Player Next Gen continues to roll on. As all of our pre-release users can attest, we've continually added capability in preparation for general availability. Last week was no exception. Here's what we added:
The first update is the ability to convert web-deployed experiences into Progressive Web Apps (PWAs), which you can think of as Intuiface experiences looking and acting like stand-alone apps. Some of our longtime customers might remember an "Experience as an app" service we offered years ago. Well, now you can do it yourself!
The second is the introduction of a new licensing option enabling web and PWA deployments to work with in-venue Player licenses - the licenses you've been using on Windows, BrightSign, Android, etc. for years. With this approach, web/PWA experiences can run offline like a kiosk for a predetermined length of time. (You could already use Views Licensing for web deployments, a license permitting a certain number of views. Great for audiences of an unknown size, but offline use isn't possible.)

In case you weren't aware, we're letting folks try out Player Next Gen before its official release. If you're interested in getting your hands on it, let us know!

On April 5th at 10am New York / 4pm Paris, we will host our fourth "Quarterly Q&A LIVE". In it, Intuiface's CMO, Geoff Bessin, and Intuiface's lead Customer Success Manager, Sebastien Meunier, will tackle some of our favorite questions from the past few months. These questions will be pulled from Tech Support inquiries, User Community conversations, consultation discussions, and more.
Pros and cons of using experience layers and design accelerators to create experience 'style sheets'
Design technique for displaying a variable number of similar items (e.g. a shopping list)
Approach for showing analytics data and dashboards within a running experience

Need more evidence that Intuiface is super cool? We've created experiences using GPT and DALL-E and you can use them today! All you require is your own OpenAI API key - all of which we explain in our dedicated Help Center article.
In these experiences we use DALL-E to create images based on user selections, and we use GPT to answer questions - both preselected questions you can choose or your own question submitted by mobile phone. (Yes, by phone!)
There are two versions of the same experience: one for running in Player on Windows and one running in Player Next Gen. Why two versions? Well that's another reason to read our Help Center article. ;-) Just download the experience, run it in the appropriate version of Composer's Play Mode, and have fun!
