    As i can see, your popup dialogs can be used for any language but your example of the rating dialog shows me no possibility to insert my own text. Is it possible to display this dialog in any localized version?

    Sorry for late replay.
    Of course you can insert any language in rate popup as well. There is one more constructor for rate pop up
    Code (csharp):
    1. public static IOSRateUsPopUp Create(string title, string message)

    Thanks for purchase, derkoi.

    By the way new update is coming, it was submited on asset store more than week ago, so it should be released soon.
    It will contains improved (speed) events and Game Center Achivmets full support.

    And I whant to ask you guys.
    Do you whant to have an opportunity subscire on IOS events like:
    "OnMemoryWarningReceived"
    "ApplicationDidEnterBackground"
    "ApplicationDidBeacomeActive"

    But if I implement this it may require additional setup steps. So what do you think?

    Hi lacost.

    Congratulations. One of very few products I see and buy immediately :)

    Regarding your question, yes, I think being notified of when the app enters the background or becomes active again would be most welcome indeed! The memory warning... meh, not so much...

    lacost,

    Thank you for making this amazing plugin. I have gotten all of the features up and working, except for one. I am unable to properly submit scores to GameCenter Leaderboards. I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong.

    In my opening scene, I run the IOS Native script.

    I have the GameCenterManager script run when my airplane explodes (this is the point in the game where the score should be submitted) - and GameCenter opens the proper leaderboard, but it does not submit the score.

    I tried it also with the GameCenterExample script - but, I can only get it to send the preset init hiScore of 100.

    It would be greatly appreciated if you could point me in the right direction, I just cannot figure out what I am doing wrong.

    Thanks again for such a great tool!

    Hello, HollowRockAdam
    Thanks for kind words and purchase.

    For submitting score you should use this function
    Code (csharp):
    1. GameCenterManager.reportScore(hiScore, leaderBoardId);
    make shure that leaderBoardId is correct and it the same with leader board id you trying to show.
    And of cuorse check please that AppID and App bundle Id is correct and much with your registered itunes app.

    If you steel need help please PM me or send E-mail at lacost.st@gmail.com
    I can do a closer look on your code to figure out what goes wrong.

    Hello :)

    Thanks for your support and feedbacks.
    One more feature was implemented and next version of IOS Native is on review now

    Now you can listen for the system events like

    applicationDidBecomeActive
    applicationDidReceiveMemoryWarning


    Here is little example how to do this.

    Code (csharp):
    1.    
    2.     //--------------------------------------
    3.     // INITIALIZE
    4.     //--------------------------------------
    5.  
    6.     void Start() {
    7.         IOSNative.instance.addEventListener (IOSNative.APPLICATION_DID_BECOME_ACTIVE,                OnApplicationDidBecomeActive);
    8.         IOSNative.instance.addEventListener (IOSNative.APPLICATION_DID_RECEIVE_MEMORY_WARNING,       OnApplicationDidReceiveMemoryWarning);
    9.     }
    10.  
    11.     //--------------------------------------
    12.     // EVENTS
    13.     //--------------------------------------
    14.    
    15.  
    16.     private void OnApplicationDidBecomeActive() {
    17.         // Called when application become active again. Optionally refresh the user interface, check for some data than probably was chenged wile application was paused
    18.  
    19.         Debug.Log ("Catched  OnApplicationDidBecomeActive event");
    20.     }
    21.  
    22.     private void OnApplicationDidReceiveMemoryWarning() {
    23.         //Called when application receives a memory warning from the system.
    24.  
    25.         Debug.Log ("Catched  OnApplicationDidReceiveMemoryWarning event");
    26.     }
    27.

    I am open for the feature request's.
    Last feature requested was applicationDidBecomeActive event. And now it's ready.

    For now I do not have feature request for this plugging (just little things with documentation)
    So I open for propositions. You can post them here, send PM or E-mail at lacost.st@gmail.com

    Thanks for your interest, FootprintGames.

    Just bought this. Very easy to use, love it! My app runs in landscape view, is there any way to make the 'rate this' pop-up appear vertically in landscape?

    Thank you!

    Hello echoic, Thanks for purchasing.

    I afraid thai I didn't get your point. Can you explain more what behavior you trying to achieve?
    The popup-us orientation depends on device orientation mode.

    The pop-ups are only being displayed with portrait orientation even though I have built my application to run in landscape mode.

    It seem like something going wrong. Event example scene included in the project is designed for landscape mode, and popup's are displaying in landscape mode there. That why you question was a little bit confusing to me.

    Popups should really on device orientation mode. I'll send you PM.

    Version 1.3 is now available on Asset Sote

    Application event's listen example
    Code (csharp):
    1.  
    2.     void Start() {
    3.         IOSNative.instance.addEventListener (IOSNative.APPLICATION_DID_BECOME_ACTIVE,                OnApplicationDidBecomeActive);
    4.         IOSNative.instance.addEventListener (IOSNative.APPLICATION_DID_RECEIVE_MEMORY_WARNING,       OnApplicationDidReceiveMemoryWarning);
    5.     }
    6.  
    After you subscribed on events you can handle it handler functions

    Code (csharp):
    1.  
    2.     private void OnApplicationDidBecomeActive() {
    3.         // Called when application become active again. Optionally refresh the user interface, check for some data than probably was chenged wile application was paused
    4.  
    5.         Debug.Log ("Catched  OnApplicationDidBecomeActive event");
    6.     }
    7.  
    8.     private void OnApplicationDidReceiveMemoryWarning() {
    9.         //Called application receives a memory warning from the system.
    10.  
    11.         Debug.Log ("Catched  OnApplicationDidReceiveMemoryWarning event");
    12.     }
    13.

    I've bought this plugin few days ago.

    I have 2 game projects in Unity (just upgraded to 4.2),

    Whenever I import this plugin to one of the project unity crashes. I noted this happens when it start compile script and adds dll in extensions folder.

    Then it keeps crashing unless I remove dll manually.

    Can yo advise how can I get rid of crashing ?

    Hi Lacost,

    This plugin looks great and the price is unbeatable. However, it is missing an important feature: Restore In-App purchase? I don't see this feature listed in your documentation. From what I've read, Apple will reject apps that doesn't have a restore button that uses non-consumable in-App purchase.

    Hello.
    Everything is simple. You can not test payment on simulator, you need device for testing.
    And make sure that you have set up your app and iTunes setting correctly. And do not forget to create iTunes test account to be able to test payment.
    If you still have problems running the plugin, please email me at lacost.st@gmail.com. I am responding much quicker via email. Feel free to contact me.
    Cheers.

    Dear Lacost,

    I bought it and imported it into my project.

    When I try to use rate my app, it opens a link in app store and giving me the following error:

    Your request produced an error.

    [newNullResponse]

    I have added my app id already, any suggestions?

    Hi Lacost,

    I was just wondering if you can verify a transaction with iAP.
    Does it provide a receipt when a product is bought?

    Hello kalid360 , sorry for slow replay.
    Here is few scenarios

    1) You initializing purchase flow by calling buyProduct(string productId) function of InAppPurchaseManager
    2) Customer successfully bought product
    3) Your application gets PRODUCT_BOUGHT event

    That is most common scenario, and you got your PRODUCT_BOUGHT event only after customer paid for your product

    Here is few more scenarios with can also happened.

    1) You initializing purchase flow by calling buyProduct(string productId) function of InAppPurchaseManager
    2) Application crashed (unknown reason)
    3) Customer successfully bought product when your app wasn't running any more
    4) Your app does not get PRODUCT_BOUGHT event
    5) Customer starts your app again
    6) Your app receives PRODUCT_BOUGHT event after InAppPurchaseManager initialized


    Only for non-consumable products
    1) Customer changed device
    2) Customer initialize restore purchase flow
    3) Your app receives PRODUCT_BOUGHT event for all purchases hi owned

    Note: PRODUCT_BOUGHT event contains productId information
    Note: you can also get TRANSACTION_FAILED if customer canceled transaction or hi didn't finish purchase flow (any reason)

    Hi Lacost,

    That's a alright, I've actually been holding off. It's the only thing holding me back.
    I understand that you get the PRODUCT_BOUGHT event after the user purchased the item.
    What if the transaction was fraudulent? I want to be able to verity the receipts server-side.

    Does the PRODUCT_BOUGHT event allow me to do that?

    Okay, I got your point now.
    Here is detailed explanation, not only for you but for others who interested in this question too.

    Part from IOS Developer Guide:

    How can I validate transactions that have already completed?

    Consumables If you have saved the receipts, either on the device or on your server, revalidate the receipts after implementing your mitigation strategy. If you have not saved the receipts, you cannot validate these past transactions; you should not take any action. (currently not implemented )

    Non-consumables Set aside the current receipts, perform a restore operation, and validate the new receipts. Avoid redownloading content that is already on the device during this process. (currently implemented )

    If you talking about Consumables receipts validation, there is no such function inside package currently. But this is what this thread for. I will treat your massage as feature request, and that feature will appear in next package version.


    As you already noted, package is full open source. So if you wary about transaction secure you have few options.

    1) Modify Transaction controller to communicate with your own secure server. (I can not help you with this, but you able to do that because source is open)
    2) Wait about 1 week until package update, and get receipts validation function using Apple servers.
    3) And of-corse you can modify the code by your self to add this function. In case.

    Thanks a lot for feature request. Be sure that receipts validation will be part of new update.

    Hi Lacost,

    I was actually asking about validating transactions at time of purchase with the receipts, verifying that the transaction is non-fradulent.
    It's good that you brought this up though as I wasn't aware you could even do this.

    I could be crazy, is this the same thing as validating consumable transactions at time of purchase?

    Regardless, I can't thank you enough for the support, it's amazing that you've even considering it and promised it in a future update.
    I will look forward to that feature, I will still purchase your asset now anyways.

    Thanks for purchase.

    As I understand you can validate only completed transaction with receipt. I will dig in to this issue when start to implement this. It should be done on this week.
    If you what to get this version before official update, just PM me your e-mail.

    Cheers!

    Hi

    Thanks for the great asset, I just purchased :)

    Did you think about implementing iCloud?
    Any news about an android native asset?

    The main idea of asset is creating tool with is all what you need for porting game to IOS. So in first version I implemented all basics feature with everybody need in the game. Now I improving asset code and architecture, and excepting feature requests.
    Next step going to be iCloud.

    Thanks a lot.

    It will probably next api for this asset. But I can't say time rage when it going to be implemented.

    Yea.
    It already submitted. Asset contains native popups, billing, full goole play (achievements, leaderboards, cloud)
    If you would like to get more info, here is documentation.
    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1px0BVXcZqgrW99OQV4bM7q1rD5NYaCYTxXnn4eS4ytY/edit

    And also asset for implementing Goole Play Services to IOS (achievements, leaderboards, cloud) waiting for review in asset store. So you can consider using Google Cloud on Android and IOS instead of iCloud on IOS only.
    here is asset documentation

    Hello, thanks for your interest.

    Well it little more expensive because two main reasons.
    1) in addition to all ios native plugin features (IAPs, Play Service, Pop-ups) it also has google cloud integration.
    2) Android plugin support takes much more time then ios plugin.

    it make sense, more features means more money. i missed cloud integration now i see differences.

    is it possible to use ios game center integration to android?

    is there any examples that ios game use google play service. because apple does not like other systems on app review :)
