So good news,

Topic support for GCM is trivial to implement.  In fact after 20 minutes I have most of the work done in the Android library.  The behavior of topics matches the behavior of categories.  I would like to propose some enhancements.


1) Changing categories/topics currently requires the application to unregister and reregister on UPS.  I would like to add a subscribe and unsubscibe method to the pushRegistrar interface which will subscribe and unsubscribe the device from topics.

Ok, makes sense. Actually I like the idea. Should this be done on the other SDKs too? If so... does it make sense to change the RESTful endpoint to? e.g. do a PUT to update the device metadata?

I recall we kinda had this talk before. See:

2) All Message listeners receive messages from all topics the device is subscribed to.  I would like to extend registrar manager to be able to attach messages handlers per topic as well as globally.

Due to the nature of the Android layer around GCM 3, this is specific to Android only, right ? 

+1 on this. Same reasoning like Erik Jan here :) 

This are both simple, easy changes which shouldn't be a lot of work and will really improve the push experience in Agdroid 3.0.


bring it on :)
