Hi Jeremy,

any chance setting up push notifications in an app will be covered?
Have you been able to try the yet to be released IonicPush? is it believed to easy to set up?

Thanks
Snehal

I've looked at it but haven't had time to setup a fully working example yet.

I avoided putting any Cordova plugins that required an external service to implement. This would have increased the overhead to create the example, and takes the focus away from how to use Cordova and puts it on how to setup a service. That is beyond the scope of the book.

As far as Ionic Push, it is still in alpha and I talked with the Ionic team about wanting to include it. Since the book is about to head to production, they suggested that I not use Ionic Push, because it could undergo signification changes before it is publicly released. I did not want to publish details in a book about a service that was likely to change.

With that said, you can look at https://www.airpair.com/javascript/posts/push-it-real-good-with-ionic or http://java.dzone.com/articles/early-look-ionic-push?mz=27249-mobile for some details about what to expect. I plan to write some on the blog about it, but getting the book out is my top priority right now.
