Xcode 8 issue - JS ERROR TypeError: NSNotificationCenter.defaultCenter is not a function.

See original GitHub issue

Thanks for the very handy module!

I upgraded to Xcode 8 and Nativescript 2.3.0, and I’m using 1.1.2 of this module.

My app is crashing as soon as the module is referenced. I tried installing your demo app with the following in the package.jspn file:

    "nativescript": {
        "id": "org.nativescript.localnotifications",
        "tns-android": {
            "version": "2.3.0"
        "tns-ios": {
            "version": "2.3.0"
    "dependencies": {
        "nativescript-local-notifications": "1.1.2",
        "tns-core-modules": "2.3.0"
    "devDependencies": {
        "babel-traverse": "6.8.0",
        "babel-types": "6.8.1",
        "babylon": "6.8.0",
        "filewalker": "0.1.2",
        "lazy": "1.0.11",
        "nativescript-dev-typescript": "^0.3.1",
        "typescript": "^1.8.2"

The app builds and then crashes with the following error:

Sep 17 08:30:10 raef LocalNotifications[28139]: file:///app/tns_modules/nativescript-local-notifications/local-notifications.js:4:44: JS ERROR TypeError: NSNotificationCenter.defaultCenter is not a function. (In 'NSNotificationCenter.defaultCenter()', 'NSNotificationCenter.defaultCenter' is an instance of NSNotificationCenter)
Sep 17 08:30:10 raef[19818] (UIKitApplication:org.nativescript.localnotifications[0x9b6a][28139]): Service exited due to Segmentation fault: 11

This is the same error I am getting in my project.

Any ideas?
