspect that it offers this functionality Aug 28, 2013 at 16:56
  • maybe stackapps.com/q/2370 is of interest, I don't know whether it shows notifications though

On the stack exchange dropdown on the top left of every SE site, there's an option to get emailed when you have a new notification. Using this and an email app on your phone with push notifications enabled, you can kind of get the functionality you want.

Click the dropdown->Email Settings, enter an email address, change the email delay to 3 hours (the shortest time).

Its not instant, but its pretty close.


If you're only interested in a few questions' activity, the easiest way is probably checking it's RSS feed - just look at the bottom right above the footer:

where's the RSS button?
