Develop mobile apps faster with Magnet. Magnet Message is a mobile communication framework that lets you easily add personalized interactions, messaging and chat to your app. Magnet Message has the APIs and features you need to add 1-to-1 and 1-to-many chat, public forums, private discussions, content feeds, and so much more! The code is free to download and Apache open source. It includes a ready-to-run server and native mobile SDKs for iOS and Android:
- Push and In-App Messaging: A robust notification system is critical to make sure that app development achieves the level of sophistication that modern apps require. Instead of going with long polling, it is highly desirable that apps provide notifications in the app itself and employ push notifications.
- Rich Message Payloads: Messaging payloads are getting ever more complex. Hence support for rich message payloads is highly desirable and almost critical.
- Confirmed Delivery: In multiple mission critical applications (transactional applications in finance/bookings/commerce etc. for example), delivery confirmation can become an absolute must in order to not lose revenue.
- Server-side REST API: With all the data residing on the servers, it is highly important to make sure that resources are accessed using REST APIs for the app to directly interact with them.
