Media List Page Type Tutorial

One of the most amazing features that we have recently added is the Media List Page type. This page allows downloading media files from our server directly in the Application on the device.

In order to add a new Media List Page to your app, go to Edit Pages menu then click the "+" (Add New Page) button. From the list of the page types available select Media List Page and click the "Create" button.

 

   

 

                                     Once the page is added you may proceed with editing it.

 

                           

 

 

                               In the Edit Mode of the page you can edit the following settings:

 

 

1) Set the number of media files.

 

2) Add an image for every media file.

 

3) Add a title for each media file.

 

4) Select a media file and upload it (see the next image). 

 

You can upload .pdf, .mp4, .mp3 or .3gp files. The limit file size is 100 MB. The files will be uploaded on our server.  Once you uploaded the file, click Ok.

*   Note that the process is the same for iOS and Android Applications.

 

                     In the Style mode you can change the background color, image and text color.

 

Once you are done customizing the settings in Edit Mode and Style mode, you may preview the page on a device using the AppsVolcano App Previewer. Since this is a native pageit will be available for preview only in the App Previewer. 

 

                               Press on the download button to download the media file
