The WhatsApp notification in iOS shows a two line notification. The first shows the contact name (in bold) and the second line shows the detailed message. Can we build local notifications like that using B4i alone or will it require some Objective C?

(Whatsapp actually uses push notifications)

Local notifications:
App.RegisterUserNotifications(True, True, True)
Dim n As Notification
n.Initialize(DateTime.Now + 5000)
n.AlertBody = "test"
If App.OSVersion >= 8.2 Then
   Dim no As NativeObject = n
   no.SetField("alertTitle", "This is the title")
End If
