 Adobe Experience Manager Mobile 2017.2 Release

The Experience Manager Mobile team released version 2017.2 on Friday, February 17.

Dynamic Shared Content

With dynamic shared content, you can use APIs to update shared content without having to update the articles that refer to the shared content. When you update the dynamic shared content and publish it, the changes are made automatically to all referring articles, and users don’t have to click the Update prompt. The new shared content capabilities do not affect existing shared content workflows. If you want to take advantage of dynamic shared content, you must change your existing shared content to enable the new dynamic workflow.

Phone-Only or Tablet-Only Android Apps

When you build an Android app, you can now limit the supported devices to phones or tablets.

iOS Apps Support iOS 9 and Later

iOS apps built in this release support iOS 9 and greater, and are not compatible with iOS 8. The minimum supported phone and tablet devices on iOS 9 are the iPhone 4s and iPad 2, respectively. The minimum system requires for iOS 8 and iOS 9 devices are identical.

Bugs Fixes and Enhancements

This release of iOS viewers includes significant improvements to app stability for articles that use memory-intensive overlays. In addition, this release of iOS viewers includes stability and reliability improvements in downloading content.

The Experience Manager Mobile team released version 2017.1 on Tuesday, January 10.

App Customization

App customization features for this release include the ability to turn on or off the Navigation Bar and App Menu in iOS and Android apps.

Entitlement-Aware Search

Restricted content is now hidden from search results unless the user is signed in and has access to the restricted content.

Bugs Fixes and Enhancements

Dynamic banners in Web Viewer now support getEntity calls. This release includes additional bug fixes and enhancements.

 AEM Mobile Update – Bug Fixes

Two issues related to the AEM Mobile 2016.14 release were recently resolved.

iOS app building issue – When you use Application Loader to upload an iOS app, some apps were being rejected with a message that said the app’s Info.plist must contain an NSPhotoLibraryUsageDescription key. This issue has been resolved in a 2016-12-14 hot fix. If you experienced this error, rebuild and resubmit your app.  (4152706, 4152704)

Android viewer issue – For the new App Customization feature, the option to hide the “Sign in” option was not taking effect in Android apps if no other app customization options were set. This issue has been resolved in a 2016-12-12 hot fix; rebuild your Android app. (4152697)

 Adobe Experience Manager Mobile 2016.14 Release

The Experience Manager Mobile team released version 2016.14 on Tuesday, December 6.

Initial Support for App Customization

The ability to change colors and fonts in the app UI is the first of several upcoming app customization features. Customizing apps offers more control over the user experience and helps ensure consistent branding. In the On-Demand Services Portal, you can specify different colors and fonts for various views that appear in your app, including the app navigation bar, the app menu, and sign-in and paywall screens.

Android Push Notifications via On-Demand Services Portal

Push messages appear outside of your app, making them useful for re-engaging passive users or conveying time-sensitive information. Android push notifications are now available through On-Demand Services. You can send Android text notifications using the Notifications section of the On-Demand Services Portal or by using APIs. (As a separate feature, you can also send push notifications using the Mobile Marketing Dashboard.)

New App-Signing Process

Adobe has changed its app-signing process in order to comply with Apple guidelines and use the most current version of Xcode. The Apps section of the AEM On-Demand Portal includes a new update for the AEM Mobile Signing Tool. Once you update the AEM Mobile Signing Tool, you select the certificate from your computer’s keychain instead of specifying the .p12 certificate and password. To use this new signing method, Xcode 8 and Java 7 or later must be installed on the computer, and the certificate must be available in the computer keychain. (You can double-click a .p12 certificate and specify a password to add it to the Keychain Access tool.)

Support for iOS ATS Compliance

Starting January 1, 2017, Apple will require all apps to connect securely to servers. AEM Mobile apps that connect to content through hyperlinks, entitlement calls, or other URL links should use HTTPS domains. If you need to use HTTP instead of HTTPS domains, make sure that you select the new “Allow content from HTTP” option when building your iOS app to ensure that HTTP content loads in your app. If this option is not selected, HTTP content will not load in your app. After January 1, 2017, you might need to justify your use of HTTP to Apple during the submission process.

Custom Authentication Support for Gigya

Custom authentication offers greater control over the authentication process and can customize the sign-in experience in AEM Mobile apps. Custom authentication now supports Gigya, which allows customers to sign in using both traditional and social media methods such as Facebook and Google.

Bugs Fixes and Enhancements

All app platforms now include an auto-generated “Acknowledgements” page. If you open the app settings and choose Acknowledgements, a list of licenses is displayed. This release includes additional bug fixes and enhancements.

 Adobe Experience Manager Mobile 2016.13 Release

The Experience Manager Mobile team released version 2016.13 on Tuesday, November 1.

Dynamic Banners

Bring browse pages to life by displaying HTML content in dynamic banners. Dynamic banners can display stock quotes, slideshow carousels, social media feeds, and more. By leveraging Cordova plugins, you can take advantage of AEM Mobile specific features such as allowing users to tap a slide in a banner to navigate to an article or to display the entitlement sign-in prompt.

Updated Portal Interface

The Adobe On-Demand Services Portal has been updated to be consistent with other Adobe services sites. The same features and services are still available in the revised interface. For example, the left navigation rail can be collapsed and expanded, a toolbar appears when items are selected, and the list of breadcrumb links is replaced by a single link to AEM Mobile services.

Initial Support for Android Push Notifications Through On-Demand Services

Android push notifications, which were previously available only through Marketing Cloud services, are now available through On-Demand Services. At this time, sending Android push notifications is available only through APIs. The option to send Android push notifications in the On-Demand Portal should be available soon.

Bugs Fixes and Enhancements

Android apps now include an “Acknowledgements” page. If you open the app menu and tap Settings > Acknowledgements, a list of licenses is displayed. This release includes additional bug fixes and enhancements.

 Adobe Experience Manager Mobile 2016.12 Release

The Experience Manager Mobile team released version 2016.12 on Tuesday, October 4.

iOS and Android Push Notifications via Marketing Cloud

Use the Adobe Mobile Marketing Cloud (Adobe Analytics: Mobile Apps) to send push messages to both iOS and Android app users. Push messages appear outside of your app, making them useful for re-engaging passive users or conveying time-specific and location-specific information. Marketing Cloud-based push messages use Google Cloud Messaging (GCM) for Android apps and Apple Push Notification Service (APNS) for iOS apps. You can target push messages to users by specifying Analytics segments or custom segments.

The ability to send push messages from the Marketing Cloud is complimentary to the Notifications feature, which lets you use the On-Demand Services Portal to send both background notifications and text notifications to iOS app users.

Layout Template and Other Portal UI Enhancements

This and earlier releases include the following improvements to the On-Demand Services Portal:

  • A Preflight option is now available when editing layout templates, allowing you to more easily preview your layout changes while editing layout templates.
  • When you edit a layout template, you can choose between using the previously imported collection or selecting a different collection.
  • A new layout preview option lets you show or hide the app HUD (heads-up display, or top navigation bar).
  • Project settings now includes a Trash icon that allows you to delete the brand image.

iOS App Performance Enhancements

HTML articles in iOS apps load faster, improving the user experience.

Android App Support for Android 7.0 (Nougat)

Android apps built using 2016.12 support the Android 7.0 (Nougat) operating system. AEM Mobile apps will support split-screen mode, including resizing videos on the fly in split-screen mode.

Desktop Web Viewer Enhancements

Desktop Web Viewer now supports the navto://relative/parent link format and improves entitlement caching performance. These features are already supported in other platforms.

Bugs Fixes and Enhancements

This release includes bug fixes and enhancements.

 Adobe Experience Manager Mobile 2016.11 Release

The Experience Manager Mobile team released version 2016.11 on Wednesday, September 7.

  • Hide Project – With the new Hide Project feature, you can avoid clutter in the On-Demand Portal by hiding unused projects. When a project administrator marks a project as hidden, the project disappears by default in the Portal UI for users who have access to the project. Users can still click an icon to toggle between displaying or hiding projects that are marked as hidden. All features such as publishing and entitlement are still available in a hidden project.
  • Desktop Web Viewer Enhancements – The Desktop Web Viewer now supports extensibility APIs previously available in iOS and Android viewers. These API features include the ability to obtain the page number of a specific location within an article and to obtain app-specific information such as a list of entity children for a collection.
  • Authoring API Updates – The authoring APIs now include improved support for sending push notifications as well as support for hiding projects. The authoring APIs enable customers to set up an automated workflow for creating and editing projects and content.
  • Bugs Fixes and Enhancements – Windows apps now support the API to obtain the page number at a specific location within an article. Android apps now support navto:// links that jump to a specific location of an article based on percentage. This release also fixes a bug in which phone layouts were erroneously displaying on Android tablets. An updated version of the Acrobat add-on for creating PDF-based articles is now available.
