Push Analytics A very useful feature that can track:  How many Push Notifications were sent from your side  How many were delivered, and  Push Notification Campaign How many users opened the message 31% 100% Sent Delivered Opened These analytics can be viewed from our AppHQ console. 74% Why Push Analytics? When you use our Push Notification Service, each Push goes from the App42 server to GCM/APNS/MPNS and then to the user device. • Delivery of Push Notification is not guaranteed even from the service provider • Once delivered, there might be a chance that user just clears it without opening the message Thus, Analytics gives you a better insight of your Push Notification campaign.
