Has anyone tried using text notifications as an alternative to push notifications?
I am evaluating bubble for a social app and some form of instant notification on mobile is mandatory for several features. Since web app notifications are unsupported by Apple on iOS and wrapping a web app in a native app is complex I am trying to find some creative workarounds.
The former would take some integration work and there are per message costs. The latter takes a little more work on the users part and I have noticed by using this in another app that the text messages come from a unique number each time (no threads) and get flagged on my Android phone as potential spam all the time . Yuk.
Anybody else think about this?
