these are some of the screenshots to give you a glimpse

How to Manage Menu Icons?

AndroApp supports FontAwesome icons and by default we try to show the best possible icons ourselves, but obviously you might want to override those icons for some of your links.

to change the icons

  1. install Menu Icons plugin on your wordpress site, this plugin has more than 1 lakh active installs
  2. Go to Appearance->Menu from your wordpress admin dashboard
  3. Select FontAwesome under menu icon settings
  4. Select the Android App menu which you have selected in AndroApp->Configure tab
  5. Expand the menu for which you want to update the icon
  6. Click on icon: Select link
  7. Select the icon from the popup
  8. And click on Save Menu button at bottom

Note:

  • If you are using the same menu on your website, than you might want to change the menu icon settings to show/hide icons on your website
  • It might be possible that some of the icons are not supported in app, in that case, use a different icon
  • If you have a version older than 10.00 on google play store, than you need to publish a new apk  – so create a new build, test it and publish it to play store.

Added Slideshow option

In the last release we have introduced a new post content type, i.e. Slideshow

What is this option about?

Androapp provides you the ability to load post detail page content in different ways, like pre processed, post processed, load as url already, with this new option, when a user clicks on feed image, post’s images will directly open as a slide show, like below

How to turn on this feature?

  1. login to your wordpress admin dashboard
  2. go to Androapp->Configure tab
  3. Scroll down to Post Content Type section and select slide show
  4. Select Failover post content type – if there are some images in the post than it will open the slideshow, post content will not be visible, if there are no images, than it will fail back to Failover post content type

Note:

This feature is available from App version 9.00 onwards – so if you are on the older version, you need to publish a new apk to google play store, also you should give enough time for new version to distribute among your existing users before you enable slideshow.

Google Play Upload Failed due to Signing Issue

Google has recently added a functionality to manage App Signing, where google gives you certificates to manage signing certificates for your app.

But We are androapp currently does not support individual signing certificates, so you might come across the below error while trying to upload the apk generated by us.

Upload failed

You uploaded an APK that is signed with a key that is also used to sign APKs that are delivered to users. Because you are enrolled in App Signing, you should sign your APK with a new key before you upload it.

How to fix?

Currently google does not provide any option to disable App Signing after you enable it, so you should create a new App entry with App Signing disabled.

When you will try to upload new production apk, you will be asked to Enroll for App Signing, please select Not Now
