A new generation of Como-powered apps is now available—based on a new React technology and with newly designed screens and flows to provide a better user experience. The app provides significant improvements in appearance, usability, and performance, along with flexibility in design.
Instead of pre-defined layouts, the new design concept provides a home screen based on widgets—which present a concise dashboard of data, along with images and buttons. It also offers better navigation options (with a navigation bar), a scrollable home screen, and more.
Existing businesses can request to migrate their apps if they don’t require a capabilitity that isn’t yet supported (see below). A new gen app requires dedicated Hub configurations and submitting it to the app stores as a new gen app.
The following widgets, screens and button actions are currently supported for React apps.
*This action now lets you show the code as number only, QR or barcode (App Settings > Code Display).
Any feature or capability not listed above is not currently supported by the new gen app, such as:
- No direct in-store payments with in-app credit cards (only through preloaded credit)
- No photo gallery
- No custom screens
- No scan QR codes
- No beacons
- No Appsflyer (external app analytics platform)
- No scan receipt (used to take a picture)
