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! ;-)
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.
Since we've been using Pushwoosh there have been 2 occasions where we have needed to get hold of their support team. Normally when dealing with international companies one sends a mail, yet we don't have much faith that our problems will be attended to. On both occasions where we required support assistance we were contacted by members of the Pushwoosh support team within a couple of hours and our issues were resolved. The efficient service did not however end there as we received follow up emails after everything had been resolved to ensure that our account was working correctly and that we were happy with what had been done.
We have been so impressed by the service offered by the Pushwoosh team. It's a pleasure to deal with them - nothing is ever too much hassle to sort out.
Thanks again to Dmitry and the Pushwoosh team for your ongoing incredible support.
