You may not know it, but recently Google has changed its pricing policy for its Map services. Previously completely free, the use of Google Maps is now subject to billing, and it may impact you if you reach a certain rate of use on your PWA.

There are not a lot of map providers in the market and new uses are giving location data more and more value. If those services were previously free, pricing is now applied in most cases. With this in mind, it was essential for us to give you the opportunity to choose the provider that best suits you between these two market institutions.

This morning, the technicians at OVH (our internet access provider) were working on the data center switches where the GoodBarber and WMaker servers are located. An incorrect configuration was installed on these machines, triggering a bug. The result was that our internet access was immediately cut off.

Apple devices are constantly evolving and pushing the limits of extraordinary user experience. The end of 2017 marked a turning point in Apple smartphone design with the release of the iPhone X, because apart from incredible resolution, this new iPhone boasts an ultra-immersive screen, covering almost the entire surface of the smartphone.

A few years ago, there was no doubt that native apps were the best way to get content out there on mobile. A native app is made to work exclusively on your phone, in the most integrated way possible. However, since about two years ago, Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) have been disrupting the norms that native established. Certain big-time apps like Facebook or AirBnB have changed their minds on their choice of technology for offering the best user experience on mobile.

You're well aware of all the advantages and potential Progressive Web Apps have to offer. If you've already created your PWA or you're planning to do so, this article is for you.
GoodBarber allows you to access statistics concerning traffic generated by your PWA that will allow you to better understand your users' behavior and to adapt accordingly.
Two types of stats are available to you: internal statistics, accessible in your back office once your PWA is published, and external statistics.
Let's take a deeper look.

This month, we worked on two points concerning PWAs that came directly from your suggestions.

They are received by users directly in their web browser.
This feature is supported by the majority of recent browsers, and the list of them is growing every day.
If you've subscribed to a native GoodBarber offer and you've activated the PWA version of your app, you have the option to send push notifications to your native iOS, Android, and PWA users.
Being able to directly contact all of your users regardless of the device they're using is a significant advantage.
On the other hand, in some cases it can be a good idea to adapt your communication based on the type of user.
Certain messages may only apply to web users (to get them to install the application for example), or only native iOS users (maybe to inform them of an update that only concerns iPhones).
Basically, it's good to have the option to target users based on their platform, and now this is possible.

This is a huge advantage in terms of visibility and audience acquisition in most cases, however in certain situations, it can actually be a setback.
Maybe you want to take advantage of all the perks of a progressive web app, but for its content to be available only to a private audience, like in the case of enterprise apps?
Now it's possible, thanks to a new feature:

Personal data security has been a major issue in 2018, so Facebook's solutions are not surprising. This will have some impact on your GoodBarber application, if you use a Facebook connector in one of your pages.

For those who aren't familiar with this add-on, it's an audio player that allows you to broadcast an M3U feed and to display metadata associated with the track being played, such as the title, name of the artist, and album cover.

With GoodBarber 4.5 , we bet everything on your productivity. We thought about the best way for you to take advantage of the power of GoodBarber as intuitively as possible.
One of the biggest changes is the separation of the Content and Design menus.
Now, you are managing your content in one dedicated menu. Thus, the structure of your app is immediately shown when you enter the Content menu. The panel allows you to see, at a glance, the organization of your pages.
Moreover, to be able to edit your content from the beginning to end on the same screen, a new Content tab has been created at the top of the screen when you select the page you want to work on. When you click on that tab, you go from the page preview to the editor, on a full page. Create, modify, and organize your items from this new space, and preview your changes with one click.
Let’s review the new way to create your content together.
