Checklist before the app goes live

We will submit your app as the last step to publishing the app. Before that, please help us go over the checklist below:
 
(1) Make sure you set up your own Apple and Google developer account. STQRY should be assigned as an admin and allowed to "Access to Certificates, Identifiers & Profiles" - This is so we can create and manage the certificates, keys, identifiers, devices, and provisioning profiles that you use to access app services and distribute your app. Check out our help article here.
 
(2) Are you going to sell your tour/app in the app store? If so, make sure you set up your Google payments & iTunes/Apple payment accounts. Check out our help article here.
 
(3) If you sell your tour/app, make sure you apply for the small business program with Apple and Google. This program will help you only pay 15% in the commission the app stores.
 
(4) Fill out the app information. If you choose Projects >> your app>> Submit, then you will be able to fill out the app information in the market details. Some notes for this field are below
 
Title: Apple and Google have a 30-character limit for app names.
 
Subtitle: A subtitle can be up to 30 characters long and appears below your app’s name throughout the App Store.
 
Description: This is the description that will appear in the App Store and should describe the application and is a key piece of marketing text. For best results, we recommend limiting your characters to 700.
 
Short description: Short Description is an 80-characters field that is shown to the users in the listing and can then be expanded to see the full description 
 
Keywords: Keywords are used to provide search terms for users of the App Store. Choose keywords that are relevant to your application and are words that users may use to search, limit to 100 characters.
 
Promotional text: Your app’s promotional text appears at the top of the description and is up to 170 characters long. You can update the promotional text at any time without having to submit a new version of your app. Consider using this to share the latest news about your apps, such as limited-time sales or upcoming features.
 
Privacy policy link: Below is a compliance checklist for privacy policies. Your privacy policy must:
  • Reference location data and your app’s use and handling of location data
  • Clearly label that the page is a privacy policy, for example, listed as "privacy policy" in the title or has “privacy” in the URL and body of the page
  • Be readable in a standard browser without any plug-ins or special handlers (for example, no PDFs, no uncommon MIME types)
  • Be available on an active, visible URL
  • Be non-editable
  • Refer to your app by name
  • Be linked on your app's Store listing page and/or within your app
  • Have a URL that links to a single governing privacy policy in your website and/or Play Store listing rather than one that points to multiple privacy policies

*If you do not have a privacy policy we can use STQRY's.

 

(5). Please provide us with an app icon and loading image via email. The loading image will show up after you open your app, 1-2 seconds before the app is really downloaded and ready to use. Here are the dimensions for the app icon and three loading screens:
  • App icon: 1024px by 1024px
  • Phone portrait: 640px by 1136px
  • Tablet portrait: 1536px by 2048px
  • Tablet landscape: 2048px by 1536px
(6) If you want to track your tour downloads by Google Analytics, please follow the instruction here
 
(7) You can update the app content at any time. Please note there are a few things that will require a new version of the app to be built by us if you need to change these. These include:
  • App icon
  • App loading images
  • App description
  • Name of app
  • Keywords
  • Price of app (if any)
Let us know if you need to update any of the items above and we will create a new version of the app for you. The new submission will take around 48 hours to process and the old version is still live in the meantime. 
*Please note that the app submission will take up to 2 weeks so please keep us posted if you have a launch date in mind.
