Two weeks ago, Jeff Niles asked me whether my app development company would be interested in helping him propose to his now-fiancée (congratulations, Jeff and Diana!) as the two of them flew over the Statue of Liberty in a helicopter. No, we didn’t assist with the actual flying part—that feature is sadly absent from iOS 6. What we did contribute: A Push notification in our New York Travel Guide app, triggered by proximity to Liberty Island (and a few other tricks my developers had up their sleeves).
