Mobile Configuration Documentation

Alert View

With alert view you can quickly notify users of important or urgent application information. This configuration is for alert view shown during validation of input for web service parameters. When user supplies no or wrong input for web service parameter an alert is shown with configuration provided by you here.

API Cache

In order to shorten data access times and reduce latency we maintain internal cache for saving response from online url and save for reuse instead of downloading them every time. But in doing this the date file gets saved in application data in turn reducing phone memory so cache has to be cleared once in a while to improve memory performance. This configuration is for API cache settings.

App Settings

This section is for application settings that would be reflecting in whole application, like base url for all web services used in the app.

Default Page

Default page is the first screen that appears when app launches.

Image cache

In order to shorten data access times and reduce latency we maintain internal cache for saving downloaded images from online url and save for reuse instead of downloading them every time. But in doing this the image gets saved in application data in turn reducing phone memory so cache has to be cleared once in a while to improve memory performance. This configuration is for image cache settings.

Loading View

Loading view is shown to user indicating that some background task is being performed and it may take some time, like data download from web service URL. Loading view is rounded corner view with a circular activity view in the center, which spins to indicate loading process. Loading view is added to the center of the screen.

Map

Map view is a diagrammatic representation of an area of land or sea showing physical features, cities, roads, etc. Use this setting, if you want to use google maps in your whole application instead of native maps.

Pull To Refresh

This is for configuring an animating view that appears when a table view or grid view control are pulled down to refresh (reload their content). This view gets animated at the top, until the refresh has completed. At the time wheel disappears after refreshing, the table view or grid view bounces back. User needs to pull down to a threshold to confirm refresh and release it for initiating refresh.

Side Panel

Side panel is a slide out mechanism similar to the ones available in Facebook app. User can choose to reveal the navigation at any time, while still seeing their current context. Revealing can be from left, right or both.

Splash Screen

Splash screen is the first screen you see when launching an application. It disappears after the main screen of the app is loaded. The primary purpose of splash screen is to let user know your app is loading and give user an introductory screen showing your brand. Splash screen is especially important for apps that take longer time to launch. Perceptually, it gives a better user experience. This section is for configuring splash screen for your app.
