SDK 5 Goes Live Supporting iOS 8 Interactive Notifications

September was another busy month at Urban Airship. We continued to develop and ship items on our long-term road map while also responding to the latest iOS feature announcements with a major release to our iOS SDK.

Combined with API support for interactive notifications in iOS 8, the SDK 5 release for iOS 8 allows our customers to begin planning and deploying their interactive notification strategy today. UI support for these features is coming; watch this space for updates.

We also launched First Open, which automatically records a user's very first app open as a unique event that can trigger subsequent messages and/or messaging campaigns.
