Then I just check if the configuration says the version is enabled or not -- I have an activity that I launch that forces the user to upgrade. I check in the only two places the app can be launched from externally (my default launcher activity and an intent-handling activity). Since Remote Config works on a cache basis, it won''t immediately capture "disabled" versions of the app if the requisite time hasn''t passed for the cache to be invalidated, but that is at most 67 hours if you''re going by their recommended cache expiration value.
For forcing the app user to update if an update is available in the market, you should first check the app version on the market and compare it with the version of the app on the device. If they are different, it may be an update available. In this post I wrote down the code for getting the current version of market and current version on the device and compare them together. I also showed how to show the update dialog and redirect the user to the update page. Please visit this link: https:///a/88975587/5975996 Just make sure that in the dialog you only show the user update button and don''t show him the cancel button. In this case he will be forced to update, before he can use the app.
you can do this by doing a match between a version number that is kept on app in a variable and similarly the current app version is kept on server side and each time user opens the app the first request should be send to check that if it founds matching do nothing simply let the user use your app otherwise fire an intent to the google playstore or open a webview window to your app((" https:///store/apps/details?id=package_name ", ''_system'', ''location=yes'') ) and there they will automatically have the button asking for update that''s what google playstore does for you if you dont have automatic updates on.
It 8767 s a good thing then that the folks at Facebook HQ are not resting on their laurels and continue to improve the Facebook app for Android. Take the case of the current update (version ), which was just released and is available from Google Play. It 8767 s a pretty simple update with no new features introduced. What the patch does is fix crashes that some users experienced after logging out or when the app remained inactive for long periods.
To get started, open the Messenger app, open a group chat, then tap the plus sign button in the bottom left corner of the conversation. Find the payment icon ($), and then tap on it. After that, you can then choose who to send or request money from. You can easily select everyone in the group, or just a few members. Then enter the amount of money you’d like to send or request, specify what the money is for, then tap Request.
Faithful as ever to its weekly update schedule, Instagram has just added two new features that are sure to set tongues wagging, each one for different reasons. The new version of Instagram lets you add polls to your Stories and also add the option to share this disappearing content to your Facebook Stories as well. Undoubtedly it''s one of the most significant updates to come out in a long time.
Facebook is the most popular social media site on planet Earth. It has over a billion registered users, most of which are active on almost a daily basis. Unfortunately, the official Facebook app is a data using, resource hogging, battery draining catastrophe of an app that a lot of people don 8767 t want. It 8767 s always good to have options so we 8767 re going to take a look at the best Facebook apps for Android. If these aren 8767 t doing it for you, we have a second list of Facebook alternatives here that 8767 s a little bit more in-depth !
Of course, not everyone will be happy with the way Facebook works on Android. For starters, posts in the news feed don''t appear in the order they were added , which can get frustrating if you want to see what you''re friends are doing now, rather than seeing just ''top stories'' first. To access the ''Most Recent'' feature, you need to navigate to it through the menu on the right of the screen.
There''s also Haha, Wow, Sad and Angry, which compentently cover the gamut of human emotional responses to stimuli. Facebook''s Zuckerburg remains keen to limit users'' abilities to express negativity, however, as the much-requested Dislike button remains elusive. Luckily we have words to express just how much we dislike what our peers are sharing, so we can just continue leaving mean-spirited comments, instead.
Google don''t provide any option for version tracking like that so you would have to roll your own. A simple web service to return the current live version that your app can check would be sufficient. You can then update the version and the app will know it is outdated. I would only recommend using this to let your users know there is an update more quickly than depending on Google Play. It should not really be used to prevent the app from working, just to prompt the user to update.
Facebook has been working long and hard to create successful apps that stem from the social network''s existing services. That''s what they tried to do with Events from Facebook , a tool that compiled the events in your area and ones that your contacts were interested in. Yes we''re talking in the past tense here. The app did not experience the success Facebook had hoped for, and has since been replaced by a new app which will try to succeed where Events could not: Facebook Local takes some of the features from the old events app and now also recommends places nearby where you can eat, go for a drink, or attend an event or activity.
Despite its flaws and the complaints of its legions of users, there 8767 s no doubt that the Facebook Android app is one of the most downloaded and popular apps available on Google Play. I mean, who among the Android users you know has not installed and not used the Facebook Android app? Nobody, I guess? That only goes to show that, despite its flaws and inconsistencies, Facebook for Android is a must have for most mobile users.
Zuckerberg summarised the release by again dismissing the rumours that a phone would be revealed , stating of such prospects and their current release: 8775 We 8767 re not building a phone and we 8767 re not building an operating system, but we 8767 re building much more than an app. We spend our lives sharing and connecting. What would it feel like if our phones were designed around people, not apps? 8776
The latest update to the Facebook app brings with it the power to control what you see on your news feed. Within the new news feed settings menu you can view the people, pages. and groups that you''ve seen the most activity from in your news feed. If these people are starting to get on your nerves you can simply unfollow them so their posts won''t show up in your feed. Don''t worry, it''s easy to see who you''ve already unfollowed and start re-following them again.
Beginning on the 8766 main screen 8767 of the phone, users will instantly be able to see 8766 notifications, messages and photos 8767 without needing to access the free downloadable Facebook app, with site founder Mark Zuckerberg claiming that the app offers 8766 a new category of experiences 8767 based directly on a phone 8767 s homepage. Such features (along with updates being viewed through the 8766 homescreen 8767 and 8766 lockscreen 8767 ) include 8766 likes 8767 being submittable through double-tapping the notice on-screen, and a new service called Chat Heads.
In a recent update, Facebook is making it easier to share photos from your phone just tap the Photo button on the News Feed to get started. Facebook will show you all of the photos on your phone, with the most recent ones at the top. Tap any and all photos you want to upload and you''ll see a number on each image, which corresponds to the order in which it will be uploaded and displayed in your post.
SMS messages are now being integrated into the Facebook Messenger app, Facebook announced on its website. Instead of using a separate messaging app, users now have the option of including these texts in the Messenger app. SMS messages will appear in purple while Facebook messages will appear in the traditional blue. In addition, SMS in messenger supports rich content such as stickers, emojis, GIFS and more.
