Is this supported? If Android or iOS puts my app to sleep will OneSignal notifications still come through? I searched before asking but couldn’t find the answer on cross platform.
these will still come through. sometimes they come through delayed but they still come!
Grateful for the lightning fast reply. If they come through does that mean the entire app wakes up in the background?
hmm… I’m not totally sure about that. I don’t think so. I’m not fully aware of the architecture behind how push notifications work, but to my knowledge the app doesn’t have to be on at all.
i think one important part when you publish would be to let users know they should leave on notifications so that they don’t miss any important updates. I often deny notifications because i don’t realize what they may have to offer.
I think I found the answer with more digging. The app does not appear to wake but OneSignal’s part of the program does. Push notifications must be sent, I am pretty sure, via a script running on some server, or by a human. Not from within the Thunkable app.
I think that android and ios phones have push messaging capabilities built in. seems almost like a native function. not a function added by the app you build.
