So I’m just thinking. Wouldn’t this be a great thing to have like the Octoprint app? Personally when I used octoprint I liked having an app for it instead of looking it up. Is that on a list of things astroprint is going to do or will an astroprint app not come?
Yup. I agree. Great idea. Also, it’s “in the plans”. No ETA though.

Although, The AstroPrint dashboard pretty much looks like an APP on the phone (minus features like push notifications etc… of course).
Stay tuned @Ethan
One thing that wouldn’t be hard to implement would be Chrome notifications. I know Facebook and gmail has used this (and many more, I’m sure) to notify people in the corner of their desktop, or as a push notification on mobile. Heres a link to the API: https://developer.chrome.com/apps/notifications
I have gone through the documentation, and it doesn’t look that complicated to put in for Astroprint, heres a link to a JSFiddle of it in action: https://jsfiddle.net/shootingcharlie8/d3bm9o5L/
