nessViewer App 1.9.2 for iPad/iPhone/iPod touch available


As previously reported, we have fixed a bug in this version that occurred apparently only on iPhone 5s and iPhone 6 with iOS 8. It crashed nessViewer App on these iOS devices after selecting "Open URL", entering an URL and confirming with "Open.

Since this routine - display of this view and entering an URL or a file name - is used in several places in nessViewer App, it crashed on these iOS devices in other places as well: for example, when one created a folder at "Open File", at "Present URL", added an URL to a media show and when one saved a new media show.

This was caused by calling a system routine ("callback") that is apparently not supported (anymore) on these iOS devices - we have not found appropriate documentation for this problem. Fortunately, we were able to develop a different approach which works on all iOS devices on all supported versions of iOS (iOS 4.1 to iOS 8.2).

In addition, we have also fixed some issues with displaying the status bar and we adapted some provider offers.

Meanwhile, we are already working on the next version 1.9.3 which among others allows it to access the media of the "Photos App" with the new structure (years, collections, moments, etc.).

And the news web page has been enhanced to show what is going on with nessViewer App for iOS in the same way as with nessViewer for Mac.
