It would be enough to provide a demo version of the application because the link on codecanyon is not working.

requested information: - with the WebViewGold for macOS is possible to open popup pages via javascript? - with the WebViewGold for macOS is possible to print pages via js and via jquery?

Thank you for reaching out, ravia. Thanks also for the feedback, our demo link is working in Germany, and the issue may be due to country-specific restrictions in the App Store. The support for popup page opening and page printing through JavaScript and jQuery in WebViewGold for macOS is limited and may depend on the implementation of the specific web application. Some web apps may have these features inbuilt and work as desired, while others may not. If you have specific requirements, we recommend testing with a sample web application to confirm compatibility. If the features do not work as desired, you can always try it out and request a refund if necessary – as outlined in the article on https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/202821460-Can-I-Get-A-Refund- –. and we will process the refund for you. Thank you, and best regards!

hello, In WebViewGold for macOS 1.8, youtube can hear audio but not see video. In safari browser for macOS, youtube can hear audio and view video fine. thanks.

The reason why the video on youtube.com looks black is not because of the deep link function you developed. The screen looks black in both WebViewGold for macOS 1.6 and WebViewGold for macOS 1.8 before the feature was added.

Thanks for the clarification. We will investigate this issue now & update you asap!

Thanks for your patience, nuriweb1! We are still in the process of investigating the issue with the specific YouTube site. The interesting thing is that it seems to work on one of our test Macs (without an M1-based chip; see https://prnt.sc/G3PvX68xX4_3 ), making it challenging to debug. Currently, we believe the problem is probably related to the YouTube video codec and M1-based chips and Rosetta, but we will need to do further debugging to confirm this. I created a new support mail ticket, and you will get the updates & solutions by mail. Thanks & best regards. :-)

When will the deeplinking feature be available for macOS version?

Hello, nuriweb1! Thanks so much for your comment, and also, thanks for reaching out about the feature request. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to make it available on macOS in the near future. The API for macOS is much less easy to work with, and it would require significantly more development resources to make the feature compatible with iOS & Android. For a more detailed discussion and/or options for custom development, please reach out by mail to codecanyon-comments@onlineappcreator.com :-) Thanks for being a part of the WebViewGold community! Best wishes, and have a fantastic day! :)

App rejected on AppStore:

Apps should have only the minimum set of entitlements necessary for the app to function properly. If there are entitlements that are not needed, please remove them and submit an updated binary. You will need to Developer Reject the app to upload an updated version.

com.apple.security.files.user-selected.read-write

com.apple.security.network.server

Can you help me on that so I can upload today again? The support ticket is slow.

Thanks so much for your reply, iBruno and this lovely feedback. Happy to hear that! :-) Please do not forget to rate WebViewGold on CodeCanyon. It only takes a few seconds. Just navigate to the Downloads section of CodeCanyon: https://www.webviewgold.com/docs/android/assets/img/screen5.png We would be delighted. We will consider Push + deeplinking for our macOS version soon. Thanks for being a part of the WebViewGold community! Best wishes, and have a fantastic day! :)

Hello! I will wait your answer for questions below before do my review.

Can you update this app for the next week? Or cancel my order and do a refund? The update is so important because the app don’t works like browser. Because:

- Don’t works with push notifications (like you answer DavidBorja’s comment below, 7 days ago)

- Don’t accept upload of files/images (‍♂️)

- Don’t open with deeplink

Please check / wait for your ticket replies, thanks! :-)

Hi, do you offer push notifications integrated in the app? Thanks!

Hello, DavidBorja! Thanks a lot for your comment and your interest in WebViewGold! Yes, OneSignal and Firebase can be used. Any questions left? You can also schedule a video consultation call with us anytime using the support section of www.webviewgold.com :) Or feel free to ask by text reply! We would love to have you on board in the WebViewGold community! Best wishes, and have a fantastic day! :)

olá, gostaria que voces colocasse minha URL e publicasse o app na app store, voce faz esse serviço ? por onde podemos conversar?

Hello, danielmaf! Thanks a lot for your comment and your interest in WebViewGold for macOS! This is an app template, and we currently offer our full service for iOS & Android only. But there is a step-by-step documentation included, so this should be very easy. Any questions left? You can also schedule a video consultation call with us anytime using the support section of www.webviewgold.com :) Or feel free to ask by text reply! We would love to have you on board in the WebViewGold community! Best wishes, and have a fantastic day! :)

Hello, davidlee99! Thanks a lot for your comment and your interest in WebViewGold! Yes, that should work. Some clarifications: Think about your app like a full-screen browser. Everything will work and look like your web app/website. All the changes you have made on your website will be applied to your iOS & Android apps immediately. Any questions left? You can also schedule a video consultation call with us anytime using the support section of www.webviewgold.com :) Or feel free to ask by text reply!

Tried to make a standalone app for Synology Drive with this. Works fine, up until I click something that’s supposed to open in a new Tab, when launched in a browser. Here, it just does nothing or in some cases it opens a new tab in whatever web browser I can find. Is there a way to keep that from happening, i.e. to use new tabs in the created app?

Hello, omdot! Thanks so much for your comment!

Happy to hear that most functionality is already working fine. Can you change the link behavior? I guess you are using a target=”_blank” link or a window.open(””); link request? Can you use standard HTML link LINK instead?

Background information: Insert https://www.webviewgold.com/demo/testlinks.php as the WebView URL to see how different link types affect browsing behavior.

Any questions left? Feel free to ask! Thanks for being a part of the WebViewGold community! Best wishes, and have a fantastic day! :)

I’m well aware how HTML links work. As mentioned, I want to use it to make a standalone app for Synology Drive, and I don’t have any control over link behavior inside the aforementioned web application. While I have been able to achieve the behavior I wanted when using something like Unite (see App Store), I can only create Apps that only I can use with that kind of app. So, my question is if there is an option for having the overlays (like a Lightbox effect) Synology Drive is using with your product or not. In the end, it all seems to break down to how CSS is handled. I see that you are in Germany, so maybe we cold step into contact directly and I could provide you with a test account and link so you could see for yourself what I mean.

Thanks so much for your reply. Please mail us to a screenshot and the app source code to codecanyon-comments@onlineappcreator.com – our team is highly dedicated to helping you. We also speak German ;-) Best wishes, and have a fantastic weekend! :)

Hi, are you planning to add a QR reader in the near future or is that not possible on iOS?

Hello, mampato! Thanks a lot for your comment and your interest in WebViewGold for macOS! On macOS, this is not supported or planned for the near future, sorry. Or do you mean iOS? Because WebViewGold for iOS offers a built-in QR code scanner that allows scanning these codes and opening the encrypted URL in the WebView afterward. Any questions left?

this what i get when i update new android studio can you help with that

it was working before

Hello, wowdesignoman! This is about Android, not macOS, right? Anyway: Thanks so much for your comment. Please mail a screenshot and the app source code to senior-tech-support@onlineappcreator.com – our development team is highly dedicated to helping you. The app source code will be too big to be an attachment, so please use a hosting provider like Dropbox and include a shared link in your mail.

It’s good… but could be better…

Firstly, my Archive failed to validate because there was a missing key in the info.plist file – referring to the app Category. I think this is pretty basic, and it should be working. Secondly, there’s very limited customisability compared to the iOS builder. The most basic one is the ‘preventoverscroll’ variable on the iOS build, which is not available on this MacOS build. This means for your macOS view, you still see all the classic website ‘bounce’ when you overscroll and makes it look like a website inside a window. Not great for a proper app distribution. The iOS build looks more professional when you prevent the overscrolling and this should be a simple fix for MacOS version.

Thank you a lot for your honest feedback, larasoft_io! You are right – your suggestion that we set a default category by default, we have implemented and in version 1.8 (5 August 21) also published directly today. The macOS version is indeed a by-product of WebViewGold for iOS and WebViewGold for Android, and not all features are available in the macOS version. But we are working on exciting new features, and thank you for your feedback! If you are ever in the area, we want to invite you for a coffee at our office in Freiburg, Germany. Feel free to contact us in advance by mail, and we will arrange an appointment. Thank you again, and much success with your macOS app! :)

Hey, WebViewGold community! :) Some of our team members are on vacation at the moment, so answers here on the CodeCanyon comment section are expected to be a bit slower than you are used to from us. However, you are guaranteed to receive a CodeCanyon comment response by the 2nd of August 2021 (Berlin, Germany Time Zone). A much faster way to contact us is via 24/7 live chat or via a Zoom video call – check out all the details on our website https://www.webviewgold.com :) Have a great week & let’s be in touch soon! :)

anyway to get around this? I have this problem all the time with apple? can I get a refund if I can’t get the app approved?

From Apple 4. 2 Design: Minimum Functionality (macOS) Guideline 4.2.2 – Design

The experience that your app provides is not sufficiently different from a web browsing experience.

Next Steps

Hello, kraze2007! Thanks so much for your comment! Sorry to hear that. But the good news is that you bought WebViewGold, which includes an Apple App Store approval guarantee. App Store approval highly depends on the content you provide in your app, as WebViewGold does not provide content by itself. Please make sure to submit an app using a website/web app that behaves like a mobile app (for example, by using responsive design and removing social media widgets). Make sure that the content does not contradict the legal requirements of the Apple Developer Program. Use different link colors than standard HTML colors and responsive design for a better user experience. Please use Apple Resolution Center to explain the app feature in general (like “Our app enables our existing users to login in/use our products on their handheld device/....). If they still reject the app, ask us for a refund of the WebViewGold license. Alternatively, you can re-use your license for another app. Moreover, please consider a professional User Experience/UX Review on https://www.uxreviewer.io or similar services before resubmitting your app. Such a UX review also helps you to achieve better customer retention in general for your product with suggestions for improvement. Any questions left? Feel free to ask! Thanks for being a part of the WebViewGold community! Best wishes, and have a fantastic day! :)

what kind of file does this output a DMG?

Hello, kraze2007! Thanks a lot for your comment and your interest in WebViewGold! This is an Xcode app template so that you can expect any output type possible with Xcode. In most cases, the standard procedure would be to export as .app for Mac and use another tool to wrap this .app file into a DMG volume. Any questions left? Always happy to help! We would love to have you on board in the WebViewGold community! Best wishes, and have a fantastic day! :)
