Applications on new MD panels

Dear All,

I have been asked to use the most of the new MD-702 Apps ( AccuWeather, Skype, etc ). I'm really unfamiliar with them and I'm afraid the available documents are not clear enough of how to make them playing.

For example, what parameters should I fill up ( on "parameters list" ) for the AccuWeather ?
What about the Quote Pro ( Displays stock symbols and stock quotes ) or Skype ?

When launching on of them now, a message "The application is not available. Check Update Manager settings" appears.

Any help and examples will be very appreciated.

    Well, "Web Services" is enabled - this allows connection to the Update Manager Server.

    On the "App Manager", there are neither of the above apps ( AccuWeather, Skype, QuotePro ) installed nor they are available for download.

    The manual says that we can install any app from USB as APX file. But I cannot find such one. Instead, the APK ones are Android app files but they are not discovered form panel when launching the "install apps from usb" page

    What are these APX files exactly ? Where can I find them ?

    Is this training video helpful?:

    No, it is not helpful... it is only the basic guide to use an app in the touch panel ( if it was pre-installed ).
    The problem is that some apps are not installed in the touch panel ( even the one that the training video demonstrates ) !!!

    Within the TP5 help menu CONTENTS there is a section covering Application Windows. Do you have an application window in your panel file?

    Of course I have an application window for each application...
    But there are not many applications ( weather, skype, quote pro, etc. ) installed on the panel as native applications.

    Also, there are not the missing apps APX files available from AMX !!

    I'm very surprised that no one has found out this.

    Currently, AMX presents these apps as available ones at any marketing material and documentation !!
