Push Notifications let you keep your application users engaged. You can drive the traffic to your application by delivering important updates, inform users about application state changes, initiate chat sessions, etc.

Backendless simplifies the process of delivering push notifications to all major mobile platforms (Android, iOS and Windows Phone) by offering a unified API that works the same way across all devices and mobile operating systems. Using the API, application developers can publish mobile Push Notifications which Backendless can deliver to the connected devices.

The API also includes support for targeted delivery where a message can be sent only to a subset of devices (grouped by OS or otherwise) or a specific device.
