I recently worked with Firebase, and it provides an option to create a marketing campaign with a title and a specific image to inform our audience about something. We just design the campaign and then use the push notifications. It would be good if Amazon also adds a similar feature.

In terms of improvement, I would like to have better customer support for SNS. We can then manage it very easily.

A major issue with AWS as a whole is that it has a lot of services that do the same thing, and people get confused about which one to use in which scenario. Previously, we used to use SNS for connecting microservices. SNS has around six types of subscribers. We can subscribe to Lambda, HTTP, HTTPS, SMS, email, and push notifications. We used to use HTTP endpoints and Lambda for connecting to microservice systems. About a year ago, AWS released EventBridge, which is a better service for connecting microservices.

SNS can be used for a lot of things. There are six different subscriber types available at the moment and among them, we use the SMS, email, and push notifications. We use the SMS and Email services to notify admins whenever something goes wrong, but our primary use case is to send push notifications to our mobile devices (customers). The backend engineers work on setting it up on AWS and most of the features like SMS, Email, etc do not need any frontend intervention, but yes for push notifications, the frontend needs to use the SDK to capture and display them.

My primary use case for Amazon SNS is for push messaging. We have a chatting application in my project library and so we have the mobile to mobile service for push notifications.

The pricing of push notifications and email services is quite fair but if you're planning to use it for sending SMS, then it's a bit on the costlier side. Maybe, It is because we don't have proper providers in my country. I would say that going through the AWS pricing page would be the best solution to find the exact pricing for the services you need.

It is the cheapest solution in the market. It is on a monthly basis. After a month, you are build based on your usage. There are no additional costs to the standard licensing fees.
