I am thoroughly confused. I bought this iMessage App, is the UDEMY tutorial included with purchase? or is it separate? Not sure why it has to be so confusing and not clearly presented. If it is free, I don’t know where I can access the link to view it
Hi, sorry for the confusion. The Udemy tutorial is included for free in this product. Please, contact me at email@example.com for your own special link to enroll in the course. Thank you.
Will you ever support gifs? We have a huge selection of gifs that we’d like to be able to add easily for timesake.
Hi, this is a great idea. Rebeloper Messages does support using gifs as stickers, however you would need to code a little bit. This is why I decided that I’ll update the code myself to support gifs easily. I have just submitted version 2.0.1 for review and it should be available to you within a few days. Thanks for the idea and enjoy.
Just saw your update. Can you explain briefly to me how Auto-renewable subscriptions work for this app? Especially if I have users who have already unlocked stickers?
Hi, with he auto-renewabale purchases functionality we are. Created a brand new source code that is not compatible with the old version. You should create a new app on the App Store.
Thanks – but how does the auto-renewable work with your iMessage model? It’s not just a case of unlocking stickers anymore, is it? Is it about subscribing and getting new content each month etc.? How does this work with the sticker app?
You don’t need to supply new content each month. Users will get access to thew locked stickers as long as they are subscribed. This is possible due to Apple’s new approach to Auto-renewable subscriptions. While you had to provide new content monthly in the past, now you don’t need to. Users subscribe to get access.
Okay, understood now. Can you recommend a good subscription price? The lowest? Do you have an example app that shows this? Your Black Cat one looks like it is still on the old model.
I would suggest going experimenting, but $0.99, $1.99 or $2.99 should work. It’s still a fresh market and one can ask more than the standard $0.99
New update is giving (2) errors:
Unused Entity Issue: Unused variable ‘controller’ MKStoreKit.m
Missing File: Sticker1.gif
Could you please send a screenshot? You may upload it to tinypic.com and paste the link here. Thanks.
Thanks for the screenshot. Those are just warnings. You can safely disregard them.
How do we get rid of them?
For the first one (gif one): Go to Source Control / Commit… and commit your changes.
For the second click on it and enable the Validation.
I’m not following you, for the second one… what do you mean click on it and enable the validation. Please explain.
Just click on it: http://i67.tinypic.com/11gnm2g.png and than continue with the dropdown.
clicking there does nothing
OK, it worked
Now, please explain the commit changes. When I try it it says “enter a commit message and try again”
Make sure you click on “Update to Recommended Settings”
Enter a commit message (like: first commit ) before you click on the Commit button. It’s mandatory.
OK, I went into the left side and just deleted “Sticker1.gif”
hi, I requested the video instruction. How soon will you respond to the request?
Paid the order. Wrote a request for instructions to the developer. The answer never came.
Like everything did, and in app purchase does not work.
Impression that threw money away.
Hi, Sorry for the late reply. We are closed on weekends. Have sent you the link to the course in the support ticket. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
Hey can I get the video documentation? I sent in a support ticket.
Hi, I have sent you the link to the course in the reply to your support ticket.
Hi this is a great template! Do you have any plans to add Tabs across the top so that users can different Categories?
Thanks for the compliment and your suggestion. Actually we are releasing version 3.0.0 of Rebeloper Messages in a few days thta has this exact same feature
Does this new version support gifs still? Is there a way to create more categories?
Hi, it still supports gifs. Adding more categories requires changing some code. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll do it for a small fee.
OK, let me see how many categories we are going to need, at this point its one for each main emotion, so 3-5 I also have a question regarding the locked png files. Do we have to upload locked files for every single sticker? We have over 200 stickers and that would nearly double the size of the app just having locked images. Is there a way to just show the free ones and then when it’s bought, they all just appear?
Hi, 3-5 categories is fine. Also, when you order your custom code make sure to ask for the modification to remove the locked stickers (or just show one png of a lock image for all the locked stickers) I personally like the second option because it shows the volume of the locked stickers. It entices the users to find out about all of those other 200 stickers
Hi, can you add the functionality of the iMessage app you offer to an existing app?
Hi, sure. Just contact me at email@example.com with as much detail about he project as possible.
can I add admob ads to it ? also what is the min Xcode version to compile and run this project ?
Thank you for your interest.
Currently Apple does not allow ads in iMessage apps, so AdMob does not have an implementation for these kind of apps. The minimum Xcode version is Xcode 8. The code is written in Swift 3. After an few days (once Xcode 9 and Swift 4 are released to the public) it will be updated to Swift 4 and you will be able to run it in Xcode 9.
Let me know if you have any further questions,
What exactly is the new “Support Accesibility“ feature? Please explain…
Does this X version also support gif?
Hi, not at the moment. Please use the 3.0.5 version for gif support.
Thank you for the app, but i have tested the Xcode 9 project on my iPhone and using also Simulator it is working but the animated stickers are not animating? please why is that, thank you
Hi, Rebeloper Messages does not support animated stickers as of version 2.0.0 Please, use plain png files instead. If you really do want to use animated apng or gif stickers you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll give you an earlier version of the source code. Not having all the newest features, but with animated stickers.
Thank you very much, put please can you make the app support animated png and gif , is it hard to add animated png support or you or i can do it
Hi, currently the code is written in a way that apng or gif files are not supported and cannot be added at all. If you wanted to add those than you would need to use the earlier version where there are no alerts that appear when a Locked sticker is tapped. Basically I needed to remove this apng and gif support to gove the ability for more advanced features.
thank you very much for your kind help , please my final question is there any work around to keep new features and add animation support
Unfortunately there isn’t a way to keep new features and the animated stickers too. If there were I have not been forced to remove support for the animated stickers when adding these new features in v3.0.0.
thank you man for all the help, your support is great , thank you
Dear rebeloper i have sent you an email for earlier version support animated stickers , ” email@example.com ” thank you very much
Thanks for reaching out. Have replied with he necessary details.
1) I have an issue with AppTitle, It changes its appearance depending on running device, on iPhone SE it looks taller, but on iPad Pro 12.9 it looks wider.
2) Can I change the height of the MainBar? If so, where can I do this?
1) Solved! Had AppTitle on 1X instead of 2X
Hi, you should not change the height of the main bar as it might effect other elements.
Let me know if you have any further questions.
How can I get the Swift 3.0 version – I just bought the 4.0 version – thanks!
Sent you an email on how to join Udemy course. You can get it from there.
When will this have GIF support? It’s a must have for my app.
Hi, the current version cannot support gifs because it has a UICollectionView. However older versions 2.x.x do support gifs. Go ahead and download them from the free videos Documentation Page.
How do i change the amount of categories? Thanks!
You can do that by setting up the Categories plist file. It’s all in the Documentation videos. If you haven’t got access to the Documentation videos than contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
hi, thank you for all support, please how auto subscription work , i mean when i click on locked sticker it only show non-consumable but where is the auto subscription button, thank you
Hi, sorry for the late reply. If you haven’t already than contact me for the free video Documentation at email@example.com
hi, i still can’t find where is the auto subscription button, i only see non consumable purchase, i have send email now
You will learn more about the code setup after you take a look at the video Documentation, but my guess is that you need to set enableSubscriptions to true in the Setup.swift file.
thank you very much for the great help, i will try this for sure
