Communicating between two Andorid apps in Kinvey

I plan to develop two Android apps (App A, App B) having distinct functionalities. I want to know a method to 1) Send push notifications from user/users of App A to user/users of App B (Both created as separate apps in Kinvey Management Console) 2) Send Data (Text) from App A to App B.   Can I achieve this using Kinvey? Or Do I have to use GCM to Transfer data between the two apps (I'm aware that Kinvey uses GCM to send push notifications. Is there a similar integration available for data transfer between two apps?) 

To simplify further, Alice is a user of App A. Bob is a user of App B. When Alice clicks a button in App A. Bob should get a push notification "Alice pressed the button" in his App B. (Both App A and B may have other users)

Hello Ankit,

Thank you for reaching out to us. At a high level, I have reviewed your two apps in your Kinvey Development environments, both App A and App B. The functionality that you have described can absolutely be accomplished using Kinvey. It will require the creation of a number of custom endpoints (business logic) to manage the push and data (text) flow between the two peer applications in different environments (different KIDs). I see that you've already begun to create those custom endpoints. We can certainly help you with those.

We would welcome the opportunity to discuss your apps in greater detail and learn about your requirements. We can help you with your analysis of our solution as well as help you to understand what would need to be done in order to meet your requirements. I already have your contact information via the inquiry you sent to us earlier today. I will forward it to the team who can help you with your evaluation.

In the meantime, If you have any specific questions that you would like to discuss, please feel free to update this forum post and we will be happy to answer them.
