Pulse Places

Provide users with a content browser and trigger geofence and Bluetooth beacon scenarios with local push notifications.

Included with the Pulse Platform.

Pulse Places App

Ionic 2 Hybrid App

Pulse Places is based on the popular Ionic 2 framework. The app works on iOS and Android and consumes the Pulse Platform API to trigger content and local push notifications. Use it as a boilerplate for your own Pulse Platform installation. Restyle, rebrand and use the app for a franchise or personalize it for your business.

Technical Limitations

Mobile development is not simple and we advise not to buy Pulse Platform and Pulse Places if you don't have hybrid development experience. Or native, because you can create your own app based on the Pulse Platform API.

On iOS the app works as expected with the platform scenario builder. On Android there are some caveats. Currently it's not possible to trigger beacon enter and exit states when the app is killed. Also, because it's not possible to run hybrid code in a background service, geofences can't use scenario specific limitations like date / time, frequency and delay when the app is killed.
