According to Apple, Multitasking or running apps in the background causes security problems and it negatively impacts battery life so they introduced Push Notification System. A System which enable apps to notify users even when they are not running. For example, A chat application can now display the latest response from a conversation even when its not running. Here’s our top pick for the apps that can “Push” notifications:

WeatherAlert is a simple weather notification application that will display alerts for your area whenever there is a chance of rain, thunderstorms, tornadoes, floods etc. The latest version will “Push” the alert message to you without you having to run the application.
I would really like to see apps like Skype, Facebook, Tweetie(or any other twitter client) and any RSS Reader to get Push Notification System. Imagine the possibilities when Skype will be able to notify you of incoming call when it is not running? Free iPhone-iPhone calling over the WiFi anyone?
