In iOS 12 push notifications became richer with more options for customisation and interaction, but many apps still haven’t explored their full potential. Inspired by Apple Messages, we created a rich notification UI to help Etsy buyers and sellers communicate more efficiently. This talk covers the unique challenges of extension development, designing a user experience beyond the app, and what we learned along the way. You’ll walk away from this talk more prepared, and hopefully inspired, to embark on your own rich notification adventure.
