    Hi — I’m looking to develop an app with Qt Quick and C++ for mobile devices.

    From a discussion on the forums there, it looks like there’s no support for push notifications, such as the ones you get when GMail has a new email for you, or that news apps ping you with when there’s a breaking story.

    Push notifications (if that’s the right term for them) would be an integral part of the app I want to develop, and would be pretty much the primary desired functionality.

    Someone there suggested I head over here to see if you offer something that might fit the bill.

    What we’d initially be after would be a notification to users when they’ve made a sale.

    Is that sort of functionality something that’s available from yourselves, and if it is, what would it cost?

    Sorry if this is a total n00b question, but I pretty much am a total n00b with Qt.

    Hi Doug!

    Starting wit our indie plan, you can use V-Play Plugins for integration of analytics, social services, monetization and also push notifications.

    We offer different plugins for server-triggered notifications (e.g. Google Cloud Messaging, One Signal or Parse) and Local Notifications. Local Notifications let you schedule time-based notifications locally on the device. For notifying users when a sale happened, I guess the server-triggered notifications are what you are looking for. The backend is then provided by GCM / One Signal / Parse and used to trigger push notifications for your app.

    Ah, brilliant, so it’s do-able!

    I guess our backend app would integrate with GCM or One Signal or Parse (are they three different options?) and push a notification to them, and they’d relay the notification on to the relevant users’ mobile apps?

    Thanks again for your reply!

    Yes – exactly. They are different push notification services, for which we provide easy-to-use integration in your cross-platform QML-based app.

    You can then manually trigger notifications from your account on their website or use their API to trigger them when needed.
    Have a look at, e.g. our One Signal Plugin documentation to see how to send notifications with curl over the One Signal API.

    I’m sure our V-Play Apps QML components may also help you to save some development time, you can have a look at our App Examples & Demos to see how it works.

    Hope this helps!

    Best,
    Günther
