Over the next several blog posts, we’d like to discover what hypermedia as the engine of application state, or HATEOAS (“Hay-dee-us”), means. We'll start by considering each of the six constraints of the architectural style of REST as defined by Roy Fielding in his PhD dissertation, with an emphasis on HATEOAS.
A recent study suggests that push notifications, delivered directly to a mobile device, are perhaps the best way to capture and engage users, a trend that hasn’t flown under the radar of mobile app developers. We'd like to show you how easily you can send Push Notifications by using a sample app (iOS, Android, or PhoneGap) with our App Services push notification API.
According to a study by Mogreet, 88% of emails are never opened, 84% of Facebook news feed stories are never seen, and 71% of tweets are ignored. But get this - the study revealed that 98% of SMS & MMS messages are opened.
