Are iOS push notifications needed for this use case?

Hi folks,
I'm considering LiveCode for an iOS app but I think I need push notification support. 

The use case is to alert users of app-specific messages waiting (even when the application is not active) and set the little 'messages waiting' counter on the app's icon. I'm looking for on-device behaviour much like with the Mail app. 

Is this use case supportable with LiveCode as-is or do I need to look elsewhere unless/until RunRev implement support for push notifications?
