Faq

I discovered a bug (i.e. a malfunction or display problem) and I can’t find any info in these FAQs. What should I do?

If you encounter a problem that isn’t listed here, click “Support” and take the time to explain the problem in detail. Use a valid email so we can send you an answer. The technical support team will do their best to answer you as soon as possible.

The simulator looks like an iPhone (Apple Smartphone), but I have an Android Smartphone. Will it still work?

Yes. The image used for the simulator is there to give you an idea only. Your real application will be published both on the Apple Store and on Google Play, so it will work equally well on both Android phones and iPhones.

What is the hammer symbol next to the name of my application?

The little hammer shows that your application isn’t complete yet and so isn’t yet available on the app stores (Apple Store or Google Play).
In order to publish your application, thereby making it available to your customers, you need to check that all the functions/categories contain at least one piece of content. A cursor that starts off red, gradually turning yellow then green, indicates where you’re at in the process.
You can publish your application as soon as at least one piece of content is recorded. We suggest that you publish your application as quickly as possible, and then progressively update it. That way your customers / users can more quickly access your application on their mobiles.
And that means that you’ll never leave your customers’ pocket.

I added some content to my application but the simulator isn’t showing it.

This means that the simulator still hasn’t taken on board your recent changes. All you need to do is refresh the page (F5) or click “Update your content”.

How do I add a photo, a product, an update or a video to my application?

To add information or photos, click on “My Applications”. Choose the application that you want to change. Choose the section that you want to update or change.
You then have two options:
Either you save (click “Save”) or this update is saved without being published in the applications that users have downloaded. When you’re ready to publish, follow the steps below.
Or you publish directly (click “Publish”) and your update is automatically published (sent out) to all users of your application as soon as they open it.

How do I change my personal details?

Click on “My Account” and change your email or personal details.

What should I do if my application isn’t showing on the Apple Store or Google Play?

In order to ensure that your application is available on Apple Store and Google Play, you must pay for your application on the MY APP site. To do this, click on “Payment” and choose your payment method – PayPal or credit card.
You will receive a confirmation email when your application is available on the application stores.
Please note that an application that is not properly completed might be temporarily refused by the stores. Your application should have a clear purpose for users. Follow the instructions on the screen and provide quality content.
The publisher of this site will inform you that you are fully responsible for all content that you put on your application. Inappropriate content or content that is illegal in your country or the destination country might be refused by the stores and your account cancelled without further notice or possibility of reimbursement.

How can I get information on what aspects users of my application like / don’t like, and on the number of application downloads?

Click on “Statistics” and access the user stats for your application. These stats will help you develop your application content, functions (change or improve those that users don’t employ much), news, special offers and so on.

Why is there a Smartphone on my screen?

This is a simulator; it will show you a preview of your application. This virtual Smartphone means you can see in real time what your application or your updated content will look like.
