iPhone

Apps created using iEveryware run on all iOS devices: iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

Apple Developer Account

To publish an app in the App Store requires an Apple Developer Account. When creating apps with iEveryware, we can publish your app using your Apple account or ours. Most customers releasing free apps to the App Store choose to use our Apple account, while customers releasing paid apps must use their own Apple accounts.

Maintaining your own Apple Developer Account costs $99 per year plus 30% of your app sales revenue. Note that all of this is paid to Apple, and we don't take any part of your revenue. To sign up for an Apple account, start here: http://developer.apple.com/programs/ios/

Free v. Paid Apps

You can use iEveryware to create and launch free or paid apps into the App Store. To release a free app, simply hit the Publish button within iEveryware, and we’ll publish your app to the App Store for you – it’s that easy.

To create a paid app, you must have your own Apple iTunes connect account. For this, Apple charges $99 per year plus 30% of your app sales revenue. Note that all of this is paid to Apple, and we don’t take any part of your revenue. You can set the price of your app, starting as low as $0.99, and change it anytime. To sign up for an Apple account, start here: http://developer.apple.com/programs/ios/

To create a paid app, simply follow the directions within iEveryware, and we’ll publish your paid app to the App Store for you as well.

Submission and Approval Process

Once your app is complete, you can use iEveryware to publish it to the App Store. Whether you choose to submit a free or paid app using your account or ours, we’ll handle the submission to Apple on your behalf. All you have to do is hit the Publish button within iEveryware.

Once your app has been submitted to Apple, it usually takes 1–2 weeks to be reviewed and, most always, approved. Once your app is approved, you have the option of making it available in the App Store immediately or of setting a future release date.

Approvals and Rejection

Most apps are approved on the first try. This is true for nine out of ten apps we submit for our customers. As long as you follow Apple’s guidelines, primarily concerning the type of content allowed in apps, your app should be approved.

Apps are generally rejected for one of two reasons: technical or content related. If your app is rejected for technical reasons, we’ll address the issue and resubmit it to Apple at no additional cost to you. If your app is rejected for content reasons, we’ll enable you to edit your content and resubmit your app for approval. Once an app is fixed and resubmitted, it’s most usually approved.

Updating your App and Resubmissions

Most updates made to your app, including updated data arriving through your feeds, or content or editorial changes made to your app within iEveryware, happen in real time in your app.

For certain types of changes, including changing your app’s splash screen, icon and/or iTunes description, your app must be resubmitted for approval. The resubmission process takes the same 1–2 weeks as the original submission process. Because of the time it takes us to resubmit an app, there is a surcharge for resubmission.

Preview App

Download our Preview App from the App Store to test your app on your iOS device as you’re building it on iEveryware. Our Preview App will let you see exactly how your app will look and feel before submitting it to the App Store.
