    Kind of risky to activate this for guests. Any pop-up style elements usually increase bounce rate dramatically. Is it possible to have usergroup permissions with this one?

    Thanks for the add-on.

    Second that. Should be only visible for registered users.

    I'm so glad you've released this. Was looking at the cubiq website for this last week and it's been on my to do list.

    Will install once this respects usergroup permission :)

    I will take a look at adding the usergroup permissions, I just need to learn how. :)

    Nevermind, I've installed it on a site that only gets visited by members anyway. Works great! :)

    There's a typo in your description as well, dead link to cert forums.

    If you customise the text, how you you insert the iOS icon, which is present in the default message?

    I figured out the icon. You need to use %icon

    Actually, it looks like it uses conditionals to change the default text depending on the device type, is that right?

    If so I don't think the %icon in the custom message will look good on Android device. I don't have one to test though.

    Probably best to not use the icon if it's a custom message, unless you're able to add another field so you can have a custom iOS message and a custom Android message?

    One thing to note is that modal isn't a great idea on phone sized devices in safari.

    Now that the bottom menu hides when scrolling down, if this appears and modal locks the screen, you can't start to scroll up to get the 'add to home screen' button to appear.

    A novice user who isn't familiar with what buttons are hidden might not know that they need to scroll up to view it, therefore the alert may cause them frustration if they don't know what to do and scrolling is locked.

    If it was possible to activate modal only for tablets where the button is always visible, that could be an idea. Otherwise, probably best to leave it disabled.

    It appear so yes but I don't have a Android device to test.

    EDIT: I just tested in debug mode using a browser and yes the icon changes and so does the default message text.

    How did you record that gif of what looks like a mobile device? Did you use an emulator?

    I updated the setting 'Start Delay' to be able to hold a value of 0 which may minimise this a little.

    Does this work only for the Primary Usergroup? I have it set for a Secondary Usergroup and it doesn't appear to be working.

    It uses a simple "isMemberOf" condition so yes will check both primary and secondary usergroups.

    What are you trying to do and what do you have set?
