Re: Pooled/Dynamic licensing: any PlayBook apps using it yet?

We had an inital dialog telling the user they need to get the key from App World.  Haven't had many issues with it.  I've come across the issue where an owner has switched devices.  They just send an email once they discover their key doesn't work on their new PlayBook, and I change their PIN server side.  I even set up a form online so they can do it themselves, but it's not common it needs to be done.

Re: Pooled/Dynamic licensing: any PlayBook apps using it yet?

I just realized (after installing your app) that you're talking about the phone version only. (It appears...)

Your PlayBook version does not use the license key pool mechanism, and no key is shown (at least to me) in the App World page for it once I've installed it.

What works on the phones, where users are generally more familiar with keys (as far as I know), doesn't necessarily apply to the PlayBook. PlayBook users generally have not seen apps with keys, and the dialog I showed near the start of this thread and the other issues I've raised are, I believe, going to pose real problems for many people.

Re: Pooled/Dynamic licensing: any PlayBook apps using it yet?

I think you installed the wrong app. :smileywink:  We have 4.

 

While Unlock App is for both the Smartphone and PlayBook, Bridge Navigator is for the PlayBook and uses the model I described earlier.
