Are you concerned about:
- I want all the feature of my full website in my Mobile Apps?
- I want all SocialEngineAddOns plugins of my website to be available in Mobile Apps till the time SocialEngineAddOns releases their compatibility with Mobile Apps?
- I want all 3rd-party plugins of my website to be available in Mobile Apps?
Worry not, answer to all these 3 questions is the "WebView" feature that we have implemented in our Native Mobile Apps in nice, robust manner.
Currently, all the SocialEngine core features and core plugins are integrated with our Native Mobile Apps. Thus, to provide the un-integrated SocialEngineAddOns plugins and any other 3rd party plugins, the "WebView" concept has been developed in our apps.
Wondering what WebView is? WebView allows you to view web elements inside your mobile app. Thus, opening of any link in WebView will show its browser view inside your app, hence making your users believe that to be a part of your mobile app.
Refer to the below video to see how you can create a new Menu-Item in the Mobile App Dashboard: https://youtu.be/ceR-CSaTXss
Once you save the changes, a new icon with specific name and icon will start displaying in the App Dashboard. Tapping on this will open the 3rd-party plugin's view in the app:
So, this is how our / other 3rd-party plugins can be easily integrated with our Native Mobile Apps.
Note: While you're adding a new menu-item to your app's dashboard, users who are using your app at that moment will need to restart your app to view that newly created menu-item in app's dashboard.
Webview is available in both our Android and iOS Mobile Applications.
