Please note that you will need to upgrade to AppFurnace Player 2.0 to be able to continue using http://www.appfurnace.com.
The AppFurnace Player has had a major upgrade on both platforms.
During the upgrade process you may have issues downloading and running your apps. To resolve these problems try the following:
- Log into AppFurnace.com, and open the app.
- Make a small change, such as moving a button to the left and putting it back again.
- Press the Save button
- Return to AppFurnace Player, and Update the app.
- If you still have trouble, try deleting AppFurnace Player, and reinstalling via the App Store.
- If this doesn't work please let us know.
- Android users can now view the debug log, just like on iPhone. Press the Menu button and then choose 'Log'.
- You can now hide the AppFurnace Logo (shown in the top-right). This is useful for taking screenshots to add to your App Store listing.
- To do this, press the AppFurnace Logo, and choose Hide Button from the popup menu.
- To put the button back, simple shake the phone. You'll need to do this to quit the app and return to the list screen.
- The app now supports iPad.
- Note: A result of this is that the x2 viewing feature while running iPhone AppFurnace apps in AppFurnace player is no longer available. We hope to address this in a future version.
- The AppFurnace platform can now build iPad apps. This is a premium feature, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
New Audio Playback System
- We've added a brand new audio playback system called audiochannel that makes creating smoothly-fading multi-layered audio apps far easier and more reliable.
- The old audio system is still available.
New Features via Phonegap 2.1
- The AppFurnace platform has been upgraded to Phonegap 2.1 giving a host of new features, including:
- Access to Photos
- We have re-written and improved the Code API Documentation
- It includes the new capabilities added via the upgrade.
- New default styles. New projects created with AppFurnace 4.0.0 will include new styles for Buttons and other widgets.
- To make it easier to work with pages containing many or overlapping widgets, we've added a new drop-down control to the Properties box where you can select any widget on the page.
- If the widget has a code name, this is displayed in the list. If not, you'll see the text or image name used on the widget.
- You can now switch styles on an existing widget. Previously if you wanted to switch a widget to another pre-defined style, you had to delete the widget and create a new one.
- Now you can press the new Switch Styles button and select an existing style from the list to apply.
