New Appery.io Customizable Plans and Website

Posted: October 20th, 2020Author:

Not only have revamped our website, we’ve got some great added options for customizing new and existing Beginners, Pro, Team and Ultimate Appery.io plans!

Appery.io now has new Plan Customization Options, allowing you to make changes to key aspects of your account and see the cost immediately, before you place your order. You can now mix and match exactly the parameters you need to get the perfect plan for your needs.

Here are some of the highlights from our new customizable plan options:

  • Beginner Plan: 12 screens per app, not just 5
  • Pro, Team, Ultimate Plans: Up to 50 developer seats, whatever you need
  • Pro, Team, Ultimate Plans: Up to 50 apps in one account

If you’re looking for more detailed info on how we’ve changed the individual plans, please visit the Plans and Pricing Page on our brand new website. If our new level of customization still isn’t enough for you, get in touch with support, and we can discuss additional options that fit your needs.

Are you looking for development help from our team of experts? We’ve got you covered with new Support Pack options. Under our old system you only had the choice of 8 or 40 hours of assistance, but now you can choose from 5, 8, 16, 24 AND 40 hour Support Packs. We trust that these additional options will help you get the support you need to realize your app. If you need more than 40 hours of support please do not hesitate to get in touch with our team.

We’re genuinely excited to offer these new changes to our website, Support Pack options, and plan customization. Whether you were hitting the limits on the old plans and needed to upgrade, new to our platform and wondering how to get the right amount of expert assistance, or anywhere in between, we’re here to help you effectively and efficiently develop the apps that you’ve envisioned. We can’t wait to see how you put the new and improved Appery.io to work for you.

The New September Release Has Arrived!

Posted: September 14th, 2020Author:

Autumn has come and we have new updates for our platform! In this release, we focused our efforts on new Ionic 4 features.

Ionic 4 Range Component

This slider feature lets users select from a range of values by moving the knob. It can accept dual knobs, but by default one knob controls the value of the Range.

 

Ionic 4 Modal Window

We have added a no-code option for opening modals in Ionic 4, similar to navigate to page action. Now you can pass values and parameters to certain variables on modal close and open.

Ionic 4 Switching Checked State

To make app development faster, we changed the checked state of the following Ionic 4 components:

Now the states of these components are updated at every mapping invocation.

Files Manager

You can now upload any type of file (not just images using our Media Manager). To do it, in your app, go to the App settings > General tab and upload the needed files under the Assets section:

Bugs (Less of Them)

No update is complete without bug fixes. So, yes, we fixed many large and small bugs to make the platform better.

Keep in Touch

If you run into any hiccups with this release, please reach out to us via the forum or by sending us an email. (To send us an email, sign in to the platform and click the Get Help link at the top.)

Our developers are always happy to help you with your application. Thank you for your business, and we hope you enjoy these new improvements to our platform.

Meet a Winning App from Our COVID-19 Hackathon

Posted: August 12th, 2020Author:

Two months ago, we announced the winning apps from the Appery.io COVID-19 Virtual Hackathon. Today, we would like to present one of them to you. “Deep Breath” is a relaxation app featuring a number of timed meditation exercises, as well as an assortment of relaxing nature sounds to aid in sleep.

App Description

This awesome app is designed to help people relax by making it easier to practice self-guided meditations and quick relaxation techniques. These techniques can be practiced on your own with the aid of the app. No special knowledge or experience is required—just follow the exercise steps. Another app feature is a playlist of relaxing sounds from nature, which can be of great help in case you have trouble sleeping.

You can try the app by actually creating it as an app from a backup file. To restore the app from a backup, follow these steps:

  1. Download the app backup file.
  2. Click Create new app.
  3. Click From backup and select the project backup file on your drive.
  4. Type in the app name and click Create:

Setting Up the App

Note that, before you can export the app APK or IPA and install it on your device, you will need to import the following Cordova plug-ins under the Resources > Cordova plugins tab:

When done, select them in the App builder under the App settings > Cordova plugins > Imported Cordova plugins tab:


Also, make sure that the File plug-in and the Media plug-in are added (enabled) in your app (under App settings > Cordova plugins > Core Cordova plugins).

Please, note as well that if you need to build the app for iOS, you will need to upload your distribution certificate and provisioning profile that you obtained from Apple under the App settings > iOS binary tab. You can check this document in case you need help with exporting your application for iOS. And, here, you will find the document that explains how to manage certificates in Appery.io.

Finally, when you are all set, you can proceed with exporting your app (EXPORT > Binary (.apk) or EXPORT > Binary (.ipa)) and then installing it on your device.

See. It looks just beautiful.

Using the App

The app UI is intuitive and attractive. You navigate through the app using a bottom tabs bar.

The Home page nests three different options: MEDITATION TIMER, QUICK RELAX, and SLEEP BETTER all of which offer different activities to be used for relaxation:

Technical Details

The app uses the Cordova Media plug-in for playing audio files, and the native HTML5 audio element is used for playing audio on the desktop. When you play audio on the device, the user can then use the music controls that are shown. The app uses the Cordova Music Controls plug-in for this.

The Feedback page uses the Email Composer Cordova plug-in for composing emails on mobile devices; for desktop machines, it uses a simple HTML ”mailto:” link.


The exercise data is stored in a custom Angular service, dataService.

The auxiliary ngx-countdown module is used for managing the countdown timer on the Timer app page. The progress circle is presented by an SVG element, whose attributes depend on the timer value.

Finally, the Screen Orientation Cordova plug-in forces the app to use the portrait mode.

Important Note on the “ITMS-90809: Deprecated API Usage” Error

Posted: July 15th, 2020Author:

Recently, many of our users have started receiving the “ITMS-90809: Deprecated API Usage” message when submitting their Appery.io projects to AppStore. This is connected with the fact that Apple is currently in the process of formal deprecating UIWebView and is migrating to WKWebView, UIWebView’s successor.

In this connection, we would like to update our users with the following instructions on how to avoid the issue with Apple submissions:

The workaround to apply for Ionic 4 apps:

  1. Set the following Cordova versions under the App settings > Android binary/iOS binary tabs:

      

 

2.  Check if the default InAppBrowser 4.0.0 is enabled on the Core Cordova plugins tab:

      

Rebuild your app.

The workaround to apply for JQM or Ionic 1 apps:

  1. Under the Project > App Settings > Resources tab, select the latest Appery.io library version available:

 

 

2. Under the Project > App Settings > iOS Binary tab, select the latest Cordova iOS version available (6.0.0.): 

 

 

 

 

3. Under the Project > App Settings > Core Cordova plugins tab, enable WKWebviewEngineAllowFileAccessPlugin:

 

 

 

 

4. Check that you don’t have edited files on the Source tab

Then, scroll down to locate the Appery.io cordova-plugin-ionic-webview plugin and enable it:

 

Cordova WKWebView Engine and Cordova-plugin-ionic-webview plugin plugins may be unchecked if Cordova iOS 6.0.0. is selected.

Important note: please be informed, that this workaround might not work if your app is older that one year.

For the apps built earlier, switching to a different browser engine might be needed which might result in some other issues that should be considered separately in every particular case.

Also, we would like to remind you that you are always welcome to contact us if you have further questions about this or any other Appery.io related issue.
