SMS Texting vs Push Notifications

sms vs push notification

The good The Bad and The Ugly…

One of the common arguments for using a ‘Native App’ is that they offer a ‘Push Notification’ feature. A ‘Push Notification’ is a message that you send to all the app users that pops up on their screen relaying the message in real time to the user. Its key selling point is that it is free and replaces SMS Texting thereby reducing/removing all SMS texting costs. To all intents and purposes, it sounds like an ideal solution.

However, having initially adopted Push Notifications ourselves, we discovered, that they are not all they promised to be. We found that our school clients continued to rely on SMS Texts for critical messaging to parents because they found that Push Notifications proved to be unreliable. The conclusion schools have been sharing with us is that SMS Texts, despite their cost, are 100% reliable and the most effective way to communicate with parents. For schools, guaranteeing their messages reach every parent 100% of the time is critical. The 80% success rate of push notifications is just not good enough for schools. They need to be able to contact parents on all mobile devices – not just smart ones.

Why you should be creating an app on your Summer staycation

“Being on holiday is not having anything to do and having all day to do it.” – Robert Orben

Sometimes it might even take a turn for the worse, with some of us experiencing leisure sickness (that thing that happens when you catch a cold on your first day off). This is especially true if your Summer plans consist of a staycation. Read more
