Facebook restricts its API access — Calendar and Photo pages now work differently

Written by Muriel Santoni  on  Monday 23 July 2018

A few months ago the Cambridge Analytica scandal occurred. This British company, specializing in large scale data analysis and communications consulting, was accused of using 87 million Facebook users' data without their knowledge for political marketing purposes
 
Facebook, who ended up in the middle of all the turmoil, made the decision to entirely remodel its policy concerning the protection of its users' data. The goal of this approach was obviously to reinforce security, especially with regards to user data shared with third party applications. 

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.

GoodBarber 4.5 – A new way to manage your content

Written by Muriel Santoni  on  Wednesday 13 June 2018

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.

GoodBarber 4.5: speed and productivity to create the apps of the future

Written by Jerome Granados  on  Tuesday 29 May 2018

GoodBarber receives a major update today. GoodBarber 4.5 is the most advanced version we have ever created. It has been designed to make you more productive, and its speed performance has been increased.

"Multi-platform" users are a majority in almost every country of the world (source: comScore MMX Multi-Platform, Dec 2017) The challenge to offer a perfect UX, both on mobile and desktop, has never been so important. Your users are expecting to find you everywhere, in the Stores, on the Web, from their smartphone, their tablet and their computer.

This multi-channel presence is not a luxury, but a necessity. However, few have the expertise, the human, technical and financial resources to offer their users an  experience that rivals the one proposed by big names on the web.

As an App Builder pioneer, GoodBarber has always given you the opportunity to be at the forefront, well before anyone else. In 2011, it was with the creation of native apps, only offered at that time by a small niche of developers; and since 2017, it's with the creation of Progressive Web Apps, a concept that feels like the renewal of the web and the future of apps.

4.5 is a version that consolidates the versatility of GoodBarber to create the apps of the future. Every time, GoodBarber faces a double challenge. Design the tool that creates cross-platform apps and imagine the interface that lets you take advantage of the power of this tool as intuitively as possible.
