You don't need to use anything other than the 'Request fullscreen' action in the Browser object in Chrome for Android. One limitation is it only works in a user-input event, so you need to use it in an 'On touch' trigger or similar.
Thats great but could you post that workaround for iOS6 you removed?
Quite a bit of people are requesting it so far.
I would also like to say its very likely they will want to support iOS6 even when iOS8 or 9 will be released. They have milions of users every month, they cant just isolate lets say 5% of their customers because we are talking about thousands of dollars of their revenue right here. Its obvious they cant except people to add game to homescreen or install newest iOS version since most of them are illiterate with any kind of software. Thats why we have to care about them.
Im sorry but we are customers here right now, we cant demand anything from you. We can ask, and thats what we are trying to do. Most of people from what Ive talked with tried to reason or email you/scirra about our stance on iOS6 and you defend so hard your decision it would take much less time to just give us a proper solution instead of telling to go and fix it ourselves. Some of us dont even know any js - thats why we use construct2 and really its one great tool, im still amazed how awesome it is. I want to praise it on every possible forum, conference or meeting im at. Im proud to use construct2 but its very hard to when its impossible to reason with creator of tools :(
