shaders & iPad

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Hi
I read that shaders where not supported by Safari sodoes it mean that I can't use the Multiply effect on an iPad ? Is there a way to activate these effect by using, for exemple, appmobi or Cocoon ?
Thanks

Shaders currently require WebGL support, which isn't supported anywhere on mobile yet. Hopefully in future support will arrive to some mobile browsers...

That's too bad! It was exactly the function I've long been waiting for.
Nos other to simulate the multiply effect ?

Unfortunately not - it really needs WebGL support.

If you want to test WebGL on your iPad, you need to jailbreak your iPad, http://demoseen.com/webglenabler/

It's only for developers

Thanks Joannesalfa.
But the app I'm working on is for common users and most of them have unjailbroken devices.

We don't know about Apple is really slow about pushing updates from Safari into the webview to implement WebGL, it's not enabled at all. But iAds works with WebGL.

@Laurent : do you need the multiply effect between an image and a color, or between two images ?
