Please watch a recording of the Push Notifications webinar. It walks you through the entire process of setting up, publishing and receiving push notifications.

I did same and the did all what was explained . I am getting the push notification only if app is running. If app is closed I am not getting notification
I am new to android please guide me.

For this you would need to implement android.app.Service, which provides the capability to have a running code for your app, while the app is closed.

Thanks mark

Could you provide an example, I have the same problem
