iOS 4.7.0 (xxx) - MAY Release

May 28, 2024 LATEST VERSION

What's new:

  • Handling timeouts on start charging event (Roaming): We adjusted behavior on roaming sessions to cover a use case where we don’t get data on charging session from the roaming partner, but the session has started. In this case app will behave as charging session did start and it will give user an option to manually stop it on charging screen. Users will not get to “Check if your vehicle is plugged in correctly” anymore in roaming scenarios. ON-2850

  • Updated layout in My Wallet: We have rearranged the layout of the My Wallet section in the application. The layout is now the same on both platforms. ON-2457

  • Updated layout in Location info: We have rearranged the layout of Location information. The layout is now the same on both platforms. ON-2678

  • Red alerts on Helpdesk: We are introducing new red alerts also on the support level where we want to give users a clear indication if their support ticket were answered already or not in case they miss the push notification. ON-2771

Bug fixes:

  • Changed a button name from CANCEL to CLOSE when ending the current session. ON-2506

  • Greek letters are now allowed to be used on the registration form. ON-2834

  • The forgot password button translation was not correctly displayed. This now shows the appropriate translation defined in the operator portal. ON-2838

  • We adjusted the two-step user delete account feature when it is managed by an external help-desk system. It will now open external URL immediately when user clicks on “Delete account” button from My profile form without showing pre-delete screen. ON-2849

 


iOS 4.6.0 (xxx) - APR Release

April 24, 2024

What's new:

  • Handling timeouts on start charging event: We have made some tweaks when the sessions start to cover edge cases where user is not plugging in his vehicle. After 35s app will timeout and display most possible reason for a timeout → vehicle not connected yet. ON-2443

image-20240423-135716.png
  • Handled Apple warnings: Apple started reminding our partners to improve certain API declarations inside our apps. We tackled this inside our code to avoid any issues with app uploads in the future.

  • Updated external linking on help desk: If you have set an external link to the help desk, this URL is now displayed in-app as a web page. The tab for the tickets is removed from the app in such a scenario. ON-2565

  • Delete account functionality is now implemented differently. When a user requests for an account deletion, a ticket for the main operator is created with the request for an account deletion.

Bug fixes:

  • When a tariff with a recurring access fee was applied, iOS incorrectly displayed the tariff description when the user checked the prices for such a location. This price description is now displayed correctly. ON-2609

  • Location details now include information about the station owner. In previous version this information was missing, from now on this is added when checking the location details. ON-2678

  • Validation of the input field on the registration form when using REGEX was not working as it should. This was now addressed and it displays to the user if the input is not valid according to the REGEX demand. ON-2725

  • When adding a credit card to the account when using Braintree as a Payment Service Provider, the window did not display the same language as the device had. We have added additional languages to align with the language used on a device. ON-2738


iOS 4.5.0 (xxx) - MAR Release

April 4, 2024

What's new:

  • Auto-fill on login form: Login form now takes the suggested credentials from the Keychain and allows it to populate the login data automatically. ON-2377

  • Auto-fill on registration forms: Registration form is now automatically populated on the following input fields: name (user.FirstName), surname (user.LastName), email (user.Email), address (User.address.StreetName), city name (user.address.CityName), phone number (user.GSMnumber)

  • With a new 3rd party marketing consent we needed to adjust its pop-up to be optional for user instead of being mandatory. This was fixed now and it works as it was designed. ON-2647

Bug fixes:

  • Updated color palette on help desk modal window to gain more contrast in a form. ON-2632

  • Made a fix for non-working 3DS when adding card via NETS payment provider. ON-2538

  • In delete account translations iOS app did not populate the app name instead of ”%s”. This was now addressed and all of the translations that require the parameter should now contain it. ON-1227

  • Pay Now via the “failed payment” pop-up did not work ok with the Braintree PSP, the invoice was not settled. This was not fixed and the invoice is settled as it should be for all payment providers. ON-2448, ON-2618

  • If you used Pay Now functionality on invoices card with BePaid payment provider, the Pay Now did not work as it should. This was now addressed and it works as it was intended. ON-2620

  • We had an issue with roaming sessions where it appeared that the session was ongoing but in reality, it was already seen as stopped in the Operator portal. Log out and log in from the application did not help, as the app still saw the session as ongoing and it was stopped automatically after a certain time had passed. The session is now forcefully stopped if such a scenario reappears. ON-2659


iOS Etrel App 4.4.0 (xxx) - FEB Release

February 22, 2024

What's new:

  • Added support for “Date of Birth” type input field on registration forms. ON-2477

    Full description and documentation: https://etrelchargingsolutions.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/EO/pages/3889102849

  • We have changed all orange alerts to red alerts to make it the same throughout the application. The desired goal was to have only one color for alerts. ON-2558

  • We've revamped the way you view push notifications from Ocean’s marketing module (technical and marketing notifications). Now, simply tap on a notification, and the app will open, displaying the entire notification for your convenience. ON-2336

Bug fixes:

  • BePaid PSP - When a top-up user uploaded funds to their account, the balance did not change immediately. This is now fixed and the number is immediately refreshed. ON-2508

  • BePaid PSP - When a top-up user tried to top up their account and cancels this, the credit card used was added to their wallet. This was now addressed and if the top-up is canceled, there will be no credit card added to their wallet. ON-2524

  • BePaid PSP - ad-hoc users saw a spinner indefinitely when adding a card was canceled. This spinner now shows correctly and is also closed in the proper way. ON-2537

  • Newest “Show Pricing” button was displayed in the incorrect color when using dark theme. This was now addressed. ON-2571


iOS Etrel App 4.3.0 (xxx) - DEC/JAN Release

January 15, 2023

What’s new:

  • Added Pricing list link to Charging screen and on Preauthorization message to improve UX for users. ON-2406

 

Bug fixes:

  • When you tap on the directions icon it only offered Apple Maps. Now you are able to select multiple applications that you have installed on your devices. ON-2428

  • When a user with a contract where “skip preauthorization” is set, added a credit card to their account at the start of the session, reauthorization was made even though it should be skipped. This bug occurred only on version 4.2.0. (NETS, CardCom and eComCharge). ON-2459

  • If leaving the “maximum allowed funds” in instance settings for a prepayer account blank iOS app did not allow users to deposit funds. ON-2359

  • When uploading funds to a prepayer account and exits screen, it happened that the balance page was not yet updated due to delays in communication. This is now addressed with a loader that waits for funds to update. ON-2413

  • If the top-up user added funds in the process of starting the session, the session did not start. This flow is now fixed and after topping up their account prepayer can successfully start a session from this path. ON-2415

  • Braintree PSP with enabled 3DS did not respond correctly when confirming or denying the transaction. Now the app waits for a response from Braintree and proceeds depending on the result. ON-2431 FIX FOR 4.2.0

  • When adding a credit card for the 1st time as a top-up user, you needed to tap it once again to trigger transaction. Now the 1st card that is added is auto used for 1st deposit. (NETS) ON-2438

  • When Adhoc and Adhoc MIT users started a charging session via Scan QR code and added a credit card there for the first time, users were unable to start a session. This is now solved so that users can successfully add a credit card and start a charging session via QR code scan. ON-2416

  • When starting a session via a QR code on the same location using an existing preauthorization, the session did not start. This is now fixed. ON-2465

Partners with app versions 4.2.0 in stores using Braintree have to update their iOS app to 4.3.0 due to a payment bug on 4.2.0 version.

  • Marketing consent pop-up is now optional for all users, new ones and also existing ones. This means that user has an option to choose between Agree or Disagree, where non of this option will block either registration flow (new users) or app usage by logging users out (existing users).

September 14, 2022
