Easy APNs Provider is a tool for apple developers who want to test whether Apple Push Notification Service works on their devices.
First you should make sure you have a APNs certificate file, name like aps_development.cer, which is requested on your Mac from Apple DEV center, and, of course, related with your app.
Make sure this certificate and the related private key have been installed in your keychain (If you applied the cert with your Mac, the private key and the cert should have been automatically installed).
Download this app.
Press Add Token to add the tokens of your devices which were given by app delegate.
Select your certificate file.
Choose APNs server. Domain with sandbox is for development and without sandbox is for production.
Connect to server.
Select what kind of payload you wanna push. You can write your own payload by clicking "Raw" tab button.
Push and wait for result. Were there an error, information of it shall appear in status field.
content-available key added in convenient payload constructor.

Great Utility app to test Push Notifications
I was having such hard time sending test push notifications from my Mac using Curl or some Python scripts. I was hitting open ssl issues.
This tool saved the day. Worked like a charm on first try.
Solid Little Utility
The app works as advertised and is relatively easy to get up and running. IMHO the user interface could use some tweaks. For example, it isn’t clear that a device name is required or that the device name is entered *after* the device token is added. It also wasn’t intuitive that the name, once entered, could not have spaces. I recommend this app to developers despite these few minor issues.
This app is such a time saver when it comes to testing push notifications on the APNs Sandbox and Produciton environments. Thanks for making this tool!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
