New OpenRemote user - great software / solution.

Just wondering if there are any plans to add iPhone 5 support to your iOS app soon? It would be great to utilize the Retina Display and the extra screen space on the 5.

I don't have a iphone but im curious of how you think a retina display would make a difference or improve things?
Can't you just make your own custom screen size to suit the new iphone resolution?

Plan yes. Time and date, not yet.

Unfortunately just increasing the screen resolution with custom screen size only works with Android devices. iOS likes to be different

Of course they do

Thanks for the update - looking forward to the larger screen support.

the iphone 5 resolution is still not working.

if i create a custom panel with 320*568 it give a bigger panen in the designer but if i upload it to the controller and then to my phone still the old size of iphone 4.

when can this be solved?

or am i doing something wrong?

We need to release a new version of the iOS console to support that.
If you're an iOS dev, you can get the current source code from Github and build it.
There are still bugs in there but 4" screen size is supported.

Since the ipad app has no plans to be fixed any time soon, can I assume there are no plans for this iphone app to be fixed as well??? Especially since these requests were made nearly 2 years ago. Frustrating because I opted to pay for the Pro Designer, for two reasons, it was a software package that is promising and since I don't have the level of coding knowledge to help support development, I wanted to help support it in some way, by paying and passing the word on to others.

It would be nice if this could be added as a priority.... hard to believe nobody uses iphones

I have also been waiting for an update of the Console for iPhones.
It would be nice if this could become a higher priority.

I am currently using an iPhone 6, and my app looks terrible since the picture gets pulled both in hight and width.

Please bump this up on the priority list!

I'm also waiting to see OpenRemote to be fully compatible with the most recent iOS version.

Too bad I'm not a coder, else I would have devoted my time to help out.

Here also a iphone 6 user.
As I understand the openremote app has to be changed.
The last update was almost 3 years ago.

Is there an upcoming update ?
