Local notifications (i.e. offline notifications)

Hey rtm :P
I think It would be a good idea to make push notifications available while the wi-fi is off.
I have an ipod touch but I can't have the wi-fi on all the time so I get all notifications when I turn it on to sync... But sometimes I need to get a notification but I don't get it 'cause wi-fi is off...

well... that's all :)

How would one receive notifications, pushed from a central server, without a network connection to the central server?

This can be done (if all tasks are on your iDevice); it's a new iOS4 feature:

"Local notifications - Your app can now alert users of scheduled events and alarms in the background, no servers required."

PS: with "can be done" I mean "RTM could implement this"...

Wow. I wish more developers would implement this. While I have wifi at work, they firewall the port Apple uses for notifications, so I never receive any alerts there. This is a great feature, and I very much appreciate your bringing it to my attention. Here's hoping Bob can add this to the post-iPad list, as this would be great.

Now that I am this much more dependent on the terrific iPad app, I am all the more excited about this idea.

Please implent this. Especially with iOS5, the Reminders app has this ability and it's making me split up my tasks! I really want to keep RTM as my main todo-list program but I need notifications!

Pretty please?

I agree with this. Now I am starting to rely more and more on RTM to get things done, this feature would be very handy

Native iOS reminders in RTM would also solve another problem. Currently, if you travel to a different time zone, RTM reminders will be offset by the number of hours different from your home time zone.
