Crosswalk Intel XDK experiences

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sat Oct 18, 2014 12:59 pm

We have published the cordova 3.5.1 update for crosswalk 7&8 (stable & beta in XDK). You don't need to install anything, just rebuild your app and resubmit to google play. I just published a test app and haven't seen a new cordova alert so I think we are okay. Thanks for your patience.

Now I have a request for you. Many of you have been submitting both x86 and arm apk's to google play, but we need more. If you only submit the arm APK, it won't run on the 40 million tablets that Intel sold in 2014. It won't run on the new google nexus player (http://www.google.com/nexus/player/). Your users might get a black screen and give you a bad rating. My boss will come to my office and ask me why your game won't run on his phone.

Submitting both arm and x86 just takes a few minutes. It's a simple way to improve the user experience for you users, and much easier than the hard work you put into making a game.

The build email has a link to a zip file with arm and x86 apks. When you upload the APK in google play, there is a button in the top right that says 'switch to advanced mode' Click on it. Then upload the arm and x86 apk. Publish. That's it! If you have a problem, PM me.

It's the single most important way to show your appreciation for XDK and Crosswalk, so please do it, and help spread the word.

@IntelRobert I have rebuilt and updated my apk on the play store. Do you know if we should expect a delay in the developer console refreshing as my app still has the warning triangle by it?

@FredQ

I don't know for sure, my guess is that it takes a few hours. I published a new app a few hours ago and it was published and did not get the warning triangle. I just published an update to one of my older apps, the triangle is still there.

@FredQ it's just like when you published your app it takes a couple hours for google to update it. You know when you look at your app in the dev console and there's the button View in the Google Play store (next to app name) after you publish there is a triangle telling you it's going to be a couple hours till all users can see updated version when that goes away the yellow one should. it takes that long

@Raiper341 you have to enable advanced settings then it allows you to upload both x86 and arm at the same time

@intelRobert I get an error when I try to update intelXDK from the green arrow that appears on top"An error occurred with the update: cannot download an update since one is not available". then it goes back as if nothing happened. What should I do? would be great if the Build log showed what apache version was used =(
