Connections/Verse not running on Android Nougat, yet

by Volker Weber

Heads up from IBM. Both Connections and Verse clients don't work on Android Nougat. If you don't want to be cut off, postpone that update until after IBM releases the next version in September.

I think they are also way behind on iOS. Last time I looked they did not support iPhone 5S features (TouchID), nor 6 (resolution), let alone 6S (3D Touch). I hope nothing breaks with iOS 10. Nougat is only available on a few devices, iOS 10 on most.

Comments

Blaming it on an early release of Nougat seems like a lame excuse for bad planning on their own side.

Google weiß da mehr...

Zu Touch-ID in Verse siehe den Artikel von Thomas Hampel vom März diesen Jahres: http://blog.thomashampel.com/blog/tomcat2000.nsf/dx/enable-apple-touchid-support-in-ibm-verse-mobile-app-for-ibm-connections-cloud-users.htm

Touch-ID in Connections: http://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSYGQH_5.5.0/admin/overview/r_mobile_config_properties.html

Ob Touch-ID für Verse in IBM Connections Cloud mittlerweile auch "offiziell" unterstützt wird, kann ein Kunde bei Bedarf sicher über den IBM Support in Erfahrung bringen.
Ich nutze meine iOS Geräte in Verbindung mit MaaS360. Nach Authentifizierung per Touch-ID kann ich sowohl die Connections als auch die Verse app ohne weitere Passwortabfrage nutzen.

Das ist ja der Hit. Wer denkt sich denn sowas aus? Ein Feature, das man nicht nutzen kann, es sei denn, man ändert das Design des Enterprise Directory, damit man ein Optionsfeld bekommt, mit dem man das Feature aktivieren kann.

Gibt es da noch mehr so Schalter? DoNotLookLikeiOS6, SupportHigherResolution, Make3DtouchWork, oder sowas?
