Hi guys. I have a working web service/application hosted on Windows Azure. The application communicates with Android application. I need to incorporate two-way messaging (like SMS) between the application and the android application. Right now, the application can send a message to the server, but I can't program it myself where I can "reply" from the server to the user on android application.
I would also like to incorporate push notifications on the web application, so when android application sends a message to the server, I want to get a real-time notification of that message. Maybe using pusher.com? Unless you know of a better way to accomplish this.
The website is written in asp.net/vb and is hosted on Azure. I am quite familiar with programming/html/css, so you don't have to worry about making anything pretty on the server, just getting the functionality done and I'll take care of everything else. My budget is limited, so I am not expecting to spend a lot on this. I could get everything completed myself, but would rather leave it to a professional to do it as I'd have to Google quite a few things before I get things to work :)
