May 2020 – All WP-AppKit addons are now free and also available on github.
Mobile notifications are key to app’s engagement. It’s a great feature to offer to your users. It dramatically lowers the uninstall rate and keeps users returning to your app for new content. Unfortunatly, it is also a complex task to setup. The online platform Pushwoosh eases the process to get notifications for Android up and running. With Pushwoosh, you will be able to subscribe users and send Android notifications using a single tool.
Pushwoosh for WP-AppKit is an add-on that extends the WP-AppKit plugin to let you use Pushwoosh with your apps.
- Subscribe users to notifications on Android.
- Send notifications to Android users using the Pushwoosh platform.
- Deeplink support (ie. open an article with a notification).
Pushwoosh for WP-AppKit is fully documented.
Please note that the current version of this add-on does not provide a way to send notifications directly from WordPress when publishing or updating a post. Notifications are sent from the PushWoosh interface. If you need this feature, it can be achieved by using the PushWoosh WordPress plugin and slightly hacking into it (because unfortunately there’s no hook) to support sending notifications to mobile apps. Don’t hesitate to contact us for more information.
