Each app has some general settings which can be configured. These settings can be changed by clicking the cog icon in the toolbar when inside an app.

Regarding the Enable Push setting: This will be deprecated from Appfarm version 23.4 (to be released september 2023). It will be replaced by an action node for requesting permissions. Note that with this Appfarm Release, push notifications will also be available for iOS devices. Up until spring 2023, push notifications have only been available for progressive web apps for Android.

If you want to perform an action on a schedule when the app is in use, for example every minute, you can use a timer. Timers can be used to run automatic carousels/slideshows, fetch the latest data from an external API, or other dynamic features.
As an example, say you have a timer that is permanently enabled and has an interval of 30 seconds. When the app is loaded, a 30 second countdown will begin. When it reaches 0 the action specified for On Timeout will be triggered. The countdown will then begin again.
Topics can be used for lightweight communication between components. For example, to synchronize axis selection in charts.
