C2DM allows you to push notifications to your Android applications. The cool thing about it is that your application doesn’t have to run in the background in order to receive messages. In this case, my ANE creates a notification with a specified ticker, title and text. When the user taps on the notification it runs an AIR application and passes the sent message text that is displayed in the app. Check out the magic for yourself in the video below.
