iOS Update: More Snitch Details

Version 2.2.0 of the Dead Man's Snitch iOS app is now available for download. The latest version is aimed at making it much easier for you to see what exactly is going on with your job, just like you would if you logged into your dashboard at

When viewing snitches on your iOS device, you can now tap on an individual snitch to get a more detailed breakdown. You are now able to view recent history, tags, notes, and messages that were sent with a check-in. With these added details, if something does go wrong with a job, you'll be able to react faster.

In order to make the experience between the app and the website much more seamless, we've updated the icons as well. Another thing we did is fix a bug revolving around error handling. Previously, if there was a network or HTTP error, the app would hang on the loading screen and never display anything. With new error handling, you now know what exactly went wrong.

If you haven't updated to the newest version of Dead Man's Snitch for iOS yet, head on over to the App Store today.

Happy Snitching!

New Intervals + UI Facelift

15 & 30 Minute Intervals

We’re excited to announce that your #1 most requested feature, 15 and 30 minute intervals, are now live! Monitoring tasks that run multiples times per hour is now easier than ever. You’ll also receive alerts up to 4x faster than before—Enjoy!

UI Facelift

The dashboard needed some love. We redesigned your dashboard to make it even easier (and faster) to manage your snitches. It doesn’t stop here, though. We’ll be introducing new features and functionality in the near future. Stay tuned!

iPhone App

We carried the new UI into our beloved iPhone app. Push notification alerts are available if email alerts aren’t enough! The app is free to download here.

iOS App Release & Updates

Exciting things are happening with Dead Man’s Snitch!

We have rolled out some great new features for Dead Man’s Snitch (DMS). Please take a moment and let us walk you through what we’ve been up to. We think you will appreciate what we have done.

iPhone App Available Now

Users can now download the DMS app to conveniently monitor their Snitches from their iPhone. The app will allow users to get alerts quickly and conveniently when their processes aren’t reporting back to DMS. Download the app here

Email Subject Line Alerts

New email subject line prefixes make viewing your Snitch alert emails faster and easier. The terms, [MISSING] and [REPORTING], will be displayed at the beginning of your email based on whether or not your processes are running.

New Logo & Visual Improvements

We are proud to finally roll out a logo for Dead Man’s Snitch. Up until now we relied on our status LED to represent us. We knew it was time to put a face on DMS and that is why we made a logo.

Additionally we have improved the appearance of UI elements in the web app to be in line with our new iPhone app. Updates will continue to be released as we enhance the functionality and user-experience of Dead Man’s Snitch.

Stay tuned & happy snitching!
