Designer 2.0


Animations play a crucial role in enhancing user interactivity and engagement within applications. In our latest update, we are excited to introduce three distinct types of animations: Slide, Zoom, and Fade.

These animations are specifically implemented at the Tasks level on Navigate, Previous, and Home Page. This marks the initial phase of our animation rollout, bringing a new level of dynamism and visual appeal to user interactions within your applications.

Popup Page Enhancement

This specific enhancement is geared towards resolving bugs associated with the Popup page. Additionally, we have made improvements to the properties to ensure that changes made to the Popup page are reflected in real-time on the Canvas.

This enhancement, coupled with the introduction of animations, empowers users to seamlessly create a Navigation Bar (Nav Bar) within their applications.

Note : Nav Bar creation does not currently include support for slide gestures.

Carousel Component

The Carousel Component introduces a versatile and responsive solution for seamlessly integrating carousels into user applications. Not only does it boast responsiveness, but its flexible content structure accommodates various elements such as image formats, texts, buttons, and more.

Beyond its traditional carousel functionality, this component offers the added capability of serving as a slider element. This dual functionality enhances its adaptability, making it a valuable asset for addressing a diverse range of use cases within your application. Whether you need a dynamic image showcase or a feature-rich slider, the Carousel Component is designed to meet your requirements with ease and flexibility.

Open Third Party Application Tasks

In response to a user need for opening third-party apps directly from vDesigner 2.0, we’re excited to introduce the Open Third-App Task. This task serves as a seamless solution for triggering any third-party app installed on the device, supporting both iOS and Android platforms.Users now have the flexibility to specify deep links for the third-party applications they wish to open.

Timer Element

Vahana introduces the Timer Element, a dynamic feature designed to elevate time-sensitive interactions within the system. This element offers various functionalities, including countdowns, count-ups, and more, providing users with a versatile set of timer features to enhance their experience.

Download Task

We are introducing the “Download” Task feature, enabling users to effortlessly download various file formats such as PDF, Docs, and more. This new functionality enhances the user experience by providing a seamless way to retrieve files.

Debugger Enhancement

The latest update brings an enhancement to the download module: users now have the ability to enable a Floating Debugger in their build through a checkbox. This feature includes a drag functionality, providing a seamless experience similar to the current debugger.
