Last month, we released Audience Lists, a method for targeting custom lists of device identifiers. We are pleased to announce an upgrade to the Audience List functionality with Lifecycle Lists. Lifecycle Lists are similar to the previously released Uploaded Lists, but rather than being based on uploaded CSV files, they are auto-generated by Urban Airship:
We currently provide three different list types:
First App Open: Users that have opened the app for the first time in the given time interval.
Opened App: Users that have opened the app in the given time interval.
Sent Notification: User devices that have received a notification within the given time interval.
Each list type (with the exception of First App Open) generates a total of three Audience Lists, one for each of the following time intervals: yesterday, last 7 days, and last 30 days.
Device Property Tags
The Urban Airship SDK collects huge quantities of data on user devices, and we are now making this data available to you in the form of Device Property Tags:
With Device Property Tags, you can target users based on the following device-centric information:
Locale country setting
iOS/Android app version
Notification opt-in status
Background push status
Location enabled status
iOS Device Model
You can see a full list of available tags, along with additional implementation details, in our Device Property Tag reference.
Ruby API Library
We now offer official support for a Ruby library which handles requests to our push and scheduled push endpoints. The library was previously open source, but will now be officially supported along with our other supported server libraries.
Support for a granularity of
minutes when creating Location Segments has been deprecated.
See Time Period Specifier in our API reference for information on valid time resolutions,
and Geographic Location Criteria for User Guide instructions.
