    Is there an ability to disable the icon gloss setting in Icenium? From what I've read you have to toggle a setting in the .plist file. Is there anyway to do this currently?

    Hi Justin,

    Unfortunately there is not easy way to do that currently. You can reopen your ipa file, add the necessary key/value to info.plist and resign it. But resigning can be done only on Mac and you need to have a good understanding of what is going on. If it is that important and you have Mac available I can walk you through it.

    I would advise you to write a suggestion on our feedback portal. We prioritize our work based on our feedback portal votes.

    ZAMMY...
    I have a somewaht similar need... with file "Cordova.plist"...
    where I need the value of "OpenAllWhitelistURLsInWebView"set to 'true'...
    THE IPA FILE CREATED using Icenium MIST, has this value set to 'false.
    So, HOW can I get this done ?... (I have a MacinCloud MAC account )

    ALTERNATIVELY,  If you have a "procedure" to FORCE an external URL
    to display INSIDE a UIWebView ( for both iOS and Android), that would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks, HJ

    Hi HJ,

    Did you considered Child Browser plugin as an option in your scenario? We will log a story for exposing more properties or even the whole Cordova.plist for editing.

    But if you think that there is great demand for that please log it at Icenium Feedback portal so we can prioritize it according user votes.

    Jordan...
    Thanks a million for your prompt answer.
    I did try your suggestion ref. using "ChildBrowser"...
    and found some "strange ?" behavior in both iPhone-4 and iPad-2...  (all OK in Android vs 2.3, vs 4.0, vs 4.1) ...
    At times (unpredictably), the UIWebview fails to materialize under iOS ( vs 5.0.1, vs 6.0).
    and we get some kind or "error reporting" (using your code in Sample-ChildBrowser)
    Question: where can I find your LOG for...
        "exposing more properties or even the whole Cordova.plist for editing." ???...
    THANKS again.

    Hi HJ,

    Our release backlog is not public, but our feature request portal is public for our community to vote and log new requests at feedback.icenium.com.

    Can you share with us this "error reporting" when Child Browser crash on iOS and if this is just our sample code or with some modifications?

    Hi guys,

    Since v.1.6 we've given you full control by adding the ability to make configuration changes to your app by modifying the Info.plist and config.xml for iOS (and AndroidManifest.xml and config.xml for Android respectively) directly in the Icenium code editor. For more information, see Edit Configuration Files.

    To remove the gloss on icons, you need to find the UIPrerenderedIcon key and modify its value to true:
    Copy Code
    <key>UIPrerenderedIcon</key>
    <true/>

    For iOS 5 or later, it should be added to one more place:
    Copy Code
    <dict>
            <key>CFBundleIconFiles</key>
            <array>
                <string>Icon.png</string>
                <string>Icon@2x.png</string>
                <string>Icon-72.png</string>
            </array>
            <key>UIPrerenderedIcon</key>
            <true/>
        </dict>

    Please refer to Apple's documentation for such settings.
