In this online help, we will be discussing the different ways of testing your application.
Instant visualisation of your modifications
On the Test page, you have the choice to see the Progressive Web App (PWA) version of your app or to preview the native version of your app.
When you test your app with My GoodBarber, you can see the results of the modifications you make to your app BEFORE making any type of update.
It is therefore practical 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 activating them for all of your users.
Native preview of your apps
On the Test page, select "Native Preview" to directly access the preview of the native version.
Once your test has been completed, use the "Back" button on your phone in order to exit the preview and return to the Test page on the My GoodBarber app.
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 have completed your test, pinch the screen to return to the Test page on the My GoodBarber app.
Native preview vs. native AdHoc version
Please be aware that there are a certain number of limitations on this native preview compared to the final version that will be published in the App store. In this test app, it is not possible to send push notifications, to like or share, or to perform any other actions related to social media (Authentication to your app for instance).
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 compile the AdHoc version of your application (Sales channel > Android > Publish) or (Sales channel > iOS > Publish) or by following the procedure indicated in this online help .
Once you have followed this procedure, a link called "Download AdHoc version" will appear at the bottom of the page in the My GoodBarber app that will allow you to install the AdHoc version with a simple click.
Progressive Web App (PWA) preview
The My GoodBarber app also let you see the PWA of your application.
When you click the "PWA Preview" button, the browser of your device will open to display the PWA.
The PWA version that you consult via the My GoodBarber app will show all of the modifications that you have made in the backend without necessarily having published them already.
Return to the home screen of the My GoodBarber app
To go back to the list of your applications, simply use the "Return" button on your phone to return to the home menu on Android devices.
To go back to the list of your applications on an iOS device, place your finger on the two horizontal lines under the name of your app and swipe the page to the bottom.
