I know iOS4 and greater support background apps hence one may be able to send notifications. What if Application is not active even in background. Can I still send notifications?
I am working on a TODO app so have to send notification for due tasks.
please note I am not talking about APPLE's Push Notifications.
The app does not need to be running in order to receive the push notifications, the certificates you create and attach to the app allows iOS to know which app to talk to when the push notification comes in.
So you can receive push notifications in these situations;
- App running in forground
- App running but not in foreground
- App not running
Basically as long as the app user has agreed to receive push notifications, they will get them.
