UppSite - The "Push notification" for blogs

I can certainly see the advantage of "Uppsite", the push notification centre for all web based blog and forum owners.
It can be extremely difficult to get users to repeatedly come back to your site to view your "latest and greatest content" and with the increased proliferation of mobile browsing as a main source of online consumption for some people, I think this idea will help bridge the gap between, app development for multiple mobile platforms and HTML 5, mobile friendly integration (app.ft.com) as well as servicing your online media.

This service is completely editable (notification visuals and intrusion level) and looks to be being developed to sit in all native mobile platforms.

Uppsite will be adding the service as an ad support revenue model with a premium (ads free) model coming shortly. This could prove extremely useful when dealing with external clients requesting, deep mobile integration on a tiny budget, with minimal subsequent support required.
