I wonder if anyone has any pointers or good ideas on this. I am researching best way to use Mobile connect, to send push notifications to an external ios or android app.

I guess the app needs to include Marketing Cloud sdk ... best practice, anyone?

  • could you verify if you are researching mobile connect? (which is SMS communication) or Mobile Push (app integration, as Brian indicates) – Kenneth Wagner Jun 15 '17 at 13:00

The Marketing Cloud SDK would be the right way to accomplish this. The setup is simple, both iOS and Android are supported and there are a number of ways for integrating messaging in a broader system.
