    The Pushy team answered some questions for me, here are some specifics:

    1. Encryption for Push notifications? Pushy Pro plan uses plaintext MQTT to deliver notifications downstream to devices. Their Enterprise plan however is fully TLS encrypted in all communications to and from Pushy, including your servers to theirs

    2. Opensource? The Enterprise plan Some parts of their service is open source, others are not. Mostly their client SDKs are open source (but not the core Android SDK)

    Use Pushy instead of GCM (for one example). It is a replacement for GCM but each app developer must manually embed Pushy in their apps. Pushy cannot itself be flashed onto a non-GMS phone to replace GCM.

    Protonmail app development should support devices without GMS, you can embed the Pushy SDK in your app and it will work on these devices, instead of using GCM.

    I think there is a growing market for people who do not want to use Google services at all. This one change would also be innocuous to those with Google services installed while giving "unGoogled" phones the ability to receive push notifications.

    Even selling this app (downloadable from the Protonmail website) would be reasonable to help fund or pay for pushy fees of $.005 per device per month (unlimited puush notifications). However Protonmail could even host their own Pushy service which may be more feasible for cost and security stand point.

    Yes, please do this! I do not use the Google App Store. I tried side loading the Protonmail app and it wont open any mail. Keeps telling me to install the Play Store.... NO!

    Please make the protonmail app available on the F-droid alternative market. Many corporation mobile devices do not have the Playstore installed. Others may not want GApps on the devices and prefer open source alternatives like F-Droid. Either case, Protonmail's growing user base would benefit from another alternative repository other than the Playstore.

    Incorporate Autocrypt into the Protonmail apps to enable end to end OpenPGP encryption with non protonmail users.

    I would love to be able to sync contacts to protonmail. End reliance on Google.
