During the Flat6Labs Cycle 3 Demo Day, PushBots founder and CEO Amr Sobhy shares the story behind launching PushBots which helps mobile developers add a push notification ability to their apps using minimal resources.
Push notifications are the messages smartphone users receive automatically on their phones, notifying them of an event or announcement.
“Traditionally, developers will write the code to enable push notification ability within their apps, and will spend considerable time learning the different complex protocols and standards,” explains Sobhy. Push notifications are the messages smartphone users receive automatically on their phones, notifying them of an event or announcement.
“Now developers can deliver push notifications across all major mobile operating systems in a scalable, resource-efficient manner, without worrying about servers or infrastructure,” Sobhy adds. The service uses the freemium model, whereby a developer can have a certain number of notifications free per month and will then pay as their user base grows.
