With increasing numbers of devices per user, data delivery and annoyance problems arise from sending real-time or near real-time application push notification messages to all these devices. This paper presents a push notification service approach that is based on a user-centric viewpoint to deliver notification messages to the right device at the right time. The approach increases the chances of a user to timely respond to a notification without annoyance. As side benefit, the overload on the server side can be significantly reduced in terms of minimizing unnecessary duplicate notification messages sent to an individual user's multiplicity of devices. We exemplarily discuss a prototypical implementation based on cross-platform web technologies that can be readily implemented.
