    We are developing an app using React Native, and planning to consume notifications sent by WCA.

    There is no React Native SDK mentioned on this page. However, there are SDKs available for
    – MobileFirst (https://www.npmjs.com/package/react-native-ibm-mobilefirst-push), and
    – Bluemix (https://github.com/ibm-bluemix-mobile-services/bms-push-react-native).

    I was wondering if we can use one of the above SDKs for IBM Mobile Push from WCA?
