Today we have updated Pushwoosh with the set of some sufficient improvements and new features.
Here’s what’s new this time:
Time-to-live parameter added for Android, iOS, Amazon, Mac OS X and Safari. It allows you to set the expiration period after which the notification will not be delivered to the device if it was offline when you just sent the message. Available in both Control Panel and API with separate parameters for each corresponding platform.
Separate payload counters for iOS, Mac OS X and Safari platforms, that consider all the additional platform-specific parameters (badges, custom sound, action button label, etc.) while calculating the number of characters you got left.
Custom sounds for native iOS and Android apps are as automated as possible now – latest Pushwoosh SDK lets us know about all the sound files in your build, and all you have to do is select the sound you want to use from the list. If you are not using the latest SDK yet, just input your sound file name manually in the Control Panel once, and it will be saved automatically after you send the push. Anyway, we recommend updating your apps with our latest SDKs.
No more confusion when it comes to time zones – now you can set the timezone in the Pushwoosh account details, and all time stamps (in Pushes history, Statistics, etc.) will be displayed in your local time.
Fixed the issue with API tokens and its restrictions – now all restrictions you change are set on Pushwoosh on-the-fly.
We are also glad to finally introduce the public support for BlackBerry 10 devices. Now we have integration guides for both HTML5 / Webworks and repackaged Android Runtime applications. You can find our BB10 Configuration and Integration guides here.
Besides, there are dozens of minor fixes and changes to improve your experience with Pushwoosh.
We are working on some new useful stuff such as:
- Periodic Pushes: the capability to set any frequency for the push message to be sent automatically;
- Dynamic Content: allows you to address pushes to your users in person, use various modifiers, and more;
- Geozone Clusters: group your Geozones in Clusters with its parent cool down period, edit existing Geozones, activate and disable them;
- Drupal module, RSS-feed notifications, new Statistics, Emoji support, new platforms, and other cool stuff.
Stay tuned for our next updates!
