Events

deepLinkActivatedThis event is raised when an application running on Android, iOS, or the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) is activated using a deep link URL.
focusChangedDefines the delegate to use to register for events in which the focus gained or lost.
logMessageReceivedEvent that is fired if a log message is received.
logMessageReceivedThreadedEvent that is fired if a log message is received.
lowMemoryThis event occurs when an iOS or Android device notifies of low memory while the app is running in the foreground. You can release non-critical assets from memory (such as, textures or audio clips) in response to this in order to avoid the app being terminated. You can also load smaller versions of such assets. Furthermore, you should serialize any transient data to permanent storage to avoid data loss if the app is terminated.This event corresponds to the following callbacks on the different platforms: - iOS: [UIApplicationDelegate applicationDidReceiveMemoryWarning] - Android: onLowMemory() and onTrimMemory(level == TRIM_MEMORY_RUNNING_CRITICAL)Here is an example of handling the callback:
onBeforeRenderDelegate method used to register for "Just Before Render" input updates for VR devices.
quittingUnity raises this event when the player application is qutting.
wantsToQuitUnity raises this event when the player application wants to quit.

Delegates

AdvertisingIdentifierCallbackDelegate method for fetching advertising ID.
LogCallbackUse this delegate type with Application.logMessageReceived or Application.logMessageReceivedThreaded to monitor what gets logged.
LowMemoryCallbackThis is the delegate function when a mobile device notifies of low memory.
