Enjoy your New Spring Enjoying our New Release Features

The spring of 2022 is very special for all of us and we, at Appery.io, would like to make this spring release (rolled out last weekend) enjoyable for all of you as well.

With this mission in heart, we are excited to offer you some very special improvements to our Visual App Builder that we believe will make things significantly easier and more elegant developing your mobile apps with Appery.io:

  • the first and the most asked feature will be definitely appreciated by those who prefer working with the OUTLINE view: from now on, you will be able to use the old yet simple and reliable “Drag & Drop” to arrange the components on the screen of your mobile app:

What is more: you will be even warned if trying to do something that cannot be implemented for this particular component:

  • also, the Appery.io UI Components family now has one more member, Divider, that can be used to to separate other screen items:

  • yet another improvement was introduced for more UI components like Card, Checkbox, Datetime, etc.: they can now also be easily styled from under the PROPERTIES > Styles tab. (You might have already had a chance to evaluate the similar functionality for some UI components introduced with our Christmas release).
  • two more events were added to the Form component: Form value change and Form status change:

 

  • the next minor but hopefully useful feature is added to the Input component to make login procedure for your app users simpler and less stressfull. Just set the input Type property to Password and select the option to show the password being typed in (set it to True):

  • and the last but not least: you can now make good use of quite a few predefined Push Notification services: when in the visual App Builder, simply click the CREATE NEW button and selct the needed Appery.io backend push service(s) to import it (them) from under the Backend Services section:

Have Appery-related questions? Ask them on Stackoverflow!

Dear Appery.io Users,

Since recently, our customers have started complaining about issues with registration/login into our forum. Therefore, we have decided to introduce yet another open channel where you are free to ask any Appery.io-related question(s) you might have: Stackoverflow. 

Stackoverflow is one of the most popular and renown platforms where anybody can ask for an advice on any programming issue. Where hundreds of users find answers to their questions daily and thousands of experts are happy to provide their colleagues with useful recommendations and examples.

Is is truly a huge community and from now on, we encourage you to post your questions (like those on Appery.io Platform, App Builder, Appery.io plug-ins, etc.) there instead of using forum.

Please make sure you use the tag <Appery> or <appery.io> while posting so that our experts from Support Team (as well as other users that can be of help) could answer them ASAP to our mutual satisfaction:

 

We hope this will help to remove any barriers to effective communication and make getting professional help as easy and productive as possible.

And as usual, we offer more ways for you to get help. Please check this link to learn how to reach to our Support Team for help.

Lots of love on St. Valentine’s Day!
