Why update Google Play's Data safety section for your app?

In 2021, Google announced additional details for the Data safety section on Google Play. Developers are now required to tell Google about their apps' privacy and security practices by completing a form in Play Console. This information will be shown on your app's Store Listing to help Google Play users understand how your app collects and shares user data before they download. By 20 July 2022, all developers must declare how they collect and handle user data for the apps that they publish on Google Play and provide details about how they protect this data through security practices.  By not following these guidelines, you will find yourself at risk of having your app removed from the Play Store. Note: if you have subscribed to the GoodBarber Takes Care service, no worries. If you receive this type of email, simply open a ticket with our support team who will handle this for you

What's new at GoodBarber? February 2023

This month we are proud to introduce a brand new navigation mode: the Floating TabBar. It is a new and trendy version of the popular TabBar navigation mode. The TabBar is very popular because it follows the "thumb rule of design" and is very intuitive. The essential screens and pages of an app should be within the user's thumb reach. The TabBar places the essential sections of the app within the user's thumb's reach, improving convenience and accessibility. The floating version will bring a modern touch to the overall look of your app.   Below is a summary of the developments and updates made during the month of February 2023:

The growing market of B2B mobile apps

This is largely due to the easy accessibility of smartphones and other mobile devices, which many business team workers, customers, and stakeholders use to manage their day-to-day tasks.

How to create an app to manage your appointment bookings?

If you manage a service company, you probably know how tedious managing customer appointments can be: you have to answer the phone, agree on a date with the customer, and put it on your calendar, all the while being careful not to make any mistakes... In short, it is a time-consuming and sensitive task because mistakes in scheduling appointments can considerably impact your organization and create friction among your customers. As you can see, the solution that allows you to gain time and reliability is to create an app to manage your appointment scheduling. Offering an online appointment booking service via an app has huge advantages for your customers, and consequently allows you to stand out from the competition. With an app, your customers can book appointments 24/7. No need to wait for your opening hours, they can choose their slot at any time of the day or night. They also gain autonomy and you gain time: your calendar and your available slots are displayed, so your customers can choose the one that suits them best without having to discuss it with anyone. Everyone wins: your clients have immediate access to the information they are interested in and can choose their slot quietly and without pressure. On your side, you drastically reduce the number of phone calls you will receive and therefore interruptions in your working day. The ability to book appointments online has become a major argument for many consumers to choose their service providers. It is a feature that will give your business a modern image and will definitely help you in its development.

App Store Connect remains open during the holiday season

Good news! Once again, Apple won’t be closing down the App Store to developer submissions over the holidays, as it has in previous years.  "The busiest season on the App Store is almost here! Make sure your apps and product pages are up to date and ready in advance of the upcoming holidays. We’re pleased to remain open throughout the season again this year and look forward to accepting your submissions. On average, 90% of submissions are reviewed in less than 24 hours. However, reviews may take a bit longer to complete from December 23 to 27."  This will be the second year Apple has kept the App Store Connect platform open through the holiday season. For example, last year, App Store Connect was closed from December 23rd to December 27th.  This is great news for developers who can keep submitting new apps or updates.  However, Apple does warn that during this busy time, reviews might take longer.  For your GoodBarber iOS app, we do recommend having your app ready for submission before December 23rd to avoid any delays in your publication.  This applies to apps distributed to the general public on the App Store, and to Custom Apps distributed via Apple Business Manager. If your iOS app is distributed internally outside of the App Store via an Enterprise account, this has no impact on you
