I am using Ionic 2 to build a Chat App. The Chat App is using Ionic and Meteor and works perfectly. The app has an event that is fired when a new message appears (when Meteor updates the Mongo cursor).
I am considering using either Local Notifications or Push Notifications. I would prefer Local Notifications, because they are simpler and I already have an event when I need a notification.
My question however is, if the app is not running, will it still be able to display a notification if I use Local Notification?
