Mobile push notifications are a fast and universal way to engage and retain players. Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS) provides one simple API for fast, reliable, scalable, inexpensive push notifications to Apple, Google, and FireOS devices. Customers have seen up to a 100% increase in player engagement, and have reduced cost by 60%, with Amazon SNS.
