I few years ago I released an interactive ABC iBook that featured a number of HTML5 widgets built with Hype. I am in the process of updating this ebook and the widgets are on the list for a few changes.
I located all of my old files and set out to update the widgets. Unfortunately, after making a few changes, I noticed that the newly exported widgets were no longer working correctly once I try to add them back to iBooks Author! I’ve tried tons of things to try to get them to work.
Puzzling thing is, it works fine when I preview the widget on a browser or on iPhone directly from Hype. However, when I try to add one of these widgets to (even a blank) iBooks Author file, when I preview the file on on an iPad or on a browser, the widget seems to open up fine, but it is totally non-responsive to taps or clicks and none of my animations are triggered. I’d love to update this book, but I’m stuck unless I can get these widgets working again!
Can anyone find any reason why this widget works in a browser or hype iPhone preview, but not in iBooks Author? Any ideas on how to fix? Any input would be greatly appreciated! I tried to upload a zipped example version but it was slightly too large and got rejected. So, here is a google drive link to download the example instead: widgetExample.zip Thanks so much!
