Using GCM instead of APNS in a Xamarin.iOS project

I am using Google Cloud Messaging with a Xamarin.iOS project. Everything is working fine but I could not found documentation to integrate the Urban Airship iOS SDK with GCM.

Is it possible to use Urban Airship pointing to Google Cloud Messaging for a Xamarin.iOS project?

Didn't find what you were looking for?

  • Hello Luis,

    It is not possible to integrate the Urban Airship iOS SDK with Google Cloud Messaging (GCM). This is because GCM is used for Android push notifications. GCM would be used with our Android SDK in an Android Studio project.

    If you are looking to send push notifications to an iOS audience, you need to use Apple Push Notification Service (APNS). You will need to create an APNS certificate before you start sending push notifications to your iOS audience. The steps to set up an APNS certificate are detailed here: Get Your Certificate from Apple

    I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
