The RSS App tab is intended to allow users to read RSS feed XML files as article feeds inside the app. The current functionality of the RSS tab functionality is easy to setup, configure and add to the app. However there is a functional flaw in the architecture. The RSS feed tab in the app will not redirect correctly back to the article. Rather it will redirect to the app home page which we don’t want. This video presents a work around to this problem using a WordPress plug in called WP Touch. This video will show you how to configure the RSS tab, add it to the app and then configure WP Touch so that the users are actually able to read the article. Below you will find the resources needed, including the special redirect code for the HTML5 mobile app that gets installed as well as the WP Touch plug in version 3.2.1.
It’s very important to know your analytics for your app just like you would your website analytics. How many downloads, hot many HTML5 installs and beyond, including which tabs are being used. You really need to know exactly what people are doing with your app and more importantly if they’re doing what you want them to do with your app. App analytics allows you to know this type of data and then when combined with the power of the CMS you can easily make changes as needed to make your app even more useful to your audinece.
A subtab is a tab you can place on your home screen that will give your users quick and easy access to frequently used functional aspects of your app. Commonly people will use sub tabs to give people quick access to view the push notification messages or what is illustrated in the video is a sub tab for food ordering if you were a restaurant. But you can use them any way you want. Note: This video reflects the old CMS UI and will be upgraded shortly.
