Android "Share" functionality

Post by simon.schvartzman » Tue Feb 05, 2019 9:41 pm

May be my questions is pretty obvious (as I guess many are) but after spending some time on the forum I really need help.

I want an Android App to be able to perform the same functionality that mergPop delivers for iOS.

Reading the forum it seems there is (was?) a mergPopToast external that did it (part of mergAndroid). Further reading explains that mergAndroid is (was) only available for people who own mergExt...

Question: as an owner of a LC Indy license how can I do in order to use mergAndroid (or equivalent) ?

What am I not seeing?

Many thanks for any clarification...
Simon

I got mergAmdroid when it was announced, mostly for the toast ability. When I tried it later in LC 8 it crashed LC. A lot has changed since it was first released so it seems the original version is no longer compatible. The toast feature was added to the engine recently so I'm using that now. I think you'll need to put in a feature request for the other things mergAmdroid used to do.

Android externals are apparently much harder to integrate than iOS ones and they are lagging far behind.

Thanks Jacque, I will do as suggested and I've also sent an email so support@LC to check if there are some alternatives.

Best!
Simon
