I want to implement Push notifications in my android apps without using GCM(Google Cloud Messaging) is it any alternatives to implement this.
If I were you I used GCM or a paid sdk.
But to do it use your own server with a SOAP communication or HTTP request. But you need to implement all servers and client side.
You can use this: AWS | Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS) - Push Messaging
with 1 millions free for the first time
Well, there are just a number of other options ! you can use
- Tokudu notification.
- Parse library.
- Userban airship.
Can also check “The Deacon Project” It aims to produce an open-source push notifications library used by Android developers to receive Push notifications from a Meteor comet web server. It is an Android app that is used for testing and demonstration of Deacon, and is also developed by members of the Deacon project.
