We all know it is very difficult to get an application (App) published in the App Store. So, if you or your mobile app development team is developing an app, you are surely wondering whether your application will be unique enough to make it through the Apple review process. It is a very common question and asked by most of the people, particularly those who have never submitted an app to the App Store before. Therefore, we are providing you with 10 things that you should do in order to ensure that your app gets a place in the App Store without any issue.
All Links Must Be Functional
Provide all the details required to review your app in the App Review Information section of iTunes Connect. For example, if there are particular configurations to set, then include the specifics. Also, if some features need signing in, then provide a valid demo account user name with password. Ensure your contact information is complete.
Bugs & Crashes
Submit your app for review when it is complete or ready to be published. Ensure that your app soundly tested on devices as well as fix all bugs before submitting it.
App description and screen-shots must accurately convey the functionality of your application because it will help users to understand your app.
Quick Load Time
Your app must be as fast as possible because having an app that takes long time to load does not reflect greatly on your or Apple, and if it does not load within 10 seconds iOS will kill your app.
Give Importance To UI/UX
Remember, Apple loves those applications that are simple to navigate, use and attractive to the eye. Besides, Apple tends to feature apps that display niche user interface. A complex app has greater chances of being rejected by Apple.
Before sending your app for review, you need to finalize all images with text in your app. This is because apps that are still in progress or contain placeholder content cannot be approved as they are not ready to be distributed.
Don't Submit Beta
Bear in mind that Apple doesn’t accept demo apps, and even those apps that are in the still in the beta stage. So, ensure that your app is fully complete and is working accurately.
Great Use Of Apple Icons And Buttons
Apple makes guidelines for icons and buttons in order that your app integrates with iOS smoothly. So, only use the icons and buttons for the purpose that they were designed for.
Always Respect Apple’s Guidelines
Do you know that about 75% apps are rejected because of not respecting Apple Interface Guidelines? Thus, make sure before designing an app that you are up to speed with Apple rules and regulations.
So, keeping these points mentioned above in mind, you improve your chances of your app being submitted on the first try.
