  • 99 Things to Check Before You Submit an App to iTunes
  • #1 Apply for a developer account a month before submission!   You need a paid iOS developer account ($99/year) to submit your app to iTunes. If not, apply at least a month before your scheduled submission date on https://developer.apple.com/
  • #2 Understand the metadatashown on iTunes App Store!   App name: Required, 255 characters limit Description: Required, 4000 characters limit Keywords: Required, 100 characters limit Category: Primary required, secondary optional Organization Name: Required URL to help content: Required Support information: Email required Privacy policy URL: Optional Marketing URL: Optional
  • #3 Choose a name that is easy to understand and remember!   It’s better to let users know what it can do. Such as “Draw something”!   It’s better to show the most important feature. Such as “Find my iPhone”!   Use symbols to change a word into a name. Such as “Comic Book!” and “Photo+”!   Use animal characters to enliven and personalize your app. Such as “PandaForm” and “TaskRabbit”
  • #4 Prepare an eye-catching icon!   A good icon can make huge difference. Don’t lose your users at the first sight. Have a look at the following icons from ActionSnap, MomentCamera, BeautyCamera and ArtCamera, I believe you can tell that some are better looking than others.!   Because iTunes and Google Play both requires a series of app icon sizes, it’s troublesome to make them one by one. Here is a helpful website for you to tailor the size of your app icon in a second:! www.makeappicon.com
  • #5 Make your description concise and clear!   Tell readers what your app does in the very beginning, because iTunes will hide the following content and just show the first three lines, and maxim 148 characters per line.!   Separate your text into several paragraphs and leave blank lines between each section.!   List key features clearly.!   Quoting user reviews (if available) is of great help.!   Don’t forget to include the address of your website, in case users want to know more about the app or your company.
  • #6 A good screenshot ismore useful than 1000 words!   iTunes requires one screenshot, and you can upload 5 screenshots in total. The requirement is: 960 x 640 px or 920 x 640 px, 72dpi, RGB, flattened, no transparency, high quality JPEG, TIFF, or PNG and not include iPhone status bar.
  • #7 Choose the right keywords!   Try some keywords in Google Keyword Tool (https:// adwords.google.com/o/KeywordTool). You can see how many times the keywords are searched, and get inspirations of other relevant words.!   Type your keywords in iTunes, and test how it gives feedback to your search.
