Improve user experience in mobile apps (8.3)

Suggest edit Updated on May 3, 2021

Improve the user experience in mobile apps that are built with Pega Mobile Client™ and Pega Infinity Mobile Client™ by using the following features:

Improved spaces component

Promote collaboration between users of mobile apps that you build with Pega Infinity Mobile Client. With the enhanced spaces component, which now occupies the whole screen area, mobile users can navigate between content tabs such as Pulse, Boards, Subspaces, and Tasks. With native selection controls, mobile users can choose from the same space-specific actions that are available to users of desktop-based applications, for example, Refresh, Edit space, Pin to space, Leave space, or Delete space.

Bottom bar with additional action types

Users can now save time and perform various actions directly from the bottom bar of the mobile app. When you configure the layout of the Pega Infinity Mobile Client-based mobile app, you can be flexible and define a bottom bar that includes such actions as creating a case, logging out, running a script, or displaying a menu.

Customizable fonts for native components of the mobile app

Improve the readability of the screen content or comply to your custom branding. Native elements of mobile apps that you build with Pega Infinity Mobile Client contain both text and icons. You can now modify the skins that define the styling of the native header and the bottom bar, and then build mobile app executable files that include your selected font packages. With the font files included in the executable files, the mobile app displays correctly on every device.

Improved Attach content control

Users can now attach any type of files from the device storage, or from other mobile apps that are installed on the device, for example, Google Drive, iCloud, Audio Recorder, or Camera. When you build mobile apps with Pega Infinity Mobile Client, they now use the enhanced Attach content control, which also supports sharing file attachments with external mobile apps, except for signature files.
