Description

As per #2318, we want to keep our app store listings up-to-date. To change the description text to be on par with the Android version, we need to issue a new release. It's also worth checking that the system requirements (iOS 5) are still the same.

Updated description text:

Get the free presentation remote control app for LibreOffice! The Impress Remote lets you interact with your slideshow presentation from your iOS device – including slide previews, speaker notes, and more.

A detailed description of the prerequisites and a step-by-step user guide is available here: http://hub.libreoffice.org/iosremote

LibreOffice is the power-packed free, libre and open source personal productivity suite for Windows, macOS and GNU/Linux, which gives you six feature-rich applications for all your document production and data processing needs: Writer, Calc, Impress, Draw, Math and Base. Support and documentation is free from our large, dedicated community of users, contributors and developers.

Download LibreOffice from http://www.libreoffice.org/download/

LibreOffice, and the Impress Remote, is community-driven and developed software – and a project of the governing charitable organization, The Document Foundation.

This software is developed by users, just like you, who believe in the principles of free software and in sharing their work with the world in a non-restrictive way. Meet us at http://www.libreoffice.org/get-involved/

Do we actually need a new release of the software or do we rather want to update the description (and system requirements) in the store?

Yes, we need a new release -- you can't change description text for an existing release.

Just to clarify that, from Apple's own help pages: "You can only update an app’s description when submitting a new version that app."

Oh, ok - can you check with Cloph how much work that entails (so we can
see if it is worth the efforts just now) and when the next regular
release would be due anyways?

Cloph volunteered to do the new iOS release and is assigned in the ticket, so he can let us know – Cloph, what do you think?

need to check how much did change re iPhone X support / new iOS release - if XCode is happy with the existing code, then should be doable this week, otherwise will have to be delayed.

As for next release: there is none planned/no need - as no backend features have been added. So adding new release would be just to compile with current XCode/SDK.

#9 Updated by Florian Effenberger 5 months ago

  • Target version changed from Q4/2017 to Q2/2018

Need to build again anyways around April, as App Store requires 64bit app availability - we likely will simply recompile what we have

#10 Updated by Florian Effenberger 2 months ago

Last status is that some artwork is missing (original vector files). Cloph is chasing these, then release is done along new descriptions

#11 Updated by Florian Effenberger 13 days ago

  • Status changed from New to In Progress
  • Target version changed from Q2/2018 to Q3/2018

New text is added to the app store, next release is due the next weeks
