Support for Apple's iPhone X is among upgrades in a new version of Newscycle's Newscycle's mobile software.
Other features enhance user experience, create new revenue opportunities and simplify app management.
Newscycle Mobile 4.28 software includes a new video gallery and player, photo gallery improvements, article stream enhancements, app navigation updates, and colour options.
Released in September 2017, the iPhone X features an all-new 5.8 inch edge-to-edge Super Retina display. Designed to deliver an immersive, content-rich experience the iPhone X adds an additional 20 per cent of vertical screen space for content. To add support for iPhone X, the Newscycle Mobile team converted apps to iOS 11 and created a new user interface.
Prior to the 4.28 release, Newscycle Mobile apps utilized the more traditional 'letterbox' format. With the latest release, news streams, articles, radar, videos and photos have all been optimized on apps running on iPhone X.
Newscycle Mobile article streams have been redesigned in preparation for the future of mixed media streams. Updates include support for sharing directly from an article stream; bigger, bolder and better fonts; photo size detection; and the ability to play audio directly from the stream.
Additionally to streamline apps, the core navigation has been updated to be brighter, customisable and take up less space. Options for full colour top bars and colour throughout the user interface adds life and branding to the entire app.
