Forgetting items from the submission you make to the Android Market or Apple App Store will lead to rejection. Prepare your app-store submission by ensuring that you have included each of the items on these two checklists.

Before submitting your application to the Apple App Store, check that you have:

  • Your application name chosen.

  • An application description written. Check that the word "beta" doesn't appear in text within your app and in your descriptive text. Apple dislikes having this word used in finished products.

  • Primary and secondary categories chosen.

  • Subcategories selected.

  • The copyright attribution decided.

  • An app rating chosen.

  • Keywords identified.

  • The SKU number created.

  • An application website URL working.

  • Screenshots prepared.

  • The support website URL working. Your support website should resolve at the URL you supply. If it isn't available, your app is likely to be rejected.

  • A support Email Address configured.

  • The End User License Agreement written, if required.

  • Pricing decided.

  • The available date chosen.

  • Distribution territories selected.

  • Large App Icon 512px x 512px created. Ensure that the 512px x 512px image you're preparing to submit with your IPA file matches the icon images compiled into your application.

  • Your application compiled with an Apple Distribution Certificate and a Distribution - App Store Provisioning profile.

  • Your application IPA file correctly compiled and bug free. Test on your iOS device.

Before submitting your application to the Android Market, check that you have:

  • Your application title chosen.

  • An application description written.

  • Two screenshots (maximum of 8) captured.

  • High resolution application icon 512px x 512px created. Ensure that the 512px x 512px image you're preparing to submit with your APK file matches the icon images compiled into your application.

  • Your application content rating chosen.

  • Category selected.

  • Pricing decided.

  • Distribution locations selected.

  • An optional promotional graphic prepared.

  • An optional feature graphic created.

  • An optional promotional video link setup.

  • The support website URL working.

  • Ensure the P12 certificate you compile your app with is valid for a minimum of 25 years from the date you submit the app.

  • Ensure your application APK file is correctly compiled for device release and is bug free. Test on your Android device.
