send Push notification when a phone arrive to a specific point on the map!

Hello, I want to know if is possible to make an app to do this: when a user that has the app installed arrive, let's say for example, in a Mall to receive push notification with a specific message? Any help will be much appreciated! Thank you

"RD Simple Geofence" is exactly what I need, except the fact that uses local notifications and send the same message to all Geofence locations! I need to be able to change the message every day!

Oh, Apple may frown on advertising through push

Passbook is a built in app for iOS. Apps like starbucks use it for membership cards. You can take a look at www.Passk.it for more information -- Ed

yes, I know what it is. But how to use it to send push notifications for specific Geofence locations?

A pass can be encoded to be triggered when the phone crosses a geofence. Then it can show the "deal of the day". I found that to happen to me with the Slick Deals app. I think it was their app that showed me a Pass as I went past the Shopping Mall. -- Niraj
