Andromo App Maker for Android v5.0.13 Released

Andromo App Maker for Android version 5.0.13 has been released.

Here is a list of changes in this version:

  • Added some item styles with a new layout behaviour similar to the “button grid” dashboard style from Andromo v4 (“Grid: square image + side title”, “Grid: square image + side title auto-color”, “Grid: square image + side title subtitle” and “Grid: square image + side title subtitle auto-color”). Note: these styles are automatically adjusted when used with a background image. If a background image exists, the items will be slightly translucent and use a different divider type so the background image remains subtly visible behind the item.
  • Improved the look of some grid styles when a background image is used.
  • Improved the quality of images in the Photo Gallery activity when one dimension of the source image is slightly larger than 1024 pixels.
  • Changed how the audio controls are displayed on right-to-left language devices so they’re consistent with other audio apps.
  • Added support for sms: and smsto: in Website, Custom Page, and HTML Archive activities.
  • Made it so tel: URIs are automatically escaped to preserve special characters such as # for links in Website, Custom Page, and HTML Archive activities.
  • Added a new “Add Activity” dropup button below the Project > Activities list. Reduces the need to scroll up to the top of the page for those people with lots of activities in their projects.
  • Increased the number of build jobs you can queue to 4 for Professional Plan subscribers.
  • Changed the minimum time between builds of the same project to 15 minutes.
  • Fixed the account username signup message to read “Minimum 4 characters”.

  • Thanks for the new styles! I think they will come in handy on some of my apps. However, we now have to wait 15 minutes between builds? Ouch!

  • We've had a lot of people just spamming the build queue every 10 minutes with the same app. So, we're trying 15 minutes between builds of the same project only.
  • And Pro users can now queue up twice as many projects for building...
  • love the new old button grid. Thank you very much.
  • People are spamming? 

    Why not go after the ones abusing the system rather than making a blanket change that effects the entire community? It was already agonizing having to wait for the next attempt to download in order to see what the app looks like when tweaks are made.

    Maybe it's time to think about a better method to see what the app would look like without constantly having to download it.
  • Thank you very much B)

    What I do would also be considered spamming according to your explanation:

    Build1: Make a No Ads version. Test it, fix problems/broken links in the project
    Build2: Make new No Ads version. Test it, found OK.
    Build3: Make Google version
    Build4: Make Amazon version
    Build5: Build Samsung version
    Build6: Make other version, possibly with other ad networks, for alternative stores.

    Your system would now delay this procedure so much. But this is not spamming, This is normal usage of the server resources.

    Try to punish the ones who changed nothing in the project yet keep rebuilding. Don't punish all of us please.

  • Thanks for the feedback @anteos . I’m keeping an eye on the build queue and we will make adjustments and/or revert back after collecting data for a few days.
  • Hi Team,

    You please put some strong captcha or similar to that for to avoid spammers.  Lot more options are there to avoid spammers.

    Putting 15 minutes wait time is too much. I done some changes to html activity and after the build came up with error and again I need to wait for 15 minutes and I need to be simply sitting and watch the clock to complete the 15 minutes. 

    Please remove the wait time as I have very less time to work in andromo and during this time I am facing this wait time. 

    Thanks for the understating.

    Regards,
    Senthil

  • Another email from Google telling me to upgrade to Firebase:

    In order to devote more time and attention to improving FCM, today we’re announcing that you must upgrade to FCM in the next year. The GCM server and client APIs are deprecated and will be removed as soon as April 11, 2019. We recommend you upgrade sooner rather than later so you can start taking advantage of the new features in FCM today.

  • That refers to their cloud messaging product... we will deal with that in advance of the deadline.

    @Colin - Any thoughts as to adding more monetization options. How about working with like enhance? That would add endless options for us.
