Version number added to download name
The version of your app is now included in the download name. The download name will look like this:
The version information comes from the first line of your config.xml file:
<widget version="1.0.3" android-versionCode="1" id="com.nsbasic.HelloWorld" ios-CFBundleVersion="1" xmlns="https://www.w3.org/ns/widgets" >
This makes is easy to keep different versions of your app. The new build will not overwrite your last build if you change its version number.
(Thanks to Mujaffar for the suggestion!)
What VoltBuilder Does
VoltBuilder builds native executables (.apk and .ipa) for Android and iOS from web apps. These executables can be augmented with native code plugins which extend capabilities far beyond what is possible in Web Apps and PWAs.
It works as a web service. Zip your project, upload to VoltBuilder, and download executables for Android or iOS.
VoltBuilder is framework neutral: it does not use any other AppStudio products, nor does it restrict the use of other frameworks. There is nothing to install.
We started in 1993 at the introduction of the Newton to fill the need for easier to use development tools. Our first product, NS Basic/Newton, was a success. When the Newton was cancelled, we introduced NS Basic/Palm. It also did well, so we added NS Basic/CE.
