We are planning to develop a client server application. The server component shall be developed as WCF Services. The server component needs to send some notification to clients... The clients can be any of the following

1) WPF based windows apps
2) ASP.NET web application
3) Android or iOS apps

What is the best way of sending notifications

Why WCF? Why not use REST, possibly Web API? (You can do REST in WCF, but it requires a bit of setup/configuration.)

I would think that the "Observer Pattern" would fit nicely here.  Also, passing a Text file/XML file to the clients would be a good choice for notification.
