Notable Features & Updates
September 20, 2016

Addresses a short list of bugs but takes this opportunity to add a small feature and, maybe more interesting, a set of mini-games. Heard about gamification? Not a pretty word but its import can be quite valuable. We talk about gamification here. For details about this release, see the release notes.

v 5.6.3
August 31, 2016

(Supersedes v.5.6.1 and v.5.6.2) Corrects all the speed bumps found since the launch of Version 5.6.0. Don't waste any time getting it on your devices. Details are in the release notes.

v 5.6.0
August 10, 2016

A feature release emphasizing the creative needs of designers.

  • Transparent video support: Play videos containing an alpha channel - i.e. transparent videos. Specific formats are required; see here for guidelines. Or did we make those guidelines transparent……
  • Transparent experience backgrounds: Show third party apps running behind IntuiFace and even enable users to interact with both IntuiFace and third party apps at the same time. Also referred to as a transparent Player, you're not going to believe your eyes.
  • New "Fill behavior" property: Permits greater control over how images, videos, webcam feeds and image buttons are displayed within their container. Options include fit, fill and deform.
  • Animated GIF support: Animated GIFs (with or without transparency) are hip again and IntuiFace is as cool as can be so they make a great pair. Show your favorite animated GIFs in IntuiFace.

Lots of additional improvements and bug fixes. We've even sped up Composer and increased the free storage we provide for experiences you want to share or deploy. For all the details, see our release notes.

v 5.5.2
July 5, 2016

Mainly a bug fix release but there was one big change. We have swapped the Open Street Map provider used for our Map collection from MapQuest to MapBox. For an explanation of why we made this change - and for details about all the improvements in this release - see our Release Notes.

v 5.5.1
June 15, 2016

Bug fix release with a small feature upgrade as sweetener. All details can be found in our Release Notes.

v 5.5.0
June 7, 2016

A 'you asked for it' feature update!

  • Use the new Move to front and Send to back actions to change the visual stacking of items on-screen. Call it 'z order' to impress your friends.
  • Enhanced Hide and Show actions can apply the opposite effect to all other items in the same layer or same Group/Pinboard collection
  • Webcam asset permits camera selection (if more than one is available) and resolution (320x240, 640x480 or best available for the webcam)
  • Ability to disable the next and previous swipe gestures of the Flip Chart collection. The old method was to yell "Darn!" and swipe back to the original item.
  • Improved organization of the Triggers and Actions panel - as well as of the binding panel - should make it a lot easier for all of you who don't read manuals to figure out how to work with triggers, actions and binding.
  • 8 additional, minor usability enhancements
  • Lots of bug fixes. Not that we have bugs. We don't. But if we did, we fixed them.

You can find details about everything above and lots more by reading the Release Notes.

v 5.4.1
May 16, 2016

Our first update/patch release since shipping Version 5.4. Took a month but we finally identified a few things that needed fixing. The details are here. Meanwhile, we're already hard at work on our next feature release. Stay tuned....

v 5.4.0
April 21, 2016

Design for accessibility, because 1 in 7 people worldwide possess some kind of disability

  • Text-to-speech: Generate speech for both static and dynamic text. (Windows only) You should check it out; you’re a bit of a mumbler.
  • Keyboard triggers: Key presses can act as triggers for any IntuiFace actions. For example, use arrow keys for navigation. The keyboard is no longer just a pretty face.
  • Gestures for static assets: Any onscreen gesture initiated on a static asset can act as a trigger for any IntuiFace actions. Don’t overdo it or it’ll look like you’re massaging the screen.

Support for beacons using the iBeacon™ and Eddystone™ protocols. Why care? It means your experiences can know what is brought near them; you can then do something about it.

  • Application notification (i.e. beacon detection): Capture unique ID of any beacon brought near a running experience and use that ID to trigger specific actions, show specific data, etc. This is very cool stuff.
  • Proximity detection: Like application notification but trigger occurs only if the beacon is moved a specified distance from the running experience. For example, show information for items lifted away from a shelf. Freak out your guests!
  • URL broadcast: Running IntuiFace experiences act like Eddystone-URL beacons, broadcasting URLs for user-selected items. These URLs can be picked up by any mobile device supporting Eddystone-URL - e.g. Android tablets. Broadcasting is available on Windows only. Sorry other platforms!

New value converters for binding. However, still no way to turn lead into gold….

  • Is Equal To: Compares two values and returns true or false. Found in the list of Math & Logic binding converters. It’s nice to get a black-and-white answer once in a while.
  • URL Shortener: Converts any URL into a 16 character URL. Very useful for the URL broadcast feature mentioned above. They’re also cute.

Plus many smaller enhancements and a bunch of bug fixes. All details can be found in our user friendly Release Notes.

v 5.3.3
March 31, 2016

Web Browser asset no longer causes a crash when JavaScript-enabled buttons are clicked. Description is here.
