Let’s discuss in detail about the key improvements of phpFox Mobile App 1.6, our very first release of 2020 for your social network or online communities.

Map View on Events & Marketplace

Users usually want to browse and look for events and listings in specific areas. And, it is obviously more convenient for everyone to view them on a map. Now users on your communities can easily find or navigate to different events and listings as per their preferred location. Hit map button from the bottom once you are in Events or Marketplace to navigate and browse through the results to show the locations of the results in real-time.

Log in with Apple ID

All iOS users have their Apple IDs and it is very useful to have an option to log in with their Apple IDs. And, similar to the Facebook Login, it’s fast, easy and very secured.

Media Share Extension from Gallery

People now can share a moment directly from your photo gallery rather than uploading it within the app; it makes your sharing experience much faster and easier than before. You would find your phpFox app in the list of shareable apps while you try to share the photo directly from the photo gallery or web browser.

Moreover, we do have many other incremental updates to enhance user experiences on mobile apps, include but not limited to: 

  • Able to detect the user’s device language preference and display accordingly. If your site doesn’t support that language, then it would display the default language.
  • Support In-App Purchases for subscription feature.
  • Supported swipe down to close the Action Menu.
  • Updated library for AdMob
  • Users are now allowed to make mass actions such as select all or make multiple selections
  • Able to instant message the sellers in the marketplace by hitting the ‘Contact Seller’ button from the respective listing. 
  • Supported search category, our new app filters out other categories while you search in a specific category.
  • Supported copying and pasting text
  • Apply  the primary color of app for background of the status bar while the app is loading
