push messages in background


I use right now, but am looking to moving to Kumulos. Pusher only seems to send messages when the app is in the foreground, which really isn't all that helpful. Can I send push messages in Kumulos regardless of if an app is in the foreground or background?




  • Hi there,

    Yes, absolutely. Pusher is a pub/sub framework and so the messages may only appear when the app is in the foreground. Kumulos sends native push notifications via APNS (Apple Push Notification System) for iOS devices and GCM (Google Cloud Messaging) for Android devices and so (assuming the user has permitted the app to subscribe for push notification messages) the notification will be received whether the app is in the foreground or background.

    Hope this helps.
