Email notifications are somewhat annoying at the very least, IMO. I hate having to clean them out of my inbox. Also annoying is that they don't tell you when a game ends (that you didn't end yourself). The sound is a good idea, I think.
When the rhp app is released (whenever that may be), I will look forward to iOS notifications. In the meantime, a good alternative to emails would be tweets. Twitter feeds are inevitably cluttered, whereas email inboxes are best kept tidy.
