Twigmo 3.9: New themes, RTL support and more

It’s been a while since our latest update, so Twigmo 3.9 brings a lot of new features.

Two new themes

We added two themes: Flat and Jewel. The total number of Twigmo themes has now reached eleven. As usual, these two skins are available for the Plus and Platinum plans.

Right-to-left layout support

Right-to-left layout will be automatically activated for appropriate languages (Arabic, Hebrew, etc).

Product list layout improved

A lot of our clients asked us about adding prices to the grid layout. So, we fulfilled their request. Now prices and other information are displayed in the grid layout. Also, we added an additional layout with bigger images.

New settings in Twigmo Visual Editor

We added an ability to choose default product list layout to the Visual Editor. Also, you can hide the Share tab from the product details page.

Partial support of the Comments and reviews add-on

An ability to read product reviews has been added. If a product has reviews, they are now displayed in a separate tab on the product details page.

Integration with Searchanise

Fast and relevant search is now available for mobile users. If the Searchanise add-on is active in your store, the Searchanise service will be used to perform product search.

Add-on Upgrade

If you are a Twigmo 3.0 or above user, you will receive a notification about the available add-on upgrade in your CS-Cart admin panel. You can start the upgrade from the Twigmo add-on settings page; the rest is done automatically.

Twigmo 3.8: Platinum plan release

Hello,

For the last few months our team has been working hard on a long-awaited feature – the Platinum plan that brings an ability to create a native mobile application for your stores. Today it is available for Twigmo 3.8 users.

So let’s look closer at it.

The design of the application is similar to the Twigmo mobile front-end. However, it has a slightly different layout – the navigation menu and the footer moved to the side menu.

The application has the same color scheme and content as your mobile storefront (powered by Twigmo). In order to see the application look-and-feel, please use the new selector we added to the Twigmo Visual Editor.

All the Twigmo Mobile front-end features are available in the application. It also brings a new feature – push notifications.

There are two types of notifications. The first type is about order status changing. A customer will receive such a notification simultaneously with the e-mail notification. The administrator can turn on/off these notifications on the Twigmo add-on settings page.

The second type is the broadcast notification. The store administrator can send a message to all users of his/her mobile application. The message form is located in the Push notifications tab on the Twigmo add-on settings page.

Creating and uploading mobile applications to the Apple App Store and Google Play is quite a tricky and time-consuming thing. However, we did our best to make it as easy as possible for our clients.

We will publish applications under our developer account. It means that you don’t have to pay for such an account (the iOS Developer Program annual fee is USD 99). Also, you do not need to have such skills as compiling, signing and publishing the application.

To create an application, you will need to provide the following:

  • Application’s name, description, etc.
  • Graphical assets: a hi-res icon, a splash screen, and a banner for Google Play.
  • Screenshots of your application (our service will generate them automatically after you provide the URLs of your store pages).

We will do the rest: build the application and upload it to the Apple App Store and Google Play. These operations take some time, therefore it will cost USD 69 (a one-time fee for the application set-up).

If you would like to see our demo applications in action, please click on the icons below to install them.

      

As usual, the new version of the add-on includes minor bug fixes. Also, we added a new feature to Visual Editor – an ability to increase the size of the logo. You can find this setting in the new Logo section.

Add-on Upgrade

If you are a Twigmo 3.0 or above user, you will receive a notification about the available add-on upgrade in your CS-Cart admin panel. You can start the upgrade from the Twigmo add-on settings page; the rest is done automatically.
