I am developing an app that is currently in private beta, and I am currently using parse for push notificaitons, I would love to switch to ionic’s new push notification service, but I have several questions.
Is the service currently reliable? If I move to public beta in 1-2 months, will I be fine?
What is the relationship between ionic push notifications and $cordovaPush?
I know that websockets allow for real-time 2-way communication, but how is this used? Specifically, it seems that angular-websockets would only run when the app itself is running. What am I missing?
Can I write logic that modifies a notification when a user is actually running the app? For example, my app has a chat component, and users get notifications when they get a new message. However, if they are currently in the chat view, I don’t wan’t them to get a push notification.
Thanks for helping to clarify my understanding!
