App Checklist

What we need you to supply.

We take care of building the app, all the coding and dealing with Apple and Android platforms, we just need a few items from you to brand and customise your app. If you would like us to create all the graphics (1-3 below) we are happy to do so, and all we will require from you is a vectored logo (.eps, .ai, or .pdf) or a very high resolution Jpeg. We will then create the necessary graphics for you.


1. App Button

AppIconTo create your app icon, we will need a vectored logo (.eps or .pdf) or a high resolution Jpg file at least 1024×1024 pixels.




2. Splash Screen

BC-TabletViewThis is the first screen that appears when your app is opened on devices and it displays on the screen while the app loads. This is usually your logo on a background of your choice. We can use your masthead, or you can provide us artwork for this screen. If you provide the artwork the graphic should be supplied as a .png RGB file in the following pixel dimensions. We will re-size from the largest dimensions detailed below:

Portrait
1536 (w) x 2008 pixels

Landscape
2048 (w) x 1496 pixels


3. Home Screen Masthead


BC-MastHead

TabletWithMasterHeadYour app home screen will display your branding, which is usually your brochure masthead. Please provide us with a copy of your masthead, with a transparent background. The masthead graphic should be at least 148 pixels high. We will resize for all devices.



4. App Name & Device Name

Your app name must be unique on the Apple App Store, so it’s worth checking availability first. Your app name will be displayed in full on app store listings but will often be a shorter version on devices. Devices like iPhones display app names with a maximum length of around 10-14 characters (depending on character width). We will require both your full app name plus your device name.



5. Keywords

When we submit your app, we embed keywords in the source code which enables your app to be found when users search app stores. Please provide a list of keywords that users will enter to find your app. Your list of keywords should be no more than 100 characters (including punctuation).


6. App Description

Your app description is what will be displayed on App Stores at the point it is downloaded. This describes your app and will persuade people to download it. The description should be no more than 4000 characters.
