About box equivalent for mobile apps?

In desktop apps, at least on the Mac, one has an “About” box where you can put acknowledgements of the use of copyright material and any other info like the version number of the app. There isn’t such a provision in a mobile app, is there? Is there any convention for this that I’ve missed, or

Graham, did you check in your Apple developer account if the provisioning profile is still valid? Maybe it has expired. That would explain why it is not working anymore. - Matthias Rebbe Life Is Too Short For Boring Code > Am 22.05.2020 um 10:51 schrieb Graham Samuel via use-livecode > : >

Sorry, how does this apply to a mobile app which hasn’t got a menu in an explicit sense - of course I can provide a ‘menu’ item, i.e. some kind of choice the user can make (I do in fact have a ’settings’ card in the app I’m producing, so that could be somewhere to put it), but it’s not

Hello Graham, Hmm ok, that's strange. Could you make sure the provisioning profile has not expired, and it is still valid, as Matthias suggested? There is no need to download 9.6 RC-2 for that, we have not changed anything that could cause this issue. Kind regards, Panos -- On Fri, 22 May 2020

Just realised that the image sizes I suggested are for landscape, so if your app uses portrait, just swap the width with the height. On Sun, 17 May 2020 at 21:35, Colin Holgate via use-livecode < use-livecode@lists.runrev.com> wrote: > What I’ve done for a while is to use a flat color that is

Oh, I see. If the provisioning profile is of type "AppStore", then it is a Distribution profile, so you will not be able to use this profile for installing the app directly to your device. You need an iOS Development profile for being able to install the app on the device. Regards, Panos On

My x3 splash is already smaller than the largest real requirement for an iPhone, 1242 x 2688. Mine is only 2048 x 2732. So you could argue that my x3 splash should be even larger than I’ve supplied. I don’t see why the system doesn’t pick the smallest size that will fit - so for my iPhone XS
