Thank you very much App Inventor, for being part of my life :heart:


If you liked my work, donate me any amount so that I can remain motivated to create free and open source extensions.


Thank you for this great work
i have just one comment about this to make it clear for people who doesn't know what do u mean

i've used onesignal before it's true that if you opened the app and close it you will still can receive notifications but if the user close it from activities it will kill the app and won't receive any notification it's not a Background service


And it would be great to include the rest of methods

I will analyze. But doesn't NORTON already have a similar component in its constructor?

hi @Jarlissonlira2
when I use this block to open another screen there is a 2 seconds delay.


the app first open Screen1 and after to seconds it performs the action and Screen3 opens.

is there a fix for this?

PS: I am using Kodular!

You should ask in the Kodular forum !!


Hi! but this the original post for this extension by @Jarlissonlira2 so I thought about asking him here!

Regardless, you may be using different components only found in Kodular/the extension may work in a different way on Kodular. App Inventor and Kodular are quite different and not generally compatible, therefore it is always best to ask in the forum of the distribution you are developing on.

Hi @TIMAI2 I will pay attention next time, Thank you :slightly_smiling_face:


yes they have but they have outdated android support library. if we use this extension with mobile ads component of that (niotron) builder then apk not build error cause dx execution failed.

Im trying to test the notification extension just adding it ant setting up the OneSingal's appid (after setting it with firebase keys) , but the device is shown in audience as "Missing Android Support Library". Is it normal? i have read on another post that the extension needs to be rebuild to use AndroidX libraries API 29?

Congratulations, very useful plugin. I'm trying to use it too. I have made all the adjustments but still cannot receive notifications. A topic, video, blog etc. that explains how to do it. Is there?

I am having the exact same issue. I am hoping that he will update?

@Jarlissonlira2 is it possible that I'm just doing something wrong?

Not only on such case but even if user block notification for the app

U dont have setup of this external library on lib directory it work well on my case

Hi, How to setup this please, any detailed thread ?

Can this notification be set on time? For example, "show every 25th of the month".
