Generally the push messaging channel is used to bring users back to your app with timely, relevant communication. However, there are some use cases, such as time-limited deals where you don’t want to run the risk of anyone either being left out just because they were in the app at the time it was announced, or critical info that all your users need no matter what. We have added support for so-called foregound notifications.
For you this is just a simple toggle in the UI and will work with your entire Android user base and any iOS users who have already embraced iOS 10 as soon as you have updated to the latest 3.6 version of our mobile SDK.
A foreground notification can be a very useful tool to ensure maximum reach for your messaging, if you’re already on the latest version of the SDK you can start using it today, of not, it’s just another in a long list of reasons to update.
