Valid from Pega Version 8.3

Mobile apps now support hiding the top and bottom bars when the user scrolls down. When the user scrolls up, the bars appear again. This enhancement improves the mobile user experience by presenting more data on the screen, for example, a longer list of items.

For more information, see Advanced layout options.

Valid from Pega Version 8.3

Android and iOS mobile apps now display a skeleton before the initial screen loads, which enhances user experience and provides faster response to user actions on complex mobile screens or over slow networks. Until the initial screen is ready to be displayed, Pega Platform™ displays an empty placeholder that imitates the actual user interface.

Skeletons for the initial screen in mobile apps do not require any additional configuration.

Valid from Pega Version 8.3

Case management in custom mobile apps that are built for Android and iOS using Pega Infinity Mobile Client™ is now improved with the enhanced Attach content control. You can now attach files of any type from the device storage and from cloud services, for example, Google Drive or iCloud, or from other mobile apps that are installed on the device. Additionally, you can share any file attachments, except for signature files, in external mobile apps.

For more information, see Enabling attaching files to an application.

Valid from Pega Version 8.3

To take advantage of Pega Platform™ offline features, you can now build offline-enabled applications using Pega Infinity Mobile Client™. An offline-enabled application is built with Pega Infinity Mobile Client by default, and is fast to create and load. 

For more information, see Build offline-enabled applications using Pega Infinity Mobile Client, Offline-enabled application and Pega Infinity Mobile Client, and Pega Mobility and mobile clients.

Valid from Pega Version 8.3

For offline-enabled applications built using Pega Infinity Mobile Client™, you can now take advantage of a new window.pms.plugins.clientstore JavaScript API. The improved API is based on promises and events instead of callbacks and listeners, and replaces the previously available window.launchbox.PRPC.ClientStore JavaScript API which is now deprecated.

Valid from Pega Version 8.3

Pega Infinity Mobile Client™ now provides more flexible bottom bar configuration with a broader choice of actions, so that your apps can be more useful. For example, users can now create work items, open work items, or log out directly from the bottom bar of a mobile app.

For more information, see Configuring the bottom bar.

Valid from Pega Version 8.3

Pega Infinity Mobile Client™ now provides a development kit that you can use to make mobile apps support advanced device features that are typically available to native applications, for example, an embedded laser scanner or a projector module, and integrate functions of external software solutions, for example, a cloud-based file storage.

For more information about enhancing mobile apps with device feature support, see the documentation for the development module in the latest Pega Infinity Mobile Client distribution package on Digital Delivery.

Valid from Pega Version 8.4

Pega Platform™ can now produce a better mobile experience through performance gains and flexible access settings. Apps now support quick-loading native worklists, smooth scrolling and swiping, and query-based search, which improve productivity for mobile users. In addition, you can make your app available to users without authentication, and enhance usability for products that do not require strict security controls.

For more information, see Securing mobile apps.

Valid from Pega Version 8.4

The work environment for mobile app developers in Pega Platform™ is now more intuitive. Because every new out-of-the-box application now comes with a preconfigured mobile channel, you can start building mobile apps straight away. Create a mobile channel from scratch, and then customize it to include specific requirements for your new app.

The following updates enhance the process of building mobile apps:

  • Your application stores all mobile channels as rules. You can reuse these channels across all versions of your mobile apps for more convenient updates.
  • You can now configure contextual search from the mobile channel.
  • You can now create native mobile list pages for the app navigation directly from the mobile channel.
  • You can now add pages from web portals to a mobile app navigation pane, with full support for native mobile features, such as floating action buttons.
  • Mobile channels now support configuration through predefined templates, widgets, and actions.
  • You can now instantly preview your mobile channel configuration to see how the app displays on mobile devices.
  • Configuration of offline support for mobile apps is now available from a single, low-code page.
  • The preview section now offers a low-code pane, from which you can instantly start building a mobile app.
  • The mobile channel now supports adding custom iOS and Android modules.
  • Admin Studio now supports a mobile page, from which you can provide your own Mobile Build Server credentials and decide whether users need to provide authentication to download your mobile app.

Valid from Pega Version 8.4

The updated offline mode in Pega Platform™ now reduces implementation time, enhances the development process, and helps you create a more comprehensive mobile experience for users without a reliable web connection.

The improved offline support includes the following enhancements:

  • Offline-enabled apps now use native mobile UI components, such as headers and bottom bars.
  • Offline mode now supports decision trees for improved case processing. 
  • Users can now process multiple cases simultaneously in separate offline tabs, which leads to higher productivity.
  • Offline-enabled apps now work more efficiently because of improved caching and background synchronization.

For more information, see Working with offline apps.
