Recently wrapped up an Ionic app for a client that needed local notifications. At first glance it seemed trivial, but as I dug deeper I found some mysterious behavior. Here in part one I cover how to get large and small icons to display properly on Android (if you ever get the dreaded bell icon or small square, this is for you), as well as how to get local notifications to work on iOS 10.
Part 2 will be a deeper dive into how I was able to use local notifications to let users select a time and what days of the week they’d like a notification, and getting those reminders to repeat each week at the exact day and time chosen.
If you want to know anything else about local notifications let me know and I’ll do another part.
