Note the ‘tel://’ schema instead of the normal ‘http://’ schema. This is the important bit. You can do this in the HTML editor if you want (i.e.you don’t have to go to code view). Just change the ‘http://’ in the link making tool to ‘tel://’
Diversity & inclusion was last week’s theme. Will hopefully be able to share more about it in some more detail pretty soon but last week saw a group of high school students with EAL giving Blippit a good workout. The activity they undertook in an afternoon resulted in a justifiably proud Head teacher, class teacher and of course critically proud students. Perhaps, for me anyway, significant was the way in which the school chose to share it’s achievements and who it shared them with ie. on Facebook with parents and students.
The second highlight was the subscribing to Blippit of a leading high school for students with special educational needs. Absolutely wonderful and I can’t wait to hopefully (fingers crossed) get in there to see how Blippit will be exploited in the students’ learning there. Hopefully much more to come on that one soon.
You’ve recently asked for:
html tutorials -handy stuff to make exciting things happen
new ways to present navigation including images, different colours
refinements to the way Admin accounts display certain areas of information about the apps
We’re working to deliver these and would like to thank you again for just taking the time and having a go!! Your effort and feedback are phenomenal and it helps massively to improve Blippit week after week.
A year 7 student recently began work on a German app after finding she was enjoying the subject a lot.
Me: “Ah, so it’s a revision app?”
Student: “No, it’s a learning app!”
(Note: The Google Translate feature is not 100% working reliably and it may I am told be removed but for now it’s a cunning bit of integration and simple coding.
Hello again & thanks everyone for their fantastic feedback – without it we’d be like a shopping trolley with a wonky wheel.
This week we’ve just added a small but important detail that had to be held back at launch or it would have delayed going live.
New Feature Update
Our tiny widget property icons now have nice & helpful ‘roll-over’ tips.
New Feature Sneeky Peek!
Great news for all those people who asked from this early on after launch in October Blippit goes customised with App launch icons and splash screens. It may change a bit by the time it goes live but hopefully not much. Typically we’re aiming to enable absolutely everyone to be able to do it leaving the skills focus firmly upon getting the best icon and splash screen made.
