Nokia Notifications enables you to implement Nokia X apps with push notifications. Nokia Notifications API consists of the Nokia Notifications Client API and the Nokia Notifications Service API, and provides similar features as Google Cloud Messaging. When starting developing with Nokia Notifications, first you need to log in to the Nokia Notifications developer console. There you can create your service and get the API keys including the sender ID, which is a unique identifier for your notifications service. If you are using Google Cloud Messaging in the current version of your application, you can port the app to use Nokia Notifications instead, or even add Nokia Notifications to the same code base to support both notification services in a single APK. Both Client and Service APIs are very similar to those of Google Cloud Messaging, reducing the porting effort to minimum.
