WHERE is a location based application which delivers relevant local places, people and things to your mobile phone. WHERE contains several local feeds including, weather, traffic, a gas station locator and a social networking feature, WHERE Connect. The WHERE Connect feature utilizes push technology to inform users of new messages. As private messages are left between buddies, the user receives a push notification about the unread message waiting in their inbox.
The engineering team at WHERE was able to get up and running with our push notifications API very quickly and it allowed them to focus on other functionality and not the details of integrating or scaling push. We’re really excited to be working with such a great team.
