13. Notifications: In-app notifications are messages that app creators can send to users within their app. They’re commonly used to direct users toward points of interest to boost usage, retention, and lifetime value (LTV). Used properly, in-app notifications help users find what they’re looking for and increase their satisfaction.
These notifications can be triggered based on any mixture of segmentation, behavior, or timing, they allow app creators to customize the journey for each user.
