It took us just minutes! to integrate Pushwoosh API with our mobile apps' backend CMS, and that's because of their easy to follow API guidelines and -ready to deploy- examples that made us focus entirely into our frontend instead and let Pushwoosh do the rest.
The best part? there is a guide for almost every mobile platform out there so it's a MUST-HAVE solution for agile teams and faster development.
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.
Pushwoosh is just the solution we were looking for. What can I say, it does exactly what it says in the tin. It dropped straight into our game with no effort and now our game users send and receive notifications to and from each other. From HQ, we are also able send notifications to targeted users or groups of users.
It's really brought our game alive and improved retention enormously.
