Points to check before packaging

After packaging the mobile application into an iOS IPA file or Android APK file, you will need to upload the IPA or APK file to the online application stores to get the app approved.

For the iOS IPA file, Apple follows strict guidelines to review the app before it approves and posts the app to the iOS App Store. To get the app approved, you may need to carefully read the App Store Review Guidelines (you will need to log in first to view the page) and verify the app is in compliance with these guidelines.

The following lists the most common areas and reasons we have found so far that will cause the app to be rejected by Apple or Google.

  1. Check that if your app includes UI controls for quitting the app. For example, a button labeling "Quit", "Exit", etc. You'd better remove any mechanism for quitting the app, as this is not in compliance with the iOS Human Interface Guidelines, as required by the App Store Review Guidelines (you will need to log in first to view the page).

  2. Check that if your app appears to be for demonstration or trial purposes only. For example, "demo", "trial", "test" or "beta" is displayed on the app UI, app description or release notes. You'd better remove any these references and complete or fully configure any partially implemented features.

  3. Google Play will check the OpenSSL version used in any library of the package. The current version of OpenSSL used in the Appeon library files are 1.0.1q and 1.0.1s. If you receive any message from Google Play about the OpenSSL version used in the package, please contact our Appeon Support team for suggestions.
