Navigation bar, Sync refresh toolbar buttons, and other UI that are completely below the 480pt line cannot be tapped on iPhone 5.
Cannot start input on a vertically aligned Signature control when it is in a scrollable area.
The following issues remain outstanding as of this release:
For a List view that uses local data, sorting by a column that uses a calculated value does not work.
Workaround: Instead of using calculated columns, use individual fields that are mapped to data entities.
The Data Connector does not support table names with Unicode characters in the table names.
Workaround: Remove any high ASCII characters from table names before generating Stage tables and running the Data Connector.
Data sync does not evaluate the Formula field of an entity and downloads a blank value.
In Version 7.3, not setting the Format property of a Date Field control caused the control to display an unformatted value by default. In 7.4, the Date Field uses the
Workaround: If no format is required, change the Date Field control to a Text Box control.
The row count does not appear when viewing a screen used by the Association control.
On an Android 2.x device, the Global Search button does not work when the app's Graphical Navigation property is set to
Only one header appears when Group by field is not in the Header pane.
Workaround: Move the Group by field into the Header pane, or add a second field with the same data in the header and sort by that instead.
The navigation bar is drawn on top of graphs.
Workaround: Hide the navigation bar on screens that display graphs.
Memory management issues occur when typing in Japanese on devices running OS 7.1.
The device's activity indicator does not dismiss properly after downloading a graph from the server.
Non-touch devices running OS 7.0 do not move focus to non-editable fields, which can prevent scrolling to the bottom of a screen.
Workaround: To enable scrolling, add an invisible editable control to the end of the screen. For screens that have click action, add a menu item for the click action.
If you enable Predictive Caching on a system using an encrypted configuration database, you can create a race condition leading to failure of one of the processes.
Workaround: If your app uses Predictive Caching, we recommend turning off database encryption.
Click-to-email address does not prefill when the email address contains UTF-8 characters.
Workaround: This is currently a limitation of the iOS platform.
Setting the title style by using a script causes the Global Search button to disappear.
Workaround: Set the title style in the app configuration instead of using a script.
The Lookup control keeps filtered result set after dismissing and reopening an item.
Workaround: User can run another search to return the different result set.
The List screen view selector is not dismissed when focus is moved to the Quick Find bar.
Using the the
Workaround: Select a different format or use custom format.
If you use an Image Field control to capture an image from an iPad's camera, and then uploaded the image from an Add or Edit screen, the upload can fail.
Workaround: Edit the Web.config file for your Verivo AppServer to set the
<httpRuntime maxRequestLength="10240" executionTimeout="600"/>
App crash on login when client has pending uploads and device was previously in airplane mode. The app completes the upload and immediately crashes.

Upgrade procedure from Version 7.4
The section Upgrading the Platform describes the steps required to upgrade a previous installation of Verivo’s enterprise mobility platform Version 7.4 to Version 7.4.7. The following sections provide an overview of the steps that you might have to follow to perform the upgrade.
For information on upgrading from release 7.3.x to 7.4, see the 7.4 Release Notes.
As of June 26, 2012, Google's Cloud to Device Messaging (C2DM) framework has been deprecated by Google in favor of the Google Cloud Messaging (GCM) standard. With the release of Version 7.4.7, Verivo now supports GCM in replacement of C2DM.
To upgrade an app that uses the Verivo push service to Version 7.4.7, you must perform the following steps:
- Upgrade your installation of Verivo's enterprise mobility platform to Version 7.4.7. For more information, see Upgrading the Platform.
When you upgrade the Verivo configuration database, the C2DM configuration fields Google Account and Google Account Password in the Push Settings screen of AppStudio are replaced by the GCM Project ID and GCM API Key fields. These new fields are empty and you must set them before you can use GCM.
- Set up a GCM push provider. For more information, see Configuring the Push Provider.
- In AppStudio, configure your app to use GCM. For more information, see Push Service Configuration.
You cannot create a new C2DM account but you can configure a push provider to use an existing C2DM account. However, only Version 7.4 or earlier of Verivo's enterprise mobility platform supports C2DM.
If you want to still use C2DM, you can clone your existing configuration database and upgrade the clone to Version 7.4.7 You can then continue to use the original configuration database with Version 7.4 or earlier to make use of C2DM.
