Been a loooooong time.

Hi Folks

Wow it's been years since I visited good old buzztouch. The place looks as good as ever and I think I might even give my apps I made years ago a makeover. The old apps html doesn't play well with newer versions of android software.

I wanted to know if that's just due to old code in the html plug in or if it's still the same plug in it was about 5 years ago? If so it will simply be a case of updating the old html docs themselves. Surprised there are still those downloading these apps to be honest but it might be worth updating them.

Huge thanks in advance.

At one point Google updated the their webview. The change from the old to new happens in the background. I don't think you need to change your code. Just recompile and resubmit. Use at least Android 4.4 per this:

Edit: Use 4.4.3 as the minimum
