So I am using a Wordpress plugin that scrapes all my facebook pages feed and posts it on my website, very responsive, quick and I am happy with it. Here is the plugin:
I am building this app in Phonegap and want to make it so when the page owner (me) makes a facebook post- which then automatically posts to my website- then a push notification will go to all the app users using android, iOS and possibly Windows. I know I will have to set up a cronjob to maybe check for the post, but then what should I do to to send the push notification to users?
I have checked out Parse.com but they are not offering support, also PushBots and OneSignal. I may be in over my head, I'm not the best developer but when I tried to hire a freelancer I spent 2 hours just trying to explain exactly what I need done, when it seems pretty simple to understand? I would love to hire a professional who can do this, also it's for a non-profit and they need it soon.
Any recommendations on push notification service to use for this with PhoneGap or where to hire someone?
Have you searched for PhoneGap push notification plugins? I searched yesterday and found one that seemed pretty easy. You just need the correct registrations with your Apple and Android developer accounts.
What plugin did you find? How did it work?
Actually, it looks like Adobe has their own push plugin now. I found a good tutorial on the PhoneGap site about this: Push Notifications | PhoneGap Docs You'll need to use the PhoneGap CLI (command line interface) to send test push notifications to your device.
