What's new at GoodBarber? March 2019

Written by Mathieu Fancello  on  Wednesday 3 April 2019

Last year, Google warned developers of a technical change in sending and receiving push notifications.
GoodBarber took this change into account by updating the Android engine of your apps.

Fire Cloud Messaging, the system used to send and receive push notifications will therefore be the only system in effect from April 11, 2019.

You probably missed the announcement by Google and it’s perfectly normal. It’s GoodBarber's job to make sure that your Android app adapts to Google's regular updates (and Apple's iOS app).

You can find below a summary of the developments and updates made during March, 2019

New mockups to preview your Splash screens

Written by Muriel Santoni  on  Tuesday 19 February 2019

Did you know that a 3 seconds delay causes you to lose half of your users? A figure to reflect upon, especially when every other second you lose another 7% of your users.

During the crucial time it takes your app to open you could lose the attention of your users. Even though your GoodBarber app or PWA is build to launch quickly, you shouldn't overlook the importance of this General Design section : the Splashscreen.

It allows you to display an image, message or logo while your app is launching therefore catching the eye of your users and improving your chances to keep them interested until your content is displayed.

As you can see it is essential to take the time to perfect your Splash screen, its content as much as its design. If the content falls onto your creativity, we are putting our best features forward to help you with the design. Nowadays with so many different devices on the market, it is difficult to imagine and picture how your Splash screen will adapt to various screen sizes. We are now proposing different options to preview your splashscreen.

What's new at GoodBarber? November 2018

Written by Mathieu Fancello  on  Wednesday 5 December 2018

As you know, at GoodBarber, we like to give you choices. Once again this month, our teams were working on a specific option, which has been talked about for a few months following Google’s pricing changes. Now you can choose the map provider that will be used to display all the maps of your PWA: Google Maps or Mapbox.

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.

Written by GoodBarber Team  on  Monday 24 September 2018

A lot of people find the idea of changing the domain on their GoodBarber project appealing as it allows them to build a stronger image without the presence of another brand. GoodBarber doesn't sell domain names, you'll have to purchase one from an external provider if you want to take advantage of this option, and you'll then be able to configure it from your provider's platform and install it in your GoodBarber backend as you'll be using our servers. 

Setting up a new domain name can look a bit daunting for first-timers, but it's no big deal. Take a look at some basic info you need to know and some of the most common issues users struggle with to avoid common pitfalls.
