Reading through recent comments, a few of you have asked how to get local notifications working on your iOS apps. Local Notifications are the one that pop up on your lock screen and give you information such as when an alarm goes off or a calendar item becomes due. If you are using your iPhone, they also drop down from the top of the screen for a few seconds. Types of apps that use this feature could include calendars, todo lists, games and any other type of app that might want to inform a user that some action could be taken or that some information is available. An example of a local notification was used in the Background App Refresh tutorial recently. In todays tutorial, we’ll show you in more detail how this is done.
