iOS Mapbox Tooltips in mobile

How do map tooltips work in the Mapbox viz on mobile? I can see the tooltips in the web-based PowerBI service but I am not sure what the equivalent is to hover in the mobile app. Is it even possible to see the tooltips within the mobile app?


Thank you for any help you can provide.

Hey @Anonymous ,


Tooltip is shown in Power BI Mobile app when you long-press on a data point in the visual.

It should work the same for all visuals, including custom viz. Is that not the experience you are having with Mapbox viz?


Thanks, Maya

Having the same issue in the ipad and long pressing doesnt work as suggested in this thread. It is not just tooltips. It doesn't select points or areas as web does.

Hi @Anonymous,

It seems like a compatible issue between custom visual and mobile app, I'd like to suggest you contact the visual author or mobile app team to report this.

Partially true that is a power bi mobile app incompatibility as it partially work when accessing visual on safari browser on the ipad. chroropleth shape selection works, however tooltips of point selection doesn't.
