Many people want to be notified of specific events. There are several ways to send notifications: SMS, e-mails or messaging applications like Slack and Telegram are some common ones. Those solutions frequently require some central configuration to record who will receive messages, which is difficult to maintain. ESS developed a native mobile application, both for iOS and Android, to manage notifications. The application allows the users to subscribe to the topics they are interested in, removing the need for a central configuration. A web server is used as gateway to send all notifications following Apple and Google protocols. This server exposes a REST API that is used both by clients to send messages and mobile applications to retrieve and manage those messages. This paper will detail the technical implementation as well as the lessons learnt from this approach.
