I am slowly moving to LineageOS on my personal phone. The most important features I use on that phone are Email, Messaging, Mapping, and Alerts. I have found decent alternatives for Email, Messaging, and Mapping. Alerts or Notifications are something I depend on a lot; currently, they are Google or Apple features. I could settle down for pulls (I get a few alerts by way of RSS feeds), but push would be great. Especially for alerts from my home or servers. Hence was looking for it. NTFY suited my needs from all angles. Therefore I took some time to deploy it.

I use a service called The Lounge. It’s a web application that you install on any server (usually a cloud server). It does the same thing, but it is under your control. It’s FOSS software. In my case, I have installed it on my local NAS – Synology.
