The best mobile applications don’t live in a vacuum. They are augmented by dedicated servers, the Internet and Cloud services. While it’s one thing to reach out to server-side services from a mobile application, it’s a completely different affair when the tables are turned and the server needs to reach the phone. Enter push notifications. From iOS to Android, Windows Phone and Windows 8, discover how to send push notifications from cloud-hosted services to a mobile app running on a tablet or phone, and learn how to handle those alerts in your mobile app. We’ll discuss the various push notification services from Microsoft, Apple and Google, how to leverage them in your mobile applications, how to deal with push scenarios for any given multi-platform app, and we’ll also look at Notification Hubs that can let you push millions of notifications with just a few lines of code. The live demo showcases a real-world app designed for Windows Phone, Windows, iOS and Android with a common cloud backend built with Node.js.
