Change Release Notes
So I've been on holidays - which means more time spent on new features. I seem to be the most inspired when I am on vacation *shrug*. In this case, it's a pretty big deal to EZ-Robot users. Specifically regarding the Mobile ARC.
Mobile Interface Builder
Now everyone can make Robot Apps for your iOS or Android mobile phone or tablet - without programming! Introducing the Mobile Interface Builder with Drag'n'Drop functionality for creating robot apps for your mobile device!
There is a new control under Add Control in ARC located in the new Mobile category. This new control is an interface builder for mobile apps. By default, if you do not have any mobile interfaces, the default ARC Desktop #1 will be displayed. However, if you use the Interface Builder to build apps, you can specify which interface will be displayed.
*Note: You may specify which control is default displayed in the Project Details menu. It doesn't have to be a Interface Builder. It can be any control - Camera, Wii, Script, Connection, Etc.. Just specify by it's name.
The interface builder configuration menu allows you to specify a background for your robot interface. Then, start adding buttons for a variety of features. For example, there are buttons for movements, scripts, connection, camera, sliders and more. Each button actually acts as a script, so you can add EZ-Script to the button press. If your script loops, the button will turn red for when it is running. Press again and the script exits.
All of the features are testable in the Windows ARC - except the Camera view. This is because the camera view in ARC displays in it's own viewport already. It can't display in two separate places, that's just silly
I included the demo app from the photo above in the Examples\Mobile Apps folder.
Instructions to view demo app:
1) Press Open
2) Select Examples button
3) Double click on Mobile Apps
4) Select Revolution Six with Wii
All ARC projects run on the Mobile version. The mobile version is compatible with Android and iOS devices. The mobile app will be released for Android in beta within the next week or two. The iOS version is developed along side the Android version. The iOS version will take longer to be released due to the Apple iTunes review process.
The mobile version of ARC does not require a computer. It is a standalone application that lets you control your robot from your mobile device.
