  • 6/11/2011: Mobile Application Update from Dev. Team

    Hi all,

    Newer versions of the Android and iPhone client applications are currently in the final stages of testing and will be available to you soon via the updated Mobile Publisher. Besides fixing a lot of reported issues, a few new features will be added. Some of them include advanced Google Analytics integration for your apps (Android and iPhone), support for HTTPS sites, ability to install to SD cards, support for thread prefixes and advanced forum passwords, and many more.

    For vBulletin 3; an updated mobile API package will be released and required to support the new clients.
    For vBulletin 4.1.4; no update will be required and this incorporates support for all new functionality and features.

    In additon, we are working towards delivering much faster updates / releases and improved general communication for the Mobile application product.

    thanks for the update. question, i manually patched some code to fix the issue with registration not working w/ captcha verfication on in vb3.8.7...

    prior to doing any other updates, should i "undo" the manual fix i made for this in the API Startup? $vbulletin->options['hv_type'] = 0;

        this workaround is for the API, we are also releasing a new MAPI package for vb.com with all the patches (registration included)

          no, we didn't test the app with iOS since it's only in beta 1. We'll wait for a more stable release of the OS

                I just noticed that the mobile API has been updated to 1.2 already in the download section. I have downloaded it and updated the files, however as for the mobile app I have no clue if this has been updated to 1.1.2 already. I tried to recompile and checked the linked instructions but it still says 1.0.1.

                Not sure if its worth the time to do an ad-hoc install just to check. Can anyone confirm? I do hope that instructions on how to update will be published as well.

                    Ah.. thanks for the info Steve. Ok I hope I didn't break anything with updating to API 1.2 for the 1.0.1 mobile app. Would it be better to revert back to API 1.1?

                            I want to report another bug but I don't know where to post it. Into the CMS articles list, the author name is showed also if the author has choose to be hidden. Please fix this, thank you.
