MIT App Inventor for iOS version 2.64.1

Hello everyone,

We are rolling out the MIT App Inventor Companion for iOS version 2.64.1 via the Apple App Store. This release is mostly bug fixes but with a few key features:

  • Implemented WebRTC support for improved connectivity
  • Implemented the Translator component
  • Added Player support for HTTPS media streams
  • Security improvements related to upcoming changes in browsers
  • Fixed some hard coded constants
  • Fixed an issue where the navigation bar would not reflect the project's PrimaryColor property
  • Added a warning dialog if not on an active Wifi connection
  • Fixed some internal rendezvous issues
  • Fixed an issue where screens might be garbage collected early, resulting in crashes
  • Fixed some issues related to Canvas and ImageSprite layouts

Note: the iOS buildservers have not yet been updated for this release. The buildserver update will be deployed next week.

But we can can't use external extensions in iOS companion, when this will get updated

In the companion? Likely never without Apple's approval. App Store Guideline 2.5.2 states that apps cannot load code that has not been reviewed by App Store Review. Extensions would fall under this umbrella and therefore are not allowed.
