Privacy Policy for IB3?

Charmaine Anderson 6 years ago in By Screen / Publish updated by Ezra Weinstein (Administrator) 6 years ago 0
I'm going to be putting together a privacy policy for my app, but I'm not sure what IB3 is doing behind the scenes from a privacy standpoint that I can share with parents and be compliant with the COPPA standards.  Can you please craft a statement that users of your software can include in our privacy policy that will assure our customers of what data is being collected about them (if any) and how that data is being used?  I'm sure other IB3 users would appreciate having a blurb like this they can use with confidence.  Thanks for considering!

animation conflict with other elements

Melissa Lind 6 years ago in By Screen / Design updated by Alin Alexandru Matei 6 years ago 4
I have an animation and an element on a page that work fine on their own, but when the path of the element crosses in front of the animation, the animation will no longer work.
Alin Alexandru Matei 6 years ago
Could you provide us some details like:
-on what OS this situation happen?
- was in InteractBuilder (InteractMode) or in InteractPlayer.
-what kind of animation it is: a frame animation or a graphical element animation?
-the behavior for the other element.
Thank you for your feedback.

Fade in and Out settings - advanced options

Charmaine Anderson 7 years ago in By Screen / Design updated by Ezra Weinstein (Administrator) 7 years ago 0

It would be nice to be able to specify exactly how fast the fade in takes place and how long the object remains in view before it fades out.  For example, I'd like the fade in to happen much more quickly than the default fade in, as it is too slow before the object displays.  So greater control on the fade in and fade out option would be nice rather than the currently method of setting the time for the entire fade in and out.  I've tried changing the duration of the exiting fade in and out but the fade in is the same slowness.    The reason is I would like user to click on a static element and have it play a larger animated version of the element.  And I want to use a lot of static elements on the screen. Because kids will keep tapping elements quickly, I need the elements to fade in quickly, display object for longer than the fade before they fade out.


interact mode hanging scenario

Ranco 7 years ago in By Screen / Interact updated by Ezra Weinstein (Administrator) 7 years ago 1

Ok, here is the setup:

two elements:

Element#1 action is to fadeIn element#2 (2 sec)

Element#2 action fades out itself (2 sec)

Scenario (interact mode hangs or significantly slows down):

Click Element#1 (to show element#2)

While Element#2 is being animated (faded in), click it.

First, it will not fade out, not even after it is fully shown. Second, other items in the page will not interact, or interact slowly.


This issue will be addressed in version 3.2.2.

I have a page where the reader paints with their finger and change color by touching paint brushes in different colors.  I also have an eraser on the page which I can't get to work as i would like. Currently it will erase if I set it to erase but if I use set erase mode it erases the eraser, in either case  I would like the reader to be able to paint, then hit the eraser and erase what they want and then hit a paintbrush again to begin painting without having to change pages to reset the page. If that is possible would you please explain how to do this?  I could not find it described in the user guide or any posts.




managing file size

Melissa Lind 7 years ago in By Screen / Design updated by Ezra Weinstein (Administrator) 7 years ago 9

I'm only half way through one of my books and it's already 150 mb without any sound files. I'm looking for ways to cut it back. What are the most size intensive interactions? How intensive are frame animations vs. linear animations? Or do the layers take up more space than interactions? Any advice?



The new update of InteractPlayer NOT working on iPhone

Judy K. Johnson 6 years ago in By Screen / Interact updated by Ezra Weinstein (Administrator) 6 years ago 1
I downloaded the IP update yesterday on my iPhone 4S. It only displays less than 1/4 of the page of my shared app. Also the volume is extremely diminished even with my volume on Max. This is drastic problem compared to previous version.
An update has been submitted to Apple which hopefully will be approved soon.

Animated frame element only plays once on tap

Charmaine Anderson 7 years ago in By Screen / Interact updated by Alin Alexandru Matei 6 years ago 16

Animated frame element will not play if tapped again. Only plays once on tap. I have a .png sequence set to animate on tap, no looping.  Works fine on first tap.  After animation stops playing, if element is tapped again in Interact mode, it does not play again.

I also tried reseting the Replay Count to either 0, 1 or 100 under Behavior Options but element still will not play on second tap.  Here are the settings I'm using.

See enclosed app.  We cannot recreate the issue you are reporting.  You can see in this sample that every time you tap the butterfly it animates.

In the Frame Animation Editor the Duration Method and the Duration of Animation variant, they don't keep the change's that I make. It always go back to the default setting.
