SEND GEO-BASED PUSH MESSAGES
A push message can now be sent to users in a specified country, region or place. This is called a Geo-based Push Message. Geo Push is different than Geofencing. Geo Push entails sending a push message to those users that have last opened the app within the location radius you have specified. In this way, the app is not constantly sending the location data from a user’s device. Our platform will only register the last known location. This saves precious battery life of the user’s phone.
Once your app has been updated with the correct settings, you can start using Geo-based Push Messages. In this example, we will send a push message to a specified location.
Log in to select the live app you’d like to send the push message to.
In the left vertical menu, select Push Message and click on the Add button
Write the text of your push message and select the time it should be sent from. Click Next.
In the next step you are shown two options, choose “Send to everyone near a location.”
Enter the address of your chosen location, and choose the radius around this location that the message should be sent to.
You can also choose how recently the users had to have been at that specified location for them to receive the push message. This can help you target the right audience.
Your app needs to be live (published) and recently updated. The last version of the app in both stores needs to have been published after May 1st. If your app is older than this and you would like to update it, please send us an email
A user’s location may not always be accurate. This often depends on the user and the device that is being targeted.
