  • Forum iOS and Android Apps - Feedback please

    We are getting the Android and iOS mobile apps published for forum.defcon.org

    Currently the Android app is in beta and you can download it here:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...tin.build_6962

    We finally got our iOS developer account activated so next week we should have a beta out there as well.

    The big decision is do we enable push notifications or not?

    PRO:
    • You get notifications (Sometimes, it's still buggy)
    • If it works it feels like all your other apps, you don't have to go looking to see if you got a new DM
    CON:
    • It means slightly less privacy because now Firebase (Android) and Apple notification servers will gather more data
    • Less secure forum server config because we have to send a bunch of notifications out all the time
    • Slightly more complex rules and configurations to manage
    We expect to be out of beta and published in the next 2-3 weeks so any feedback is appreciated!

    We got our iOS developer account at long last, I hope to get to it later this week.

    In the mean time does anyone have any strong feelings one way or the other about push notifications?

      Push is fine as long as I can disable it. That way I can have it off except for the weeks around DEFCON when I want to keep on top of what's going on.

      Thanks!

        I think if you disable "app background refresh" it stops push.
    Working...
