automatic Notifications RRS feed

    Everybody knows how notifications work: they pop up when you press a button or something similar. What I want is a notification that shows a message even if the app is not running. Is that possible?

    Thanks in advance.

    Sorry for late comment, but @MikeCodesDotNet answer was the correct one. I couldn't distinguish between Push Notifications and just Notifications

    Hi,

    It sounds like you want to use Push Notifications, which are pretty common for mobile apps.

    If you're looking for a backend service to allow you to quickly get started then I'd recommend checking out Microsofts Azure Notification Hub

    All the best, Mike J

    Hello, Mike

    I was actually talking about this: https://developer.xamarin.com/guides/cross-platform/applicationfundamentals/notifications/android/localnotificationsinandroid/

    So I'm not sure if your answer fits in what I'm looking for...
