Written by on Monday, January 11th 2021

Today the mobile app market is expanding rapidly as our society relies increasingly on smartphones and digital technology. 

According to Statista in 2017, 178 million apps were downloaded, and this number is set to reach 258 billion by 2022. There’s clearly a high demand for apps, which renders the mobile market highly competitive.

Written by on Monday, January 4th 2021

Testing an exact copy of your app (called the AdHoc version), in the same version as the one which will be released on the stores, is a very important step you shouldn’t overlook. If you are using GoodBarber, you will find in your back office dedicated online helps to generate the AdHoc version, for both the iOS and the Android version of your app.

This article will provide an overview of the steps to follow to successfully publish your Android and iOS app.

Written by on Friday, December 11th 2020

Article originally published 07/10/2017.

Agencies often wonder if they can use their own developer account to publish their clients' apps or if they should ask their clients to create their own accounts.

They want to be contractually bound to the owner of the content, i.e. your client, not you.
