    What's New in V2.8?
    The code has been re written to enable some very important features such as,
    1) Multiple Google Map Markers with popup window images linking to Panoramas or external URLs (located in Data.js file at the top of page as a Stack Array)
    2) iPhone & iPad Menu now slides left right instead of popping up which used to take up precious screen space and forced the user to constantly use the plus and minus button
    3) iPhone and iPad menu can now have unlimited menu buttons for external links or whatever you want
    4) Info text now is Swipe Up / Down (used to be Left/Right) Also opens up next pano automatically positioning the Thumbnail at the top of the field highlighted
    5) You can now add Unlimited Panoramas without altering the width numbers in Sroller Li section of the CSS
    6) Buttons stay visibly selected when they are active, fully adjustable through the Active area in the CSS
    7) New perfected App like Gyroscope, arguably the smoothest in the industry
    8) Loading now has a black background until all cube faces are cached (used to load showing individual cubes)
    9) General bug fixes and smoother operation and user experience

    iPad 1 Crashes every now and then!
    NOTE iPad 1 users: iPad 1 was a first generation device, released into the market with a similar amount of RAM and Processor as iPhone 3G S which wasn't much, they are not as capable as native iOS5 devices and therefore are prone to struggling with todays iOS5 Apps. Market trends indicate that 95% of users update their iPhones and other Smart devices such as Tablets every 24 months at the end of their contract, not because there is anything wrong with the devices but mostly because the Telco company will give you a new model if you renew your contract for the next 24 months. According to these industry trends this means that the already small 22% market share of every day iPad 1 users will fall drastically in the first 2-3 months after the iPad 3 is released and will continue to do so thereafter.

    What is 'Commenting Out'
    We use the term 'Comment Out' for turning off features in iOSVR. For example if you want to get rid of the Twitter Button in the menu bar, you would go to the Index file, find the menu section and place this at the start of the line <!-- and this at the end > in order to turn the feature off.

    Why is my tour working on one iPad but not another
    We strongly recommend to clear cache after a few reloads just so that the devices are fresh. You can do this by: Close the tour window in Safari browser, close Safari browser, go to device desktop and open Settings, go to Safari, delete cache. This is probably why it was working on one iPad but not the other. Repeat this process during building your tours, it will stop you getting frustrated for no reason.

    What's NEW in iOSVR v1.2
    New Tools Menu Tab (replaces the old SHARE button)
    Gyroscope feature enabled, On/Off, Able to set the sensitivity of the Gyro in the index file. Turn Gyro On and hold device to pan around, It's like a window into another dimension.

    Audio as background for entire tour now available,
    If there is no audio set in the data.js file for each pano but it is set in the index.html file in the audio.src, then that audio will play for all panos as background for entire tour.

    Fixed an issue when loading in landscape mode, now when devices load in landscape mode a text will appear asking the user to turn device to portrait mode to start tour.
    Fixed an issue where iOSVR trial mode wouldn't work on some servers unless we unlocked the domain first.

    How many panoramas can iOSVR handle?

    iOSVR is not working on my old original iPad is there anything I can do?
    The first iPad that came out was very limited in hardware, Ram memory and processor speed. It is therefore recommended that you reduce the file sizes for viewing on the first generation iPads. We recommend 1024px cubes as a standard however for the oder devices you might want to try cubes at 768px. This should reduce the load on the memory and available processor resources. iOSVR is built for the iOS5 platform, while we are backward compatible it is impossible to reverse engineer iOSVR to cater for all first generation devices.

    I have added all the extra panos but the tour is not working
    When adding more than 6 panos you must make changes in both the data.js and the index.html files.

    data.js
    you have to make sure when copying the pano section and pasting it for additional panos that you also maintain the numbering system (p1, p2, p3) and at the bottom of the page is another important line that also has to reflect all the pano numbers - please refer to the data.js file in your folder.

    index.html the navigation scroll menu is also important to get right - you must maintain the numbering system as seen in the code as well as the numbering of the thumbnails which are named thmb1.jpg and so on. Look for this line inside the index.html file -- Scroll Navigation Menu --

    I have added all the content, panos, photos, text, url links then uploaded but it's not working
    The first thing we tell you to do in the tutorial is to upload the folder to your server first and then start making changes, save and reload your device to view progress changes.
    This is the only way you will know if you have made a mistake. Never do all the programming first before uploading the files to your server.
    Go back and start again. Always download a fresh copy of iOSVR from our website to ensure you have the latest and greatest version.

    I wan't to use iOSVR but don't have an iPhone or iPad - is there a way that I can still see what I'm doing?
    Yes and No.
    If you are a PC user and don't have an iPhone or iPad then the answer is no.
    If you are a Mac user then you don't need an iPhone or iPad to produce iOSVR tours all you need is to download the FREE iDeveloper Kit from Apple and use the iOS Simulator right from your Mac computer. It's awesome that's what we use for all our research and development, you can easily switch between devices at a click of a button. Priceless!

    What's the best way to sell iOSVR to my clients?
    The best selling tool for you is to show your clients an A & B comparison, show them iOSVR side by side with another iDevice software. The tools of your trade are your assets, we encourage our users to have more than one iDevice software to show their clients, there is no better selling tool than giving your clients the choice of two or three, and let them decide.

    Statistics show that if given the choice of two the client is more likely to choose one as they will base their decision on the look and features of one over the other. If only the choice of one is given they have no comparison and are more likely to make an uninformed decision and potentially say no altogether.

    Why do I have to pay $99 per domain license?
    Our software doesn't have a serial number system, to protect againast piracy we protect our software by locking it to a domain.
    You actually only have to pay for your own domain license once, you can then create as many tours as you want under that domain and you can have unlimited subdomains. it is your clients who are paying for their domain license, all you need to do is build the license cost into their fee.
