Overview

Vibes offers this Push Notifications SDK to let you send push messages to consumers, track your app interactions with notifications, and allow mobile apps to register themselves to receive push messages from Vibes Mobile Engagement Platform.

Setup and Configuration

When working with Vibes Push SDK files, contact your Vibes account manager for help with the following:

  • App ID – Your app_id uniquely identifies the application and will be needed to configure the SDK. The app_id will be the same for the Android and iOS apps.
  • Configuring Certificates and Server Keys – Your app will need to securely communicate with Apple and Google via the Vibes Platform, so APNS certificates and Firebase server keys will be required.
  • Test App Account – Before you submit your app to the app store, you can log into the Vibes Platform and test your push notifications in a test account on your test app.
