If you have sent push notifications with Parse Server you are probably familiar with the issues that come with having larger audience. The way the Parse Server's push notifications work is the following: your Installations are fetched in batches, these batches are then sent respectively to FCM(Android) and/or APNS(iOS). One of the issues is that the progress of these batches is not tracked. Let’s say your application has 2 million installations, currently ...

Last month was SashiDo's first exhibition at a conference - we attended Webit Festival Europe's Founders Games.

Last week we asked you to guess the new feature we've been working on lately. The correct answer is: we are launching two new regions - Australia and Asia - by the end of the month. Today's demanding clients do feel the difference of speed regarding app usability. An improvement in the loading time is a pretty good reason for more positive reviews on the app stores, and let's be honest, the positive reviews are the currency of the app development market.
