Test menu of My GoodBarber App

On the Test menu, choose to preview either the native version of your app or the Progressive Web App (PWA) .

The "My GoodBarber app" is where you can preview (in-app) the changes you made in your back office BEFORE those modifications are visible to your final users.

It's therefore very handy if your app has already been published on Google Play or the Apple store and you want to see the changes you've made before saving them for all of your users.

1. Native preview of your apps

Android
On the Test page, select "Native Preview" to directly access the preview of the native version.
Once your test is complete, use the "return" button on your phone in order to exit the preview and return to the Test page on the My GoodBarber app. 

iOS:
On the Test page, select "Native Preview" to access the preview of the native iOS version. 
A screen will indicate the procedure to follow to close the application after you've finished testing it: "To close your application, pinch the screen."
Touch the screen to access the app. 
Once you complete your test, pinch the screen to return to the Test page on the My GoodBarber app. 


2. AdHoc version

There are a certain number of limitations on the My GoodBarber app, compared to the final version that will be published in the App store.
On the My GoodBarber app, it's not possible to send push notifications, like or share, or perform any other actions related to social media.

If you would like to test all of the features of your native apps and have exactly the same experience as your users who will be downloading the app, you must build the AdHoc version of your application by following the procedure indicated in this online help .

Once you have built your app, a "Download AdHoc version" link will be displayed in the My GoodBarber app to install the AdHoc version on your mobile.


3. Progressive Web App (PWA) version

The My GoodBarber app allows you see the PWA of your application.

When you click the "PWA version" button, your device's browser will open to display the PWA. 
The PWA version that you consult via the My GoodBarber app will show the changes you made in your back office BEFORE those modifications are visible to your final users.
