This Introduction Video provides an Overview of The Publish Section of The App Builder. We'll be discussing a few aspects of this section in more depth throughout the video including:
- App Description and Keywords (App Store SEO)
- App Icon
- Screen Shots
- Splash Screen
This section will provide some more information about the importance of doing a little research as well as entering information about your app into the App Description area. This section is very important when it comes to people finding your app. Using the best or best performing Keywords can make or break your app so its worth considering and taking some time here to get it right. In the next section we'll discuss a resource that is worth investigating or investing in to help optimize your app's performance in the app store (AppCodes.com)
This section demonstrates how to create and upload your App Icon prior to submission to the App Store. In this video I discuss the required Icon Size and Type (1024 x 1024 PNG). This may be one of the most important aspects of your app development. Having an eye-catching App Icon can make or break your potential downloads. So don't cut corners on this step.
In this section we discuss AppCodes.com and its relevance to the App Development process. Although this is a premium product, I highly recommend utilizing it to help get your app started on the right foot prior to publication. This tool and service is great for optimizing your listing in the app store by getting some inside information on competitor apps or apps in your category that are performing well.
This section provides more demonstration on how to get your Screen Shots for your App ready for submission. Apple and Android require Screen Shots of your app for the App Stores. This is a great marketing opportunity to show off your app for prospective downloaders. You have an the ability to upload 5 Screen Shots for each Device...so make them count!
Woohoo! This is the last step!
Submitting your app is essentially the last step in the process.
Once your app is complete and ready for submission, simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know your app is ready to for submission. We'll give it a look over and prepare the file for upload to Apple and Android.
We'll need your Developer Information or listed within your Developer Account as part of your development team so we can upload your files to Apple and Android.
