Especially, for those who are using our phpFox Neutron Pro, there are 5 new great apps (released together with phpFox 4.5) on phpFox Store which are FREE for you! Here are they:

1. CKEditor App

CKEditor – A Web-based HTML text editor – is a text editor to be used inside web pages. This application will replace text area fields with a visual HTML editor, usually called a WYSIWYG editor. So no more painful when editing Blog Entry, Forum Post, etc.
Admin can easily turn this ON/OFF or replace by any other 3rd party Rich Editor Application.

2. Backup & Restore

Being a site owner you should have seen servers fail, misconfiguration and loss of data on more than one occasion, haven't you?
Backup your phpFox site fully, create as many backups as you need, choose the files to be backed up and distribute to other servers. Then restoring a phpFox site from backup if anything goes wrong. Everything is quite simple with Backup and Restore application.

3. RESTful API 

The phpFox platform aims to be a fully-fledged application framework, so we need strong APIs that is an easy-to-use, easy-to-understand and well-tested framework.
This application provides an easy-to-use RESTfull API, available via HTTP. So you can allow other applications to securely access your site’s data via simple JSON format, including users, posts and more. Retrieving or updating data is as simple as sending an HTTP request.

4. Single Device Login

There is a discussion of how important of preventing concurrent logins to disallow users from staying logged into the same account from multiple devices. So this application allows admin to limit login to one device at a time for a user. 
Per configuration, one user won't be allowed to login if same user login from another device. Or they will receive the notification if there is another login from a different device.

5. Shoutbox

One of the simple definition of Shoutbox – A small chat box provides a chat-like feature that allows site members to quickly leave messages on your community. phpFox shoutbox, in simplest form, is lists of short messages, possibly with information about their authors.

As these amazing apps are available for phpFox Pro license only, if you are using phpFox Lite or Basic licenses, please consider upgrading to phpFox Pro license.
