Since our Android and iOS codebases have now been unified, we'll be
making releases for both platforms at the same time now. We are close
to releasing both the apps simultaneously, and would like your help in
ensuring we are able to make a clean and uasble release. We now have
beta4 of the Wikipedia App for Android v1.1 release and beta3 of the
Wikipedia App iOS v3.1 release for testing!
For people who just want to get the betas:
Open the .apk in your device and install.
Download the ipa, drag it into iTunes, and sync!
NOTE 1: If you haven't given us your UDID then this IPA will NOT work
for you. We need to have your IPA before we build a new version in
order for it to work. If your try the IPA and find that it wont
install then follow these instructions and then send us your UDID
NOTE 2: If you tested our beta2/beta1 on iOS, please uninstall the previous
beta from the device before installing this one.
Load it up on your Android/iOS Devices (Phones & Tablets) and give it
a spin. Use it as you normally would, and tell us where it goes wrong.
You can leave feedback at the following Wiki pages:
Changes since the previous beta are:
### Common ###
- Cleaner Attribution in Map Views
- Fix missing localization strings
- Remove close button from Map popups
- Toggle Code and CSS now pinned to specific revisions. Less breakage!
### Android specific ###
- Fix race condition that sometimes jumbles up menus
- Spinner now works across a lot more devices
### iOS specific ###
- Fix external links related bugs
- Remove stray index.html titles in alert and confirm boxes
Note: Share functionality in iOS is still in progress. Expect a
(hopefully final!) release on Monday with working share functions!
