"Do you support push notifications?" is one of the most frequently asked questions we receive, and we get why. No matter what content you offer to your readers, push notifications is one of the most powerful feature to communicate and engage your readers if you have an app.

There are two different ways you can set up your push notifications using MagLoft. The first one background download push notifications. This is the setting you use if you want a specific issue to be downloaded to your readers' devices.

On the lower box that says 'Issue to Re-download', you will be required to select which issue you want to start downloading on your readers devices.

That is all! There are no limits to how many push notifications you get, you can set up as many as you'd like. Such an easy way to increase your readers' engagement, right? ;)
