I'm building an app in which users can specify subjects of interest. Is is possible to send push notification only to users that have specified the subject of the push notification?

boldExample:bold

A user selects football as their favourite sport. I would like to send a push notification to users that have football set as as their favourite sport. Users that have hockey set as favourite sport won't receive that push notification.

Hello!

Yes, of course You can. You can create tag and filter in pushwoosh control panel and then send messages for some users(for example which choose footbal). Read more here http://www.pushwoosh.com/programming-push-notification/advanced-tags-guide/

I'm using Phonegap Build and the free subscription of Pushwoosh, does that make any difference?

Unfortunately tags and filters not available for a free subscription. But it available for premium subscription http://www.pushwoosh.com/pricing/

But my main question is, can it be done using phonegap build? And do you maybe have an example which I can work with?

I don't quit see how this would work. The client must initiate being part of a group, right? Pushwoosh then receives something (token+group?) and stores this combination. From the Pushwoosh login a notification can be send to all users that are part of this group.
