Using Berlin Update 2 myself....

I had ran into this quest a little while back making posts and doing a little research here and there about doing PUSH Notifications
with FMX but ran into many road blocks that FMX just couldn't handle out of the box properly.

What is there just doesn't cut it what so ever. ( Such as Android services to handle remote and local notification alerts for one )

So a HUGE shout out to Dave Nottage and Stephane Vanderclock ( Loki ) for their hard work on getting a
Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM) service working in FMX for iOS and Android.

Push Notifications in FMX is pretty crummy to begin with and now we have a great solution for FREE thanks to them.

Working with Dave and Stephane, they did a knock out job getting an Android and iOS solution out the door in a few weeks time
and Dave did a great write up for this on Android ( Part 1 ) , with the iOS ( Part 2 ) write up coming soon.

So if you want FCM based PUSH notifications here is your chance now to finally catch up.

Dave's write up over @ http://delphiworlds.com/2017/05/add-firebase-cloud-messaging-mobile-apps-part-1/

And I wrote a PM to Marco Cantu telling him that it appears that push
notifications seems to be a hughe trend and something not yet handled
too well in FMX so he should consider getting bugfixes/improvements into
update 1 of Tokyo...

I pointed to this forum and mentioned Dave's link. Now let's see what
happens on that front... ;-)

I sent a ticket into Salesforce a few weeks ago about my push notification woes for Android..

Pretty much told SOL and didn't answer my questions about the issues
with notification center not working in an Android service .... :-/

They just saw FCM mentioned and were like "we dont support FCM" and closed the ticket without
realizing I gave them a mostly working demo and was getting notifications working at the time but only when the app was running. But not with a service.
Which was my main issue... Android services.
And all their articles never mentioned once about notifications when app was running and such. So I assume just who it is with them on that subject.

With this now, it all that works!

I like the simplicity of their site, except for the fact that their "Order" page does not say whether the price is for
monthly, annually, or what! Even the next page where you put in payment details does not say it.
