Whatdo I need for an App Store Submission?

In order to publish apps in the App Store and Play Store, you must apply for both Apple and Google Developer accounts. Since this process can take up to 4 weeks, you’ll want to do this first.

If your organization already has developer accounts, you can skip this step.

Apply for Developer Accounts Why is this necessary? To protect themselves and their customers, Apple and Google want to ensure you’re the real deal. Everyone that wants to publish on their stores must sign up first.
Where do I do this? Sign up for an iOS Developer account on the Apple Developer site. You will need an Apple ID to begin the process.
Sign up for a Google Developer account in the Play Console. You’ll need a Google account to begin the process.
What if I need more help?

Check out these instructions on acquiring an iOS Developer account and Google Play Developer account.

Note: Developer accounts are not free. Apple charges an annual $99 fee. Google charges a one-time $25 fee.

What is this necessary?

Your app is an extension of your organization. If you want to entice people into downloading it, you need to ensure it is both appealing and reflective of your brand.

Failure to add these design elements will result in Apple or Google rejecting your app:

  • App Icons
  • App Store Graphics
  • App Colors
  • Event Name
  • Short Name
  • Description
  • Start and End Dates
  • Event Time Zone
  • Location Information
Authroisation Letters

As we shall be submitting the app on your behalf we require written permission. Please fill the attached letters in and return.




iOS Graphic Requirements
 

Use the checklist below to make sure you have created all the images that are required for App Store submission. If you plan to use the same images across all devices, then only supply iPad Pro and iPhone 6 Plus images as itunes will auto scale them.

The Apple App Store requires 2 screenshots that will appear after you search for the app and are viewing the details. The best way to provide these images is to take a photo of the app’s splash screen and main screen showing the app’s components once you have finished building your app.
