Receive push notifications for iPhone / Android without a device, nor a "real" simulator

Push Notifications in Mavericks iOS Simulator: It seems you can use the iOS simulator to test push notifications, but I get it that you do not want to use a the simulator nor a device.

What you are asking for should not be allowed by Apple, as it means non-Apple devices would be allowed to register for push notifications. Per https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/documentation/NetworkingInternet/Conceptual/RemoteNotificationsPG/Chapters/ApplePushService.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP40008194-CH100-SW12, "APNs generates a device token using information contained in the unique device certificate. The device token contains an identifier of the device. It then encrypts the device token with a token key and returns it to the device." Thus, in order to create the desired token, you need a unique device certificate -- in other words, a real device or iOS 8 simulator. If you are trying to test on a single "device," perhaps you could forge one or copy from a real device, but I am sure that is against Apple's policies.
