User credits are used to allow mobile devices to run guiDesigner projects within both CF LaunchPad and iViewer 5 apps.
The credit count is shown at the top right of the LaunchPad website after logging in.
Every unique mobile device (phone or tablet) running CF LaunchPad app that is allocated to a project will consume 1 single credit from your account.
A mobile device can be allocated to additional projects without consuming any additional user credits.
If a device is fully licensed for iViewer 5, it can also be allocated to any LaunchPad project without consuming any additional credits.
Automatic allocation of devices to projects requires your account has a positive user credit balance.
Currently, CF LaunchPad app will always use a full credit when allocating a device to a project.
If your project consists of a single page, you will need to use the iViewer 5 app to take advantage of Single Page licensing (as described below). We plan to add support for single page licensing to CF LaunchPad app in future.
The same user credits can be used to license devices for the iViewer 5 app.
There are 3 licensing modes for iViewer 5:
iViewer 5 licenses can also be applied to unlicensed devices as a once-off purchase (rather than purchasing a user credit) via the 'iViewer Licenses' page of the LaunchPad website.
If you have an old account with us that contains iViewer credits, these can be migrated across for LaunchPad and iViewer 5.
See our migration guide for more details.
To purchase credits for your account, simply click the user credits count at the top of the LaunchPad website, which will take you to your credit balance page.
