Cliff Notes: There have been some fancy updates to the web, iOS, and Android apps for StructionSite. A major overhaul to the offline deliverable for the owner, significant enhancements to VideoWalk processing, Apple iOS 13 updates for connectivity and locations, and a few new Android enhancements.


WEB:

Enhancements:

  • Offline Deliverable: Major overhaul to the offline deliverable is now available! 360 photos are now provided in two different formats the .jpg files for the User’s access and the .html files that can be viewed offline and without a viewer.

iOS:

Enhancements:

  • iOS 13 compatibility!: With the roll-out of iOS 13, we’ve had some issues arise with location permissions and camera connectivity. With the new version of the iOS, the permissions have been updated to have the following options: Never, Ask Next Time, While Using the App, and Always. When connecting to a camera, StructionSite v. 1.34.0 now asks users to confirm you have the correct location settings. The recommended settings from StructionSite are either Ask Next Time or While Using the App.
    • To update location permissions for StructionSite: Settings > StructionSite > Location > “Ask Next Time” or “While Using the App”
    • As Apple has been pushing additional updates to iOS 13, we are adding enhancements for various location permissions as necessary. 
  • iOS 13 Dark Mode Disabled: We keep it light at StructionSite, so iOS 13 dark mode has been disabled so that your projects are always, in-sight!
  • Rotate device screen – Update to the mobile screen rotation: When you adjust the direction of your mobile device, the buttons to capture remain at the bottom of the application to make for more natural photo snapping. 
  • Low battery prompt: Been capturing for an extended period? StructionSite show’s a prompt to you before a VideoWalk if there is not enough battery capacity in your Insta360 ONE X or Garmin VIRB to capture.
  • Pop-Up if User has incorrect Insta360 One X Firmware: StructionSite alert’s the User if the current firmware of their Insta360 ONE X needs to be updated.

Android

Enhancements:

  • Added pin clustering
  • Updated look & feel of floor plan UI
  • Fixed placeholder image not showing when project thumbnail fails to load
