When you have tested your app and the code is ready for production, it’s time to start checking and double testing before you start submitting and launching your app.
Sinch have some questions you should ask before setting your app live.
If you have not been keeping your version of the SDK up to date, double check that you are running the latest version to take advantage of the updates and revisions we have made to make your calling and messaging experience even better. Don’t worry, we make sure to ensure backward compatibility so that you don’t have to change your code when upgrading SDK version.
If you plan to publish your apps on the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store, you need to make sure that you follow their regulations and guidelines, especially for apps that use encryption. We have put together an export page to help you get started with this and make the process a little easier.
We recommend testing your apps and Sinch features on the 2 most recent versions of iOS and Android. You should also test your app on a modern smartphone and another device that is about 2 years old just to make sure. This is especially important for Android apps.
We love to talk about developers using the Sinch SDK in their apps in our use case study section. If you are launching an app, we would really like it if you can email us and let us know so we can write a case study about you and share your app on our social networks.
And then follow our small checklist to get your app live.
The best advice we can give is to listen to your users. Check your reviews and feedback on the Google Play and iOS App store to see how your users are using your app. They will give invaluable feedback and advice on how to improve your app further.
Finally, consider investing in some mobile analytics software to better track and analyze how your app is being used. There are some great solutions out there.
All the best!
