A lot of app functionalities can run in the background. However, nowadays mobile devices still come with a limited amount of RAM. The working memory has to be shared with the operating system and other apps running on the device. Mobile devices also come with relatively small batteries. Performing actions in the background may reduce the battery time of these devices and could cause your app to look bad, because it shows up high in the list of battery consuming apps. So, when you run in the background, managing resources is important. This post will show you how to manage resources for background processes in iOS.

A new release today of our plugin as well as updates to our dashboard. One thing we’ve added is the segmentation based on user preferences, for instance, segment on people who have a certain brand as one of their favorites.

We’ve been working on two important features and we’re happy to announce they are now available. The first feature focuses on getting a list of the previously sent notifications and geotriggers from the plugin. The second feature is Xamarin support.

It delivers notifications to your devices faster than our old method, making testing newly created notifications and geotriggers easier.
