Frequently Asked Questions

 

How long does it take to get Apps online?

We submit apps within 7 business days after you provide us with all required data. Android apps appears in Google Play immediately after submission. Apple reviews all apps and this process may take up to 14 days or sometimes even more. We can't affect this process.

 

How will my app be delivered?

We deliver apps as binaries. We'll submit both iPhone and Android apps to AppStore and Google Play for you. We may also send you Android .apk file if you would like to distribute it in another ways rather than Google Play.

Please note: if you would like to review apps before submission, please let us know, but we consider your purchase as delivered when we'll send you installation files.

 

Will the app fit my website layout?

All apps include basic color customizations to fit your website. If you are not happy with color scheme choosen by our dev team you'll be able to change it at any moment on-the-fly in your Admin panel. 

If you feel you need more custom layout kindly contact our sales department to get a free quote on such a customization.

 

I have a customized PHPFox core. Will the app work with it?

We have server-side part for our applications which we'll need to install on your phpFox website. If you changed phpFox core features apps may have some issues. Our dev team may adopt the app to work with your customized core at affordable price. 

Server side module is not a mod to phpFox, so you'll be able to update your phpFox without any risk. 

Please note: We may ask you to open some server ports to make PUSH notifications work, so this feature may not work if you're using shared hosting. It's not a problem on VPS and VDS (and actually some shared hostings too).

 

I need more features, is it possible to add them to the app?

If you would like to create custom versions of apps, i.e. free app with limited functionality and full-featured paid app, we may customize the app to fit your needs. Kindly contact our sales department.
