This is the early release documentation for the Vibes Push Notifications SDK. It provides an initial overview of the Vibes Push Notifications SDK for Apple iOS and Android, and is meant for developers who want to have their systems interact with Vibes push notification technology.
The purpose of this draft document is to outline the proposed integration steps required to implement the SDK integration for potential clients before the SDK is released.
Vibes offers this Push Notifications SDK to let you send push messages to consumers, track your App interactions with notifications, and allow mobile applications to register themselves to receive push messages from Vibes Mobile Engagement Platform.
Note: The complete Vibes Push Notifications SDK documentation will be available when the final Vibes Push Notifications SDK is released.
