I am have configured the About widget in my app to open at start-up while in desktop layout, however when I open the app on a mobile device it does not open automatically. I know there are specific configurations for mobile layout, such as the widgets docking at the bottom of the page, and I am also assuming the 'auto-open' is being overridden some place, I just can't seem to find where. I am new to Web app developing, so when I start getting into the nuts and bolts of the application files it starts to get confusing, so any help would be awesome. The app was built using Web Appbuilder developer edition, version 2.1.

Franklin,

   When I just tested by creating a fresh 2.1 WAB site and set the about widget to open at start and then open the site on my iPhone it worked fine. The About widget opened at startup.

Thanks for trying that. It work for me too when I created a new app. The app I am working on was created by my someone else, and has probably been updated numerous times. It helps to know that configuring the widget to open in web appbuilder SHOULD make it open in both desktop and smartphone layout. That should narrow my search a little!
