Meteotemplate - android app
« on: February 13, 2019, 06:16:29 AM »
Hello,

I am trying to build an app (for Android) to access Meteotemplate sites and provide additional features to visitors like notifications :



A beta version is available here : https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.meteotemplate.meteotemplate
It would help a lot if those brave users who install the app can send me their feedback or bug reports.

Cheers,

Pol-Brieuc

I use MT for my website.
It however is not listed. How do I get it listed for use?
Also, it doesn't use GPS properly. May need to set that as a prompt so we can allow it easier.

Hello Jonny,

Your site has been added to the list of beta testers for the App.
If you already installed the app on your phone, go to settings (upper top corner) /Data&Sync and clean the cache to see your site in the list.
If you don't have the app yet, download it from Google Play : https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.meteotemplate.meteotemplate
Do not forget to download and install the App plugin  on your site  :  https://www.elspinars.es/dev/appPlugin.zip
If you plan to send notifications to your users, do also install the Triggers Plugin : https://www.elspinars.es/dev/triggers.zip
There is also a small block you can install on the custom version of your mobile page to promote the app : https://www.elspinars.es/dev/appBlock.zip
All is available from https://www.elspinars.es/dev/app.php
I would need more details about the GPS issue you mentionned. When you first install the app, there is an authorization request to use your device's location. If rejected, the app will use a dummy one. You may be able to authorize the location usage again by going to the app settings (on your device, not in the app).
Feel free to ask any question via email or on the forum and do not hesitate to report any bug/issue or to share any idea you have to make this experimental application reach the next stage.

Cheers,

Pol-Brieuc
