Mobile app checklist
This page outlines the steps involved in launching your mobile app. Note, steps 6 to 8 are only required if you are using in-app payments (subscriptions).
1. Set up your web app
Your mobile app will use the same content and configuration as your web app. So, add your recipes, meal plans, branding, and settings in your web app first.
2. Set up app developer accounts
So that we can upload your Android and iOS apps ready for submission to the app stores, you will need to give us admin access to your and Google Play and App Store Connect accounts. Follow the instructions for Google (here) and Apple (here).
3. Provide additional content (link)
There are a few extra things we will need from you to set up your mobile app. Please make a copy of this worksheet and return it to us.
4. Complete mandatory information in your accounts
If you have created a new Google Play and/or Apple Developer account, then you will need to complete any mandatory information related to tax, payments, identity, and more. These can typically be found on your app Dashboard (Google) and Agreements (Apple).
5. Create a Google service account (optional)
If you are using in-app payments, then you need to link a service account so that we can communicate with Google on your behalf. Follow the instructions here.
6. We will build your app
Once you have completed the steps above, we will build your mobile app and upload it to your accounts.
7. Set up in-app subscriptions (optional)
8. Set up free trial (optional)
If you want to use a free trial alongside in-app payments, then you will need to set these up as an introductory offer your Google Play and Apple Developer accounts, in the subscriptions section.
9. Set up your app store listings
10. Review your app
You will have the opportunity to review your app before it is sent to the app stores. This is also a good opportunity to capture screenshots (see below). Follow these instructions to add more test users.
11. Create app screenshots
In order to submit your app, you will need to provide app screenshots for your listings page. If you’re not confident doing this, then you can always hire a freelancer on Fiverr or use a tool like AppScreens.
