Release Notes 2017-3-29

 New features:

- AdMob integration for ad monetization (iOS and Android 5.0 and higher)

This designer build will offer you the option to include AdMob ads in your app. You can add banners (top or bottom) or interstitial (between lists of content) ads to your app. More information about using this feature can be found here


- User Groups

AppMachine's "Lock" block offers a "User Groups" feature that allows you to create groups of registered users that can be granted access to specific blocks. More information about adding users to User Groups can be found here. Adding this feature to a published app will require a store update. 


Designer updates / fixes:


- App site: The template has been fixed to support showing longer app names as site title.


- Added scroll bar to make implementing 9+ parameters in Web Service block possible.

- Fixes in typing behaviour in the layout editor. Errors that lead to some loss of code while typing in the source screen of the layout editor have been resolved.

    i think you mean {user:phoneNumber} instead of {user:phone}
    Or will this be changed in the designer later?
