Player for Kiosks - Android.
Current version is v.5.7.4, released
Snapshots of Version 5.6 or earlier experiences in Management
Console and the Composer/Player Experiences panel now update
consistently. No more yelling, "Hey! I fixed that already!"
Gave the Web
Browser asset a good once-over
For select websites, scrolling works again. (If you haven't run
into this problem, don't worry about it.)
Touching on-page Combo and Check boxes no longer causes the
keyboard to display
Keyboard correctly opens when a form field is selected even in
some edge cases
configured to do so, Player for Windows will restart even if
the PC firewall blocks some ports. Computer ports, not those things

names. Not a very descriptive naming convention but we don't

Card Design Accelerator no longer - for some odd reason -
changes the "Scratched percentage" parameter of the "Reaches
In Play Mode and Player, if all items in the Scroll
Collection are either immediately visible or scrolled into

Player for Windows agent - used by the
remote deployment feature - now launches when a password-free
Windows session is automatically started upon system boot.
14+ additional minor bugs and 3 crashes conditions have been
corrected. That's "minor" as in not affecting most users, not bugs
under the age of 16.
Excel spreadsheets - accessed via the
Excel interface asset - can now reference files with the htm,
html, css, and js extensions, causing those referenced files to be
published with the rest of the project from Composer. If you don't
know what those file types are then this is an issue you never had
to worry about.
GIFs larger than 2 million pixels are converted into a smaller
memory consuming image format. This will prevent excessive memory
consumption caused by large
animated GIFs. What are you, lazy? Make a video!
Edge cases causing breakage of updated interface assets have
been eliminated. Most commonly, this issue affected use of the
Clock interface asset.
Correction of 4 bugs affecting the
Excel interface asset when used by Player for Tablets and
Player for Kiosks. That's right, Player for Windows was playing by

Collection: Place assets and collections on a large canvas
visible through a window. Move the canvas in any direction with
swipe or mouse gestures, revealing different parts of the canvas
within the window. It's the microwave of IntuiFace: you didn't know
how much you needed it until you tried it.
Button sets: Enhancement of the Toggle Button control,
automatically permitting one and only one Toggle Button within a
set of buttons to be checked. Yes, show-off, it's like a radio
Speech Recognition Interface Asset: (Windows only) Use the
spoken word as a trigger for one or more actions. Supports 26
different languages. "IntuiFace, make me dinner!"
Google Analytics Connector: Automatically load data points
collected by the
data tracking feature of IntuiFace into any one or more of your
Google Analytics properties.
To give you more freedom to try out our
data tracking capability, we've removed limits on the number of
data points that can be created by Composer. It is only for Player
that you need to consider purchasing a
Data Point Plan.
Player for Kiosks now supports Samsung SMART Signage Platform 4
- aka SSSP4 - known for its support of the Tizen-based operating
system. In addition, Player for Kiosks has ended support for
Samsung SMART Signage Platform 3 (aka SSSP3). -"Change language"

30+ languages supported. You'll find this action next to the "Call
URL" and "Launch application" actions for the "Overall experience"
in the Triggers & Actions panel.
Speaking of the "Launch Application" and "Call URL" actions,
their parameters can now be derived from an external source via

accounts or new storage needs. Those already using Dropbox for
experience storage should prepare for discontinued support in
June-2017. IntuiLab will continue to support IntuiFace Cloud
Storage, FTP/FTPS and Amazon AWS/S3.
Player for Tablets on the iPad has ended support for iOS 8 or
earlier. iPad users must be running no less than iOS 9.
Player for Kiosks has ended support for Samsung SMART Signage
Platform 3 (aka SSSP3)
Eliminates Player and Composer Play Mode crashes linked to use
of the Video asset. Doesn’t happen consistently but could
affect all users of Version 5.6 so don’t delay your

here for guidelines. Or did we make those guidelines
Transparent experience backgrounds: (Windows only) A mind
blower. Show third party apps running behind Player and even enable
users to interact with both IntuiFace and third party apps at the
same time. Also referred to as a transparent Player, you're not
going to believe your eyes.
"Fill behavior" property: Permits greater control over how
images, videos, webcam feeds and image buttons are displayed within
their container. Options include fit, fill and deform.
Animated GIF support: Animated GIFs (with or without
transparency) are hip again and IntuiFace is as cool as a cucumber

Use of the Video
asset’s “Show Last Image” option no longer
prevents video rewind
Excel bindings are properly established when - to create an
Excel interface asset - drag-and-drop is used with a single
column Excel spreadsheet, referencing external media, and the
associated media folder. If you ever wondered what an “edge
case” is, now you know.
The Open Street Map provider for the Map collection
has been changed from MapQuest to Mapbox. The reasons for this

asset will no longer autoplay. “Hear me!” it said
but it had to wait its turn.

Multiple corrections in Player for Tablet/Kiosk. The word
‘correction’ is a nice way of saying bugs. These
corrections are listed
Design for accessibility, because 1 in 7 people worldwide
possess some kind of disability
Text-to-speech: Generate speech for both static and dynamic
text. (Windows only) You should check it out; you’re a bit of
Keyboard triggers: Key presses can act as
triggers for any IntuiFace actions. For example, use arrow keys
for navigation. The keyboard is no longer just a pretty face.
Gestures for static assets: Any onscreen gesture initiated on a
static asset can act as a
trigger for any IntuiFace actions. Don’t overdo it or
it’ll look like you’re massaging the screen.
Support for beacons using the iBeacon™ and
Eddystone™ protocols. Why care? It means your experiences can
know what is brought near them; you can then do something about it.
Application notification (i.e. beacon detection): Capture
unique ID of any beacon brought near a running experience and use
that ID to trigger specific actions, show specific data, etc. This
is very cool stuff.
Proximity detection: Like application notification but trigger
occurs only if the beacon is moved a specified distance from the
running experience. For example, show information for items lifted
away from a shelf. Freak out your guests!
URL broadcast: Running IntuiFace experiences act like
Eddystone-URL beacons, broadcasting URLs for user-selected items.
These URLs can be picked up by any mobile device supporting
Eddystone-URL - e.g. Android tablets. Broadcasting is available on
Windows only. Sorry other platforms!
value converters for binding. However, still no way to turn
lead into gold….
Is Equal To: Compares two values and returns true or false.
Found in the list of
Math & Logic binding converters. It’s nice to get a
black-and-white answer once in a while.
URL Shortener: Converts any URL into a 16 character URL. Very
useful for the URL broadcast feature mentioned above. They’re
Default Web browser asset now stores cookies as files, enabling
continuity between multiple Player sessions. We’ll never
Major performance improvements in Player for Tablets on the
iPad. We’re squeezing every drop out of that stingy

stable when IAs and converters are used. Nobody likes leakage!
Experiences in portrait mode have now correct thumbnails in
Composer and on Management Console. (We’ve also put portraits
in experience mode…. Ok, not really.)
"Allow navigation" property of the Web
Browser asset works again. We told it to get a job!

Corrected crash condition that occurred when running Composer's
“Player for Tablets and Kiosks” Preview Mode on 32-bit
Additional 6 edge-case crash conditions were fixed.
Brand new rendering engine for the Web
Browser asset. Based on CefSharp, it offers complete HTML5,
CSS3 and WebGL support. Also much faster and more reliable then the
older Web Browser asset.
NOTE: Preexisting experiences will continue to use the legacy
browser. To use the new rendering engine in preexisting
experiences, you must explicitly change the Web Browser asset
container from the "Legacy" style to the "Default" style.
Free experience storage option, aka
IntuiFace Cloud Storage. This will be the default option when
publishing an experience. Zero configuration required. You can
still use your own Amazon S3, Dropbox or FTP site as alternatives.
