PhoneGap - Push Notifications

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Thu Sep 25, 2014 7:58 am

@Ashley,

It seems it was quite a big deal with iOS8 that we wouldnt need to use stuff like CocoonJS for building apps and that Ejecta and Phonegap were the preferred methods of wrapping apps for standalone / mobile app store use.

Im curious if there are technologies that are tied to Phonegap that we can use in our Construct 2 apps, most importantly:

- Push Notifications: http://devgirl.org/2013/07/17/tutorial- ... plication/
- Speech Recognition: http://plugreg.com/plugin/an-rahulpande ... plugin-ios

Any ideas if this type of thing can be used with our games in any way - or what that might require? is it a pipe dream? Esp. Push Notifications?

If there is a PhoneGap Build plugin for it, you can write a C2 plugin with the Javascript SDK to use it. I think a bunch of C2 plugins for PhoneGap already exist.

@80bit - C2 already supports speech recognition at the browser level (if the browser supports web speech API). What's the use case for push notifications?

@Ashley

Planning & experimenting with a game centred around push notifications letting you know when there has been a drastic change in the game world while you've been away (say earthquake or something). The (preferably local) push notifications would be determined and scheduled while you are playing based on variables etc as you play.

Does this sound feasible / realistic at all?
