DroidScript v1.32

Announcement by Dave Smart 15th December 2015

Hi Guys, 

I've just released a new feature packed version of DroidScript on Google Play and we hope that you will like it!.

The most notable changes are as follows:- 

  • Support for a new (optional) build.json file which gives more control over the build process.
  • Cookie support in WebViews and HTML Apps (allows user id and login states to be maintained).
  • New app.CreatePhoneState() and app.GetSSID() methods which should allow context/location sensitive functionality to be added to your Apps much like the popular 'Tasker' App.  
  • Added support for Google Play subscriptions. 
  • New txt.Log( msg, options ) method which is useful for quickly outputting data during testing and experimentation (the options 'red', 'blue' and 'green' can be used to change the log line color).  See the 'Phone State' sample for a demo of this method
  • The addition of the DROIDSCRIPT PREMIUM subscription service and its associated benefits.
  • Added new device browser tab to WiFi IDE which allows browsing/download/upload to anywhere on the internal sdcard [premium only]

Special thanks should also go to Steve Garman for documenting some more components.

* Please be aware that the introduction of this Premium Service is ABSOLUTELY necessary for the survival this product, we simply won't be able to continue with out it!  So please support us by subscribing and encourage others to do the same.  Thank you :) *

Note: You can cancel your premium subscription at any time inside the Google Play App on your device.

!!!!!!  DON'T FORGET to 'Reinstall' your APKBuilder or you builds won't work properly !!!!!!!!!
