    Hello @Christoph

    Part 1:
    1) Follow the instruction by creating push certificate ( https://documentation.onesignal.com/docs/generating-an-ios-push-certificate ) and link it to the app id.
    2) Download both certifications (Development & Production)

    Part 2:
    1) Created account in onesignal ( www.onesignal.com )
    2) Add your app to their dashboard and upload (Push Certifications)
    3) Continue with the steps and download "Onesingal SDK" ( Download SDK 2.0.1 - https://github.com/OneSignal/OneSignal-iOS-SDK/releases ).

    Part 3:
    1) Export your BB game and open it in xcode.
    2) Install "Onesignal SDK" framework under framework section (Same as installing heyzap framework).
    3) Ensure -ObjC is there in "Build Settings" - "Other Linker Flags".
    4) Add SystemConfiguration.framework to "Link Binary with Libraries" under "Build Phases".
    5) Select the root project and Under Capabilities Enable "Push Notifications".
    6) Next Enable "Background Modes" and check "Remote notifications".
    7) Add following code to your AppDelegate.

    Code:
    #import "AppDelegate.h"
    
    //Add this line
    #import <OneSignal/OneSignal.h>
    
    @implementation AppDelegate
    
    - (BOOL)application:(UIApplication*)application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary*)launchOptions {
    
    //Add this line. Replace '5eb5a37e-b458-11e3-ac11-000c2940e62c' with your OneSignal App ID.
    [OneSignal initWithLaunchOptions:launchOptions appId:mad:"5eb5a37e-b458-11e3-ac11-000c2940e62c"];
    
    return YES;
    }
    
    NOTE:
    - The app onesignal ID is available in onesignal dashboard under APP SETTINGS -> Keys&IDs
    - Part 3 documentation is available in ( https://documentation.onesignal.com/docs/using-onesignal-in-your-ios-app ).

    i dont think xcode will accept emoji in the code section :p, Better to copy and pasted from the onesingal documentation.

    Incredibly awesome. Thanks Nasser!

    When do the push notification appear? When opening the app? Or can this be chosen somehow?

    @Christoph

    You most welcome bro...

    It appears in background / iphone screen (If the user accept the notification request at the first time he open the app), then whenever you send notification from onesignal backend. it should delivered to everyone accepted the notifications request. and you also can check every notification report from onesingal backend.

    But the thing; It is only notification that the user will receive but for the callback / deeplinking is something that the developer needs to configure and i'm still trying to figure this out (i.e when notification is opened the action will takes the user to game store or anything else).

    Thank you for this detailed tutorial but I don't understand something -

    This part -

    "
    #import "AppDelegate.h"

    //Add this line
    #import <OneSignal/OneSignal.h>

    @implementation AppDelegate

    - (BOOL)application:(UIApplication*)application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary*)launchOptions {

    //Add this line. Replace '5eb5a37e-b458-11e3-ac11-000c2940e62c' with your OneSignal App ID.
    [OneSignal initWithLaunchOptions:launchOptions appId:mad:"5eb5a37e-b458-11e3-ac11-000c2940e62c"];

    return YES;
    }

    We don't use AppDelegate in BB and also there is no OneSignal.h file

    What to do ?

    Also when importing the SDK - where to and which file ?

    Thank you
