App Store Publishing Service

Next steps after purchasing GoNative's App Store Publishing Service

📘

After purchasing GoNative's App Store Publishing Service please review the below and provide our team with the information required.

1. Finalize your mobile website

Apple requires a production version mobile app for approval. Your website should be fully polished for release with no mention of demo, alpha, beta, test, etc. The website structure must not change during Apple's review and approval process (typically 3-5 days).

2. Configure your app

Not applicable if using our Full-Service App Configuration Service

Please configure your app at https://gonative.io/new as far as you are comfortable. You may modify your configuration and rebuild as many times as you wish. Please make special note of any features or configuration options you would like us to complete for you. Once you have finished configuring your app, please reply back with the Private Management URL of the specific app you wish to publish.

Please pay special attention to:

  • App name (at most 13 characters to fit under the app icon on the device home screen, but the app store listing name can be adjusted and made longer prior to submission)
  • App icon (recommended square image 1024x1024px)
  • Use your app icon to generate iOS Launch Images and Android Launch Images under General Styling
  • Specify your iOS Bundle Id and Android Package Name under Build Settings
  • Push Notifications - if your license includes Push. We will configure OneSignal for you if you leave the App ID blank

3. Grant developer access

The easiest way to grant GoNative access to publish your apps on your behalf is to invite the email provided to you when you purchased our Publishing Service as Admin to your Apple and Google developer account teams below.

If you do not yet have these accounts, you may register them at the following links.

4. User login

If your app includes any ability for users to login please provide a demo username and password. Apple will require demo credentials as part of their app store review, and we will need to login to generate basic screenshots that you may modify before submission if desired.

5. Push Notifications setup (only if you have purchased Push Notifications)

If you leave OneSignal App ID blank in your configuration we will set up OneSignal and invite you via email. You may then invite additional team members to the account as required.

6. App Store Listing Details

Add the below details to your app store listings or provide to our publishing team.

If you would like our team to create app store listing screenshots provide instructions for each screenshot required, such as page URLs or steps to navigate to the required screens within your app.
If you are providing your own images refer to App Store Screenshots for guidelines.
