A push notification is a message that you can “push” or send to those with your app that will appear as an alert on their iPhone. The push notification shows up as a red circle badge on your app’s launch icon. Then once opened, within your app the app module the push notification is associated with also displays the same alert badge.

The important thing to note about push notifications and push-enabled app modules is that they are what enable your app as a real-time marketing platform to send deals, offers or coupons to your customers.

To send push notifications you must have one of these modules in your app:

  • Messages
  • Deals
  • Specials
