Update on Brandsonic Web

It's been awhile since I updated any version of Brandsonic Web. In fact, there hasn't been any releases of Brandsonic Web in 2017. I just haven't had the time to work on it. School keeps me pretty busy. When I do have free time, I usually spend it doing something programming related. I have not abandoned Brandsonic Web.

Today is one year since I last released an update to Brandsonic Web mobile for iOS. It's long overdue for an update. iOS 10.0.1-10.2 have been jailbroken for awhile now. The current version of Brandsonic Web mobile on Cydia (0.9.8) should work without problems on iOS 10. I am working an an update for Brandsonic Web mobile for iOS and I hope to have it out before the end of the month. I'll make a separate post detailing this update at a later date.

Brandsonic Web for Mac was last updated a little over 3 months ago. That release had basic Touch Bar support. I still plan to expand the Touch Bar support, namely bringing Quick Sites to the Touch Bar. I haven't really started working on this yet, so I don't have an ETA yet. I also plan to bring major new features to Brandsonic Web for Mac in subsequent releases, but again there is no ETA.

I want to thank everyone who's downloaded and supports Brandsonic Web. I will try to release new versions of Brandsonic Web soon.

Downloading Brandsonic Web safely

As I have stated before, you should always download Brandsonic Web from the Brandsonic Apps site, or Download.com. There are a few reasons for this. Downloading from the Brandsonic Apps site or Download.com ensures that you always get the latest version of Brandsonic Web. More importantly, it ensures that you get a file that is not tampered with. I now provide the md5, SHA-1 and SHA-256 hashes for Brandsonic Web for Mac downloads. You will find them on the Brandsonic Web for Mac download page. You can use these hashes to verify your Brandsonic Web download to make sure the file was not tampered with or modified. This should always be done, especially if you must download Brandsonic Web from another source that's not the Brandsonic Apps site or Download.com.

Fix for Brandsonic Web mobile for iOS 0.9.5

It has come to my attention that the latest version of Brandsonic Web mobile for iOS does not start. I have released a small script for Mac/Linux and Windows that will fix the permission error that prevents the app from running. Download from the links below. Be sure to read the Read me first files before you try to use the script.

Update 10/14/15: The bwebfix script was originally written for Brandsonic Web mobile 0.9.5, but it will work will all versions of Brandsonic Web mobile.

The next version of Brandsonic Web mobile for iOS

The next version of Brandsonic Web mobile for iOS will be released soon. Unfortunately, it will require iOS 8.0 or later. Dropping support for iOS 6.0 thru iOS 7.1 was not my choice. Xcode 8 doesn't allow you to make a app for anything older than iOS 8.0.  There is some good news however. This allowed me to better tailor the UI for all iOS devices, and it should work and look better on the newer, larger devices, such as the iPhone 7. Also, Brandsonic Web mobile for iOS will be a 64 bit app for the first time. This is to ensure compatibly with future versions of iOS. This release will also include official iOS 10 support. I will test this release over the next few days and I hope to have it released by the end of next week. This release does have one visual bug with the address bar, but I don't want to delay the release any more, so I will be releasing it with this bug. It's nothing major, and doesn't take away from the usability of the app. There aren't any new fea…
