How it works

We are going to show you how appsxprs works and go through the entire process of creating an application.

Once you’re registered, you will access this page:




You can either start by creating an application or, if you are a reseller, creating your white label administration interface. A white label administration interface enables your clients to handle the everyday management of their applications by connecting to your domain name, rather than by accessing appsxprs.com. Your clients won’t see us at all.

Now we are going to examine the process of creating an application.

Enter the name of your application. Say, for example, “Jim’s Burger.” and click on “Create”.

You will access this page:




Just choose from one of the available templates to get a prebuilt app with features in it, colors and content, or choose the blank template (or just close this template window) to start with an empty app.
Then this page appears:


You can see 5 steps to get your app done: Design, Colors, Features, Application, Publication. Let’s see them one by one in details.

1. Design

  • Choose your template

We’ve just see it. By clicking on the button “Choose your design” you will be able to change the template of your app. Take care if you have already chosen some colors and images for your app, they will be replaces by the ones of this template.

  • Choose your layout

Then choose your layout:


A layout is the type of icons tab bar of your app. If you are ok with the one of your template, you can skip this step. Otherwise you can choose a new tab bar for your app:

…According to whether you would like your application to be a single row of icons:


a double row of icons:


Six squares:
Six circles:

Or any other layouts. You can play with them, that will not hurt your app.With some layouts you will have some other options. For example if you choose the layout 1 you will get this option: “Visible from all the application’s pages (removes the homepage)”. By selecting this option, the icon tab bar will be displayed in all your application’s page, it will be persistant in all your pages.

Another option is “Display the homepage slider”, with this option you will be able to upload images to display a slider on your app homepage.

  • Choose your homepage image

From there you can upload the background images that will be used for your homepage. Be sure to upload an image for all screen sizes to match every devices (iPhones, iPads, Android phones and tablets)

If you check the option “Use into all your application’s page”, this image will be set as a background image for all your application’s page.

If you check the option “Hide iOS status bar”, the status bar displaying the time, battery level, etc will not be displayed in your iOS app.

You may also choose the country of the app, it is useful only if you use some features like Mcommerce to display the good currency, and you can also change the font used in your app.

2. Colors

Here you will be able to choose the colors of your application. Click on the elements to the left and you will see on the right in the preview that the element in question will twinkle for a few seconds.
Here are a few explanations to get you started using the graphics palette:


You may begin by using your mouse to choose the color spectrum that you are looking for and then choose the hue. If you know the color’s hexadecimal code (or RGB), you may directly type this code into the fields provided and then click Enter.
Keep in mind that Apple will not validate your application if you choose a kaleidoscope of clashing colors. A design tip: If you are not an expert, keep it simple, for example with white letters on a dark background. Avoid fluorescent colors in particular and you will have the best chances of having your application accepted by Apple.

In “Choose your icon colors” you can activate the option “Transparent”, this way your icon tab bar will have no background color.

3. Features

Adding pages / features to your application:

This part will enable you to create pages / features to your application.

To add pages / features to your application, just click on the features that you wish to add:


The features will be added here:


And, of course, in your application, as you can see in the preview on the right:


Each page corresponds with a feature. This means that each page will have a specific format and function. For example, ‘”News” enables you to display a short news brief and an optional photo to illustrate it, and gives the users of the application the opportunity to give feedback on the news. “Discounts” enables you to create a page with one or more discounts, and so on.

Fill in a page / feature:

To configure a new feature, most of the time you will have to click on the  on the right after having added this feature to your app:


Then fill in the fields according to the features.

Note that you can have other options for a page:


With “Manage” you can edit, view, remove a previous setting.

With “Background” you can choose a background image for this page.

With “Design”, if available for this page, you can choose a new way of displaying your items in this page. Here is an example for the Discount feature:


There are 4 layouts available for a discount page.

To rearrange the page order of your application:

At this point, you have added pages to your application and would like to change the page order. To do so, just hover the mouse over one of your features in “Your pages”.

You will see this icon . Click, drag and drop the icon from your page to the position where you would like it to be. The modification will be visible in the application preview to the right.

4. Application

Here you will provide additional elements necessary for the release of your application.

Home icon:

This icon appears on users’ handheld devices once they have downloaded the application. Example on an IPhone:


Just click on “Modify your icon,” upload the desired image and adjust the dimensions.

Startup image:

The loading image or splash screen is the first image that the user will see when he launches the application. We offer various elements that you can arrange, and you can also upload your own elements.

5. Publication

Here you will enter the additional information necessary for the release of your application.

General information:

Application name: This will be the name of your application in the Apple and Android stores. Choose a short name with less than 30 characters. The name of the business is commonly used. This is here you can change the name of your app if you need to.

Description: Describe the features that your application offers. An example would be “Get your loyalty points directly on your mobile device.”

Keywords: Keywords enable the user to find you in the Apple and Android stores. Enter the name of the business and other appropriate keywords. If your business is a pizzeria, examples would be “restaurant, pizza.” Separate the keywords with commas.

Main category: Choose the category in which you would like your application to be displayed. Generally shops are listed in “Lifestyle,” while restaurants are listed in “Food and Drink.”

Secondary category: Choosing this category is optional.

Monetize your app: You can choose to monetize your app using AdMob.
Click here to see the process of creating your AdMob ID.

Apple information and Google information:
Before your application is submitted, you will need to open an iOS developper account (for Apple products: IPhone and IPad) and a Google Play account (for Android). These accounts are requisite to release applications in the Apple and Android stores. You will pay $99/year (approximately €79) for an App Store account, and $25 lifetime (approximately €19) for a Google Play account. These accounts enable you to release as many applications as you wish; you will not pay for each application.
If you do not yet have a developer account:

Note: you can choose to publish your app under our own Apple developer account, but in this case, our company name will appear as the developer of your app.

Once you have created the accounts, you must enter login information for these stores in the fields provided:


If you are a reseller, or whatever, and want to create a custom url for your webapp (aka mobile website), you need to go in the “Settings > Domain” menu. It’s not mandatory to publish your app, but in “Settings > Domain” you’ll be able to custom the url of your mobile website with your own domain url.

YOU’RE DONE! All you have to do is click on   and as soon as your payment goes through, we will submit your application to the stores.

To make sure your application is accepted by Apple, make sure you know the ground rules for all applications.

Stuff you need to publish an app

Before publishing a mobile app you need :

  • an IOS (Iphone&Ipad) and Google Play (Android) developer account : it’s an account asked by stores to publish your apps. They respectively cost $99/year and $25. With these accounts you’ll be able to publish as many applications as you want, you won’t have to pay for each application. We’ll publish your apps under your developer accounts, so you’ll have to give us your login account information in the publishing section.
  • the description of the app : just a few words to describe the application : what’s in, what users could do with it, etc.
  • keywords : some keywords for your application separated by commas. For example for a restaurant : “business name”, “restaurant”, “town+restaurant”, “town+business name”, etc.
  • Application store categorie(s) : for a business it’s not really obvious as store’s categories are “books”, “productivity”, “lifestyle”, “entertainment”…we recommend to choose “lifestyle” for businesses apps, or “food and drink” if it’s a restaurant. You can choose a second categorie but it’s not mandatory.
  • A domain name for Webapp domain and CNAME modifications : this one is a little bit harder for non tech savvy people. In fact, when you build your app on APPSXPRS you get a mobile website (or webapp) in addition to your 2 native apps (IOS & Android). This webapp will be accessible from users mobile browser, so you need an url.Click here to see how creating an adress for your webapp.

To be sure your app will be published

To be sure your app will be validated by Apple you have some things to know (for Android’s Google Play there is no validation, so it’s more easy):

  • All your pages have to be filled out with content. Please be sure you have no empty pages. If you have a news feature for example, enter one news, and with a picture it would even better.
  • Content: no explicit contents in your apps! But it was obvious 😉
  • Design: please choose cool colors with complementarity. If you don’t really know how to find colors with complementarity you can use http://colorschemedesigner.com/. But no rainbow apps, please don’t.
  • Features: Apple want useful apps. So don’t create apps with only one or two features. And enter relevant content with multimedia (videos, images, etc)
  • Write a good description of your app. You have to explain what the users would be able to find in your application, and why they have to download it. (250 characters minimum).
  • Never talk about other platforms in your app! Apple doesn’t want you to talk about Android or Google Play, or Samsung in apps that are on the Apple App Store. Even if there is a logo, or an image about an Apple competitor, your app will be rejected.
  • If there is an account registration tab in your app, or part of your app that is blocked with the Padlock feature, be sure to provide test credentials to Apple in the « Demo » fields on itunesconnect.apple.com if we have published the app under your developer account, or to send these credentials to us prior to publish your app. To know how to create test account, take a look to the Padlock feature article.
  • Never user test content in your app, like « Lorem Ipsum » content or « test », « demo », etc. Apple refuses apps that are not finished, and/or apps for tests.

WordPress feature enables you to integrate the content of a WordPress blog or website in an application. With this feature you have two options:

– You can create an application with only one WordPress page in which you will publish all the content of the blog or some categories you would have chosen.


– Or you can create an application with several wordpress pages in order to publish in each the content of one category of the blog. This way the application homepage will look like this:

Of course, you can change the icons of the wordpress pages in order to set up your own design. To sum up you can add as many wordpress pages as you want to enlighten the content of the blog.

Now, we will learn how to integrate the content of a WordPress website in an application.

Step 1:

First of all you must add a WordPress page in your application. Click on . This window appears:

Click on « Click here to download our WordPress plugin ». Without this plugin you cannot use this feature.

Then, go in your wordpress admin interface. This window appears:

Click on « Plugins » then « Add new ». This windows opens:

Click on « Upload ». This appears:

Click on « Choose File » and select the « app-creator.zip » document (no unzip necessary). Then, when you have selected it, click on « Install Now », and activate it.

Step 2

Go back to your app on APPSXPRSappcreator.com.
Enter the URL of your blog in « Enter your WordPress URL »

Once you have entered the blog’s address click on OK.APPSXPRS will automatically find all the content of the blog and sort all the categories out. Thus you will be able to publish all the content of this blog or only one category. By default APPSXPRS selects all the categories of the blog but obviously you can unselect the ones you don’t want in the page.

Here for example, we decided to only select the « FAQ », « Features », « Installation », « Tips » and « Video Tutorials » categories, but we could select others if we wanted to. You can adopt the strategy you want, either you can create an application with only one wordpress page in which you will publish all the content of the blog or you can create an application with several wordpress pages in order to publish in each the content of one category of your blog.

Once you have chosen your strategy and import your wordpress content, don’t forget to click on « Save » .

Thanks to this feature you will be able to lock your app wholly or partly. The locked content will be accessible for authorized users only. We are going to see how to set up this feature.

First, you have to add the Padlock feature to your app, click on   from « Add pages » to add this feature to your app.

Then you can set it up.

You have two possibilities to unlock the Padlock and grant access to the whole applications to registered users. The first one is to use a QR Code and the QR Code Scan, and the second one is to create an account for your users, or to let them create their own account. Of course you can use both at the same time if you want, it’s up to you.

To allow your users to unlock the Padlock by scanning a QR Code, select QR Code in the Padlock feature. This will create a QR Code that you have to save and print and, for example, display inside your store to allow your customers to unlock some parts of your app by using the QR Code Scan.

Now let’s see how to set up the pages that will be locked by the Padlock.

« Allow all users by default »:
If you select « yes », all users who have already an account on your app, or users who create an account on your app, will be allowed to access to the locked content. Setting on « yes » is useful to create a database of registered users who are the most engaged with your content. If you let on « no », that means you will have to authorize your users manually from the « Users » menu which is between the « Analytics » and « Extra » menus. We will see how a little bit later in this article.

« Lock the entire application »:
If you choose « yes », your whole app will be blocked. And users will have to create an account or to create an account and to be authorized depending on what you have chosen for « Allow all users by default ». With this option you can create a private app. If you choose « no », you will just block some pages of your app:

Just choose from the list the pages you want to block. Of course, you need to have added pages to your app. You can add pages later and open this feature again to block them. The locked pages will not be displayed to the users until they are authorized to see them. Instead of seeing the tabs of this pages, they will just see one tab meaning there is a private content behind:

Once the user is logged in and authorized, the padlock tab disappears and all the tabs are displayed:

How to authorize the users.

If you have chosen not to authorize all the registered users by default, you will have to authorize them manually from the « Users » menu, in the editor:

Click on it. All the users who have created an account in your app, are listed.

Click on  to edit a user.

If you want to authorize the user, all you have to do is to check the corresponding checkbox « This user can access the pages locked by the « locker » feature. Then click on « Ok ».

A little warning regarding the publication of your app on the App Store. Before submitting an app, create a test user with authorized access. Then, when you publish your app on iTunes Connect just fill out these info in the user demo fields to let Apple reviews what is behind the padlock feature.

Have fun!
