This screen picks up the most advanced configuration options of the App. This screen can be found in the top menu of 480interactive, inside “Tools”.
In this screen, you will find:
- Application ID
- Download Resources on-demand
- Include Web Export
- Index Sort Type
- Android Back Button
- Minimum version of iOS app and Android
- IOS and Android installation URL
This field is not editable and it is the unique code of the App. It is only used internally by our technicians to differentiate the App.
This number tells the App if there is a new version to update the content. This field is automatically managed, so it should not be modified.
Download resources on-demand
This box enables the download of resources, such as icons, when the user needs them.
This option reduces app load times and data consumption in case the user is using a mobile data connection.
Include web export
This box is activated automatically once you activate the option “Publish my App” of your App.
If this box is checked, the necessary files to display the App in a web browser will be included in the Export folder.
Therefore, when you upload the folder to a hosting to generate the IPA and APK files, you can also access to the App from a browser (Chrome, Firefox, Opera).
Keep in mind that the web version of your App may be more limited than the App itself.
If you do not have the option “Publish my App” activated, you will not be able to export the App with this box checked.
Index sort type
This option defines how contents will be sorted in a Kiosk App.
If you select the option called “Manual”, contents will be sorted as they appear in the 480interactive content tree.
However, if you select “Newest first” or “Oldest first” instead of “Manual” option, contents will be sorted based on the publication date of each content.
The publication date is editable and you can find it in the “Advanced” tab of each content.
Android back button
Defines the behavior of the “Back” button on Android devices.
Default behavior: Exits the publication or the content you are in and returns to the kiosk.
Go to previous page: If you are in an interactive publication made with InDesign, show the previous page. If you are at the first, leave the publication.
Minimum version of iOS app and Android
This field is used once you have published your App and you want that users access a specific version.
Imagine that you have just published version 2.0 of your App because in version 1.0 there was a critical error.
In this field, you would put 2.0 since you do not want users to use 1.0. Once this is done, all users in 1.0 will have to upgrade to 2.0 in order to see the content.
IOS and Android installation URL
This field is used together with the minimum version.
Here you have to put the link to App Store and Google Play of your App. When the user in a lower version opens the App, you will be redirected to the corresponding store so they can update it.
