appMobi export and use

Get help using Construct 2

Sorry men i follow a recent subject speaking about appmobi/ios and there is some things i don't understand as i'm a novice in appMobi export and use.

Export C2 project to appMobi (XDK) .... ok if using "Browser" mode ... using direct canvas and it's always black screen with all projects i have tested ... ok it's experimental but i never see something working even a simple project ! is this feature broken in last C2 releases ?

AppMobi => Testing in local mode ... ok good result using iphone "App lab" (from appMobi)... my test project scale perfectly to iphone screen covering fullscreen (except battery/time bar) so the result is perhaps even "better" than the HTML5 C2 export.

AppMobi => export to distributed webapp + dropbox publishing ... here i'm really confused ... some are speaking about launching "App lab" but as it's a distributed project seems it's created to be launched via common "index.html" url in safari/iphone ? ...

The result is not good, project scale to screen but "a black bar" appear below the battery/time bar cutting the bottom part of the screen !

So i think i miss something ... if someone can give me some tips it's really help me.

I'm still waiting for appMobi users feedback.

I have always this problem on Iphone using webapp export (i'm not registered as ios dev.) ... so a black bar appeared on the topmost part of the screen "cutting" graphic and text which are now out of screen in the bottom part. If someone have some tips ... the preview local wifi mode is correct in XDK appMobi choosing Iphone4 and also correct using App Lab on a Iphone4 ... so it's perhaps a problem link to new iphone specific tags add in Construct 2 ?

@delgado ... sure .... ;-p

I'm really confused my post is not directcanvas specific as all answers i received could let think !. For me directcanvas is just a way to test a game using a more powerful engine and evaluate perfs gain ... so in this way it's interesting ... but after if players must have "app lab" or use a package version requiring licence / app store and so on ... i think is not actually for me.

So i don't have answers about appmobi webapps publishing and differences with testing in local wifi mode for a C2 project ... but perhaps appmobi is never use by C2 devs or never use in this mode ? ;-p

It makes me wonder they could to fix Tiled Background plugin for appMobi, sometimes it shows missing tiles, there a workaround is using sprites instead of tiled backgroundJoannesalfa2012-06-21 09:44:57

@Joannesalfa, thanks there is perhaps a link with my project problem which use mainly tiledbackground ... have you notice differences between app lab/xdk appMobi display and a html5 published app display using safari ios ?
