Post news RSS Final iterations and promotion to beta

So I’ve been making slight adjustments to the What's Glob been up to? Including some final iterations with improvements based on testing.

So I’ve been making slight adjustments to the What's Glob been up to? I had a problem with the percentage-based layout which wasn’t working quite how I expected, but I think was because the image borders weren’t quite flush with the anchors, causing slight percentage problems when scaled to resolutions much larger than I can in the editor preview.

The constant building and uploading, then fixing building and uploading cycle is getting a bit annoying. But I don’t know a better way!

One thing I did discover is you always need to increment the version when uploading a new file to the Google developer console.

incrementing version

You need to increment both numbers to make this work, which is a bit annoying if you forget, but is essential or it won’t be uploaded.

Promoted to Beta

So I pressed the button that promotes it to beta.

This doesn’t mean anything, other than it’s now in a different tab in the developer console!

Automatic updating

It looks like Google takes care of any updating of the app that needs to be done. At least on alpha/beta (and I assume in production too). Just upload a new file and it pushes to phones, although this is a bit slow. Slower than I’d like, so I did still have to email the file to myself to test faster.
