5 tips to upload your App successfully in the App Store

One of the main challenges in Mobile App Development for iOS is uploading your product into the App Store.

Because of the multiple validation rules that Apple has established in its environment. I know that being rejected by the store can be frustrating for both the developer and the client, but do not be alarmed, it is not rare and even more if it’s the first version of the application. There can be multiple reasons for rejection, from small bugs to lack of information on the app in the store.

One important point to consider before sending an application for review is to check the  App Store Review Guidelines, so you can be sure that you are not breaking any rule that may lead to rejection.

Having said that, I have created a list of tips to help you make a successful presentation of your application to the store, all based on my experience:

  • Validate that the application has no functionality errors

This point may seem obvious, but if the application crashes during the review, it will be rejected. Be sure to do a QA software testing on all the devices that the app was developed for (iPhone, iPads, iPods) before applying to the store.

  • Don’t omit any information

One of the most common reasons for rejection is the lack of metadata, so make sure all information is complete. Don’t omit any features in the description. The users should be clear about the purpose of the application. Add screenshots that show the main features of the app and avoid leaving disabled options that will only be implemented in future versions.

  • Don’t forget to add the Privacy Policies

If your application collects user information, then you must include the Privacy Policies and allow users to consent to your storage.

  • Describe all the functionalities of the app in your configuration file (.plist)

If your application uses any functionality while in the background, for example, GPS, make sure that your .plist file contains the necessary information or the corresponding permission.

  • All information requested from users must be used in the application.

If the registration of your application requests the user’s personal information, for example, phone number or gender, and this information isn’t used within the application, there are risks of being rejected. This doesn’t mean that you can’t ask for this information since we know that many of this data, although not used within the core of the app, can be used for statistical reports, so if the case applies, just make sure the requested information isn’t mandatory.

I know that these suggestions don’t guarantee the approval of your application, but if you follow them, you will be more likely to have an app approved in the App Store and ready to share with the world.
