Use DailyStory Push Notifications to send personalized and targeted messages to an iOS or Android app.
Push Notifications are useful for sending specific messages to people directly on their phone through an existing iOS or Android app.
This can include:
- Thank you messages
- Important notices
- Offers and discounts
DailyStory's Push Notifications support personalization and are sent individually to each contact. This is different from other broadcast Push Notification services which send the same message to all recipients.
Push Notifications are sent to contacts that opted in to receive push notifications on their iOS or Android device. Push Notification messages are only available to iOS and Android App(s). And, your iOS or Android App must also register the device id with DailyStory.
This guide provides a list of resources to help you get started with Push Notifications.
