We are happy to release the brand new Pushwoosh iOS SDK. New features, new possibilities, bug fixes and much more! Check the release notes below.

iOS10 Foreground Push Notifications

To enable out-of-the-box foreground pushes in iOS 10, make simple code changes:

[UNUserNotificationCenter currentNotificationCenter].delegate = [PushNotificationManager pushManager].notificationCenterDelegate;

Please note: you can either use Pushwoosh delegate to receive calls or make your own one.

Carthage Support

Pushwoosh now supports dynamic libraries and Carthage, a useful and simple distribution manager for dynamic frameworks. The platform is really intuitive and helps you easily add frameworks to your project.

Pushwoosh Module

Swift integration has never been so seamless! Check the updated guide. By the way, bridging header is not required anymore!

Say “Farewell” to Xcode 7

The new SDK is compatible only with Xcode 8. Please consider upgrading to the latest version of Xcode to use the new features of Pushwoosh iOS SDK.

2016 Pushwoosh Annual Giveaway

What’s the Point to Upgrade?

Let the digits speak for themselves. Let’s say you have a Marketing 3 paid monthly. It means it costs you $499.95 a month. You can buy annual subscription to pay $419.95 monthly. As can be shown by a little algebra, in that case you can save $960 per year. Fair enough, if you pay for a year in advance. We say: “Not Enough!” and offer you more this time.

By upgrading now, you can save 30% which is $1799.82 per year for Marketing 3. Not bad, right?

Furthermore, this is not only the 2017 is coming, but also a new business year. Usually, it means organizations try to book their business expenses before the end of the year and deduct from the taxes. Seems familiar to you? If it does, we offer you to get your wants and needs met easily.

Pushwoosh At Apps World London

Apps World London

In the middle of October, Pushwoosh attended Apps World London, the huge mobile congress for everything Mobile. The conference aimed to bring together leading technologies and companies looking for ways to maximize ROI from the use of either Native or Web Based Apps. All of the participants had the opportunity to speak, listen and learn about current trends and challenges within the industry and how these companies are looking to overcome specific hurdles. The agenda was at the forefront of addressing relative market Intelligence and information; including numerous presentations, workshops, pitchfork competitions, panel discussions and case studies.

As the leading digital platform for Mobile push notifications, Pushwoosh was fortunate to speak directly with the development community and get both insights and retrospective regarding numerous topics that are mission critical for the entire app industry. It also helped us realize what particular improvements are a must to continue leading the mobile engagement industry.

The conference provided the comfortable space for developers and business decision makers alike to discuss the most viable topics of the industry.

Below, is the list of talking points Pushwoosh team discussed with Apps World London attendees:

  • Engagement of ongoing and prospective customers
  • How to avoid over-communication and reduce negative experience
  • Ability for organizations to use, leverage and segment their own audience to make messaging and communications more impactful
  • How to integrate Pushwoosh into your product
  • How to keep pricing competitive in the market. Specifically, when the out of the box features are far beyond the industry average
  • New and emerging features to address a growing need for Mobile Push Notifications
  • Partnership opportunities with other leading technology companies to provide added value to Pushwoosh and Partner Clients alike
  • How to maintain the leading role in Digital Engagement
  • Why Timely Customer Support is extremely vital to any SaaS company, and for Pushwoosh clients in particular
  • Lessons learned from success stories within multiple industries like Professional Sports, Hospitality, Media, Retail etc.

To be more precise we would like to focus on two of the most important topics discussed at the Conference.

Apps World London

Segmentation

Segmentation alone and the ability to dive deep into one’s own data for high level and specified communications were consistently broached. Prior to years past, companies worried about trying to collect vital data across their businesses and today, the exposed challenge revolves around how to use this data in a systematic manner that provides competitive advantage to the organization. With Pushwoosh Segmentation features like Tags and Filters, companies can significantly boost their marketing marksmanship by building custom audience segments and address users with relevant and up-to-the-minute information. In summary, this simply means companies can provide relative content based on buying habits, trends, monetization, age etc. to the end users.

Apps World London

Customer Success

Today, organizations face the challenge of requiring real time assistance and communication from their service providers. At Pushwoosh, we identify and fully comprehend this very need by reaffirming the Pushwoosh commitment to provide the highest level of Customer Service within the industry. In order to attain this goal, we assign a personal Customer Success Manager to our Enterprise Tiered Clients. Not only will our Enterprise Clients receive an assigned CSM, they will also receive a team of Technical Support Managers to address situations in real time. This reduces response time, allows the same individual within Pushwoosh to become deeply engrained within the client’s strategies, requirements and goals. In turn, this provides efficient resolve for anything the client requires. We sincerely believe in win-win cooperation and have already garnered excitement and interest from prospects and current clients alike by providing such a high level of service.

Special Thanks

We would like to thank our team for the great job they did representing Pushwoosh at Apps World London. Thank you, guys, you’re the best!
