Use Google Push in native app

Hi all,


does anybody know if it is possible to use Google Push API in my native app?


I'm writing a social app. There is a similar Adroid app which uses push api to get messages from a service, however I have no access to the service itself.


I'm able to resolve push registration info (regarding the Android app), but I don't know how to get notifications in a native (Cascades) app.


Is it feasible at all?

Re: Use Google Push in native app

You will have to use the BlackBerry push service (documentation). Maybe there is a way to intercept a push from the Android server and then call the BlackBerry push server?
