What do I get in my subscription?
- A mobile app based on the app your purchased, with a modified look and feel to suit your website.
- The colours, icons, fonts, splash screens and backgrounds can be replaced to yours (You will have to provide us those).
- Note that any functional or workflow modifications are not a part of the purchase
- In case you have any extensions installed which modify the workflow of the base extension for the app, then any unexpected behavior in the app is not covered in the subscription. You need to request custom development for the same
- Publishing this modified version of the app to the Apple iTunes Store and Android Play Store via your accounts.
- 6 months access to the main stream of the source code so that after the first build you can build yourself
- Access to Updates for the main source code and Support! Updates of the App to your customised build as long as you have an active subscription
** Subscribers will be provided an updated build within 30 days only after a new stable release is out. Note that this timeline only holds if your app does not have any customisation over and above what we give in the standard customisation package. If you have bought additional customisations for us, the upgrade might be chargable and would take more time.
If I have a custom branded app, and you make enhancements to the base app, do I get updates to my version? For how long?
Upon purchase, you get 6 months access to the main app’s source code. Additionally we also provide the modified assets, CSS files the first time we create the build for you. With these 2 you can very easily make the further builds using appropriate software. However if you need us to do updates and builds for us on the app with additional enhancements, it may be charged extra.
Does my purchase include Android as well as the iOS builds?
Yes, it does include both. As of now there are no plans to support Windows
Is the app completely native, or do you use Appcelerator or Phonegap for cross-platform compatibility?
It's a hybrid app, built using Cordova for cross platform compatibility. Most apps use Unite Framework (which is based on Ionic 2) or AngularJS Mobile as the internal framework.
How does Support work? Is it a yearly contract?
The cost includes 6 months of ticket support to the customer (you) but not to your end users.
How does deploying to the app stores work? Do you deploy it or do I have to register for a developer account and do it?
We prefer that you sign up for your own store accounts and give us access so that we can launch using your account. We can launch using our account as well, but from a branding perspective we seriously don’t recommend that :)
What kind of hardware/software would I need to build the app myself?
For IOS build -
A developer account on iTunes/Apple
You will need a Mac with the latest Mountain Lion (Older versions may work, but not tested)
For Android build -
A Google Play Store Account
Android Developement Tool - ADT Bundle
How Long does it take to publish the app on playstore and iTunes?
- After you submit the required assets to us, we will need around 2 weeks to create a customised build using your assets.

- Once you verify everything is in order, we will start making your app live on the Android and Apple stores.
- For the Google Play (Android) store, it will get published on the same day we upload the app.
- For iTunes Store (iOS), it will take a further 10-15 days for the app to go live, this is the normal time Apple takes for completing the review of any app.
Will the App be provided in any language?
Yes, the app can be provided to you in any one language (you will have to provide the translation) you want. However, that language can't be changed later.

Also note that we are not doing anything besides adding the link you provide us in the app menu. How the link behaves or looks is not in our control.
