Many developers have asked if they can use Pushpad for sending push notifications to their hybrid mobile apps. Basically they want to use the W3C Push API inside a WebView. That would make sense, because a WebView is a sort of browser embedded inside an application.
This tutorial explains how to add web push notifications to a domain and to all its subdomains using Pushpad.
Is it possible to transfer web push subscriptions to a different domain / web push service?
We’re happy to announce that Pushpad now supports VAPID (Voluntary Application Server Identification for Web Push).
Today we have deployed a new version of Pushpad which improves deliverability of push notifications and make it easier to find and debug any delivery failure.
The working draft of the Push API currently doesn’t offer a good way to manage unsubscriptions.
The problems arise in the following scenarios:
- The user blocks the notifications from the browser preferences
- The endpoint is replaced because it has expired
