Here is a nifty little tool to help developers test GCM notifications. While developing GCM or Google Cloud Messaging Notifications in Android applications, it is important to have a simple server to test if client code is working correctly. This free GCM notifications test tool below does exactly that – allows you to easily send GCM notifications to your Android client without needing to code out the server side code.
Instructions for using the GCM Notifications Test Tool
Enter the API Key and the GCM ID of the client that you want to the send the test notification to.
Enter the data for the notifications. You can enter this as key-value pairs. If you are using sample code, your default key is probably ‘message’ (enter this in the Key 1 box) and you can enter ‘hello world’ in the value field (enter this in the Value 1 box).
