We are currently deciding whether we can build/do our apps communications in 8Base without external APIs/3rd Parties OR must we use 3rd party Communications APIs.
This is for a variety of use cases going forward e.g;
1- Alerts & Notifications (mobile push notifications, in-app alerts, and SMS);
2- In-app Chat (Chat APIs for secure and reliable one-to-one, group, and live event messaging)
3- IoT Device Control (APIs for bidirectional monitoring and triggering device action)
Providers such as Twilio, PubNub, Amazon SNS, Vonage, “any other recommendation?”, etc have come up in the discussion.
Anyone’s experience with either of these (and implementation in 8Base) would be greatly appreciated. Perhaps even a different recommendation all together - open to ideas.
PS: Cost is (obviously) a factor for most of our clients.
@sebastian.scholl if you have come across this or answered this, a reference would be greatly appreciated.
