Basic information about Amazon SNS Service:

Developer Resources:



  • SNS lets you push messages to mobile devices or distributed services, via API or an easy-to-use management console.
  • you can publish a message once, and deliver it one or more times.
  • you can choose to direct unique messages to individual Apple, Google or Amazon devices, or broadcast deliveries to many mobile devices with a single publish request.
  • SNS allows you to group multiple recipients using topics. A topic is an “access point” for allowing recipients to dynamically subscribe for identical copies of the same notification. One topic can support deliveries to multiple endpoint types — for example, you can group together iOS, Android and SMS recipients. When you publish once to a topic, SNS delivers appropriately formatted copies of your message to each subscriber
