It’s sad for us too to come to this decision. We hope you are doing better.

We now give you a FreePremiumPlugins Coupon which is a 100% price discount for Wilcity Premium Plugins as our sincere apology to you. 

Again we apologize for our hard decision to temporarily stop Wilcity 2.0 And thank you guys for always being beside us. Hope to see you again with our other products in the future. 

Thank you

What is a deep link?

What is a deep link?

Deep link is a type of link for mobile platforms that directs users to a particular content inside an app.

When a customer clicks on a Deep Link, there are 2 circumstances when users click on a deep link:

#1 People using laptops and computers will be redirected to another web page (as usual).

#2 People using smartphones and tablets won’t see a website. Instead:

#2.1 If they have installed the app: The deep link will open a relevant content inside the app.

#2.2 If the app hasn’t been installed yet: A pop-up window will appear and invite users to install the app. If they choose Yes, it will direct them to the app page in the App Store or CH Play.

So what are Benefits of Deep Links?

  1. Deep links are convenient and follow the mobile trend. It helps users immediately go inside the app from a mobile website or social media. Which satisfies the demand of modern life
  2. Deep links can increase sales. The convenience of deep links improves the possibility that people will buy products instead of sleeping on it then choose other products or buy it from other providers.
  3. Deep links help to earn loyal customers. Some people have installed the app but don’t use it so often. Deep links encourage them to use the app more frequently.
  4. Google also indexes mobile app deep links. That means people can find your app through search and become your new users!

Wilcity App does support Deep links!

Please read https://wilcityservice.com/wiloke-plugins/wilcity-app-deep-link/

NOTE: If you have joined our Silver or Gold Plan, please check your mailbox and reply to our email asking whether you want to include the Deep Link feature for your app.

How to resolve Notification issue on iOS App?

We recently got lots of feedback about Wilcity App Notification on iOS device.

After 1 week worked on this feature, We finally find the reason.

How does Notification works?

When Wilcity Web emit a notification message, Wilcity App will push a notification to EXPO server (1) . Then, Expo will push this notification to your device (2)

If (1) is successfully, We will get oke status. But as Expo explained it their documentation:

Note: a status of ok along with a receipt ID means that the message was received by Expo’s servers, not that it was received by the user (for that you will need to check the push receipt).

Why do you get this issue?

We checked on some customers App and We released that all Apps are facing (2). And the specific reason is The Apple Push Notification service key for your account could not be loaded, likely due to a malformed p8 file. Expo needs a valid PEM key in order to deliver notifications to APNs 

But why did it work before? => https://developer.apple.com/news/?id=11042019a

How can I resolve this issue?

We wrote an article about this, please read and follow https://documentation.wilcity.com/knowledgebase/how-can-test-notification-debug/ to resolve this issue
