How do I set up my HTML5 app version?

Last Updated: Jul 24, 2013 08:24PM CEST
If you are interested in setting up your HTML5 app inside our app builder, please check the custom domain settings article first, as it is a prerequisite for setting up your custom domain inside our app builde correctly.

Setting up Custom Domain for your app

Log in to your ShoutEm app builder and go to Settings -> Publish info -> HTML5.

Here you'll see the HTML5 setup page as you'd view it before publishing your app. It consists of three settings:

HTML5 Domain -  You need to enter your custom domain inside this field. This can be something as or Until you set this up, the generic link below will be used to access your Mobile Web app. 

Note for White label / Agency users: The generic link isn't visible on your accounts, because it would defeat the purpose of being white labeled. You need to set up a custom domain in order for your HTML5 app to work.

Analytics code - This is the custom analytics code from Google Analytics that can be added in order to track the number of users for your application. This field is optional, and it is not mandatory to complete the HTML5 app setup. If you want to see more about setting up this feature, please check this article.

Use Smart App Banner in HTML5 App - This is a feature that Apple automatically provides for all published applications. If you turn it on, your users will get a popup when they visit your HTML5 app if your iPhone application is already published. (This is only available for Advanced pricing plan users and above).

After you have entered those changes, click on the Save button

If your app has not been published yet, this changes will be available from the moment of the app publishing. In case you have already published your app, you need to click on the Re-publish button in the top right corner.

Your HTML5 app version or its generic preview link are not available before you publish it! If you want to test your app before publishing, please either use the Preview feature inside the app builder that can be found under Design Smartphone tab or the Mobilizer 4 app for iPhone that can be downloaded from here:

Redirecting your users to the HTML5 app

After you publish your application, this sections gets another field, called the Embed code that allows you to redirect users who visit your desktop website on their mobile device to your new HTML5 app version. For more information on how to place this code on your site, click here.

We hope that this article gave you a better understanding of the HTML5 app setup and features attached to this app version.
