In my opinion, in a smartphone context, using the browser is not the best approach, considering the integration that already exists in the Thinger.io app of being able to enroll devices.
In my view, it would only need, as a good solution:
- Generate the QR CODE from the dashboard link (the QR code could be generated inside the platform or externally, through a QR CODE generator, since the interest is to easily obtain the URL).
- Register the dashboard URL in the “Scanned” tab of the Thinger.io app
- Open the Dashboard in the app using WebView (another hypothesis, although not ideal, would be to open the browser);
In other words, the simple option to store the dashboard URL in the Thinger.io app (using the QR CODE) would already provide a good user experience.
Otherwise, the user has to store the panel URL somewhere (whastapp, keep, evernote…) to access via smartphone.
As I am interested in using Thinger.io Clould for commercial purposes, I will have to find a solution to address this “deficiency” to ensure a better experience for consumers.
As I’m not a programmer, I’ll have to look for a solution, which could already be integrated into the Thinger.io app.
I just checked that this demand has been suggested since 2016.
