Push service

Hi,

 

I'd like to know if I need to be partner with RIM to do push application to my clients on their devices.

 

Thanks!

 

Walter.

Re: Push service

Hi and welcome to the forum.

 

I must admit I am not aware of any way to push an application to a device unless your client is a corporate Blackberry, in which case the corporate administrators can push the application.

 

It is more usual for the client to pull the application.  You would send them an email containing a link and they click on the link and download from there.  Would that approach work for you?

I think he wanted to ask a question about how to push data to a BlackBerry application but never actually got around to asking a question.

Re: Push service

And there's a ton of information about push (both BES and BIS) in my book - including sample applications on the book's web site.
