As a Mobile Software Consultant, I'm always on the lookout for services and products that help me meet the needs of my clients.
One such service that has helped me with multiple clients is PushWoosh because of its simplicity and affordability. The value my clients have received from this service far outweighs the cost and the ease of use has allowed me to spend less time implementing push notifications so that I can focus on the core business concerns.
What’s nice about Pushwoosh is they have a free offering with basic push features to get you started and their service applies to multiple platforms in general as well as offering plugins and samples for PhoneGap applications targeting iOS, Android, and Windows Phone 7. I noticed there also appears to be a plugin available and supported with PhoneGap Build. With all the PhoneGap support it seemed like a great service to blog about in addition to my recent push notification posts.
I was very impressed with the support I received while trying out this service. They were quick to respond with meaningful information and went out of their way to add some additional code to aid in some specific testing I was doing to try out their geozones offering which I will be posting about specifically next.
As soon as I heard about Apple's new Safari push notifications on OS X Mavericks, I got excited to offer it to our readers at MacMagazine.com.br. However, looking into the details I became worried as it wasn't as simple as I previously imagined.
Then, I found out about Pushwoosh and by that time they had already published a quick tutorial for everyone to easily deploy Safari's notifications via their service. It worked like a charm for us and we even received a personalized support service while the Pushwoosh team updated their WordPress plugin.
I'm very satisfied with the service! Congrats, guys! ;-)
