Pros: I bought a another app but i switch to one signal.

We use in our magazine, we send more than 100.000 notification daily.

- Insanly good notification service

- can track reach, click and other stats

- integrate with wordpress (they have plugin)

- can segment audience

- can send manual push notification

- Can integrate native and with popup

- Easy to use

- Can send automatic notification and schedule

- Integrate with alot of other service like Mautic or Zapier.

- IS FREE!

Support is amazing, i do request add UTM code to track, and they help me to implement on the code. Later they add the option in the plugin. So they help and wanna improve the product.

This is one of the best way to reach your audience.

Cons: Not really. Is very good.

Maybe the install is kind tricky is you dont have any experience with code or install. But overall is one of the best service i use.

I dont have any complain or issue. Work perfect.

Overall: We use on our magazine to brodcast new content and promotion to our readers. IS VERY GOOD!

Pros: OneSignal has a ton of features - they even recently added email push which I am still figuring out

The service is free for all features in fact i had to search a bit to figure out how they make money turns out they collect data on website users so that is something to explore in the future

You can customize everything you need with push features for every type of operating system etc

Easy and quick to send messages

It gets the job done

Cons: There is little to complain about - i guess intergrating all the different providers like google, amazon etc is a bit hard but considering i figured it out with no tech knowledge its not that hard

Overall: Its a good easy to use push notification service which we use to get users to signup and for which we can easily sned to our readers with important updates

Pros: Integrating OneSignal into your mobile app and server calls is extremely easy thanks to their API documentation and SDKs. Their dashboard UI is great too and can help you debug messages being delivered or failing. They are free (but share your data with vendors) or you can pay a fee to not have the data shared.

Cons: OneSignal 503s quite often sometimes push notifications fail, although these issues have happened less and less over time.

Pros: OneSignal is great for sending push notifications - even the setup is so simple that I was able to implement and add platforms such as IOS and i have no coding skills- we have used it to implement lucrative advertising offers and flag readers of important articles and alerts

Cons: I do not have cons right now for OneSignal - i wish there were way to be able to put link on website and have people subscribe directly but most PUSH platforms do not offer this extra feature to my knowledge

Pros: I absolutely love this software! I use it daily and am happy to pay for then upgrade because it helps me to reach, retain, and reconnect with my site visitors without me giving it much thought. Truly set and forget.

Cons: If you can. Integrate with just a few more email providers it would be awesome!

Overall: Love it!

Pros: OneSignal delivers on time, and once you are able to complete the setup, you will be able to deliver push notifications across different platforms. Another thing is that it is free. I'm still wondering how such a great software could come for free but who am I to complain

Cons: It is hard to set up, especially on Wordpress. First timers without coding knowlege may have difficult time, but watcjing tutorial videos might help

It is a powerful tool to make subscribers and send them latest updates.

Pros: Real-time update of Subscribed and Unsubscribed users to push notifications service. The best tool to increase traffic and keep your engaged subscribers by sending push notifications.

Cons: In a rare situation of migrating to a new domain name or App, you cannot carry the subscribers along which makes them useless.

Pros: At the price (free) this software simply cannot be beat. We were using a much more expensive software for over a year until we finally came across One Signal, which has all the same capabilities for free!

Cons: The implementation of any push notification software can be a bit technical to non-developers, but that's the nature of the beast, and certainly not the fault of One Signal, who has made the process as simple as it can possibly be. Great software, don't miss the opportunity, just hire a freelance developer to implement if you can't figure it out on your own.

Overall: A push notification service for free! There's no greater benefit than zero cost to consumer!

Pros: OpenSignal was adopted by my organization when we began to implement wireless technology in our emergency response vehicles. When operating a computer aided dispatch system, it's critical that first responders have access to the information they need at the moment they need it. OpenSignal enabled us to understand the connectivity and speeds available in different areas of our jurisdiction, and that information has enabled us to make informed decisions on the best ways to implement our systems.

Cons: There really isn't anything that I disliked about OpenSignal. It served its purpose and did so flawlessly.

Overall: I would definitely recommend OpenSignal to any other organization who chooses to undertake a project such as the one we are currently completing.

Pros: Using this plugin for a while. The plugin is very useful to send push notications to our visitors about latest posts. The most beautiful thing about this is it is free.

Cons: It send one push notification on chrome. If you will publish an another post then this push notification will overwrite the previous push notification.

Overall: Sending free push notifications to my users.

Pros: After the great redesign of OneSignal, it has become even better: easy localizations of the push, A/B tests and templates work great. Besides, there are a number of parameters you can use for segmentation and all it is free. Really great choice for a company of any size

Cons: I wish there were more statistics on the sent push: e.g. in what countries it was opened, how much time since delivery has passed, etc.

Pros: I implemented this into a Wordpress site using their WP plugin and it worked with no problems. Took me only 5 minutes to set up. I have also used their API and it very clean and well documented.

Cons: I tried implementing his on a custom site with their provided code and it never worked correctly. I think their custom code probably needs a little work.

Overall: Web browser notifications.

Pros: the concept is fantastic. Unfortunately with my experience they dont seem to deliver what is promised

Cons: Its very difficult to set up to a working standard (still not achieved even with support) despite it being an easy plugin. I can not get ANY subscribed users to actually receive any notifications. I have tried ALL troubleshooting options to no avail. 1/10

As support is in another country its more or less impossible for me to get any help.

Pros: The iOS P12 generation is wonderful, good support, nice tool to generate Notifications.

Cons: So far so good. It would be nice if we can identify the user's phone by an id that can be seen in the phone app as well.

Pros: easy to configure .The notifies are sent really fast

Include the library and configure on android and ios is very simple.

Cons: I've have some concern about how the data used by my instance are used by the company.

The template miss the possibility to inject value, this can be a big problem to use it.
