Push notifications have become an integral part of Telerik Backend Services, and with this release we are bringing a wide range of new capabilities. Not only have we simplified the push notifications registration on a device using our own Telerik Push Notifications plug-in, but we also introduced the ability to easily troubleshoot failed messages and to control the badges count on the device straight from the server.

Interactive Push Notifications let you define action buttons straight in the notification in iOS. This is a great way to improve the user experience for some of your most common notifications.
