    Are you going to be creating an option to upload and share via Apple and Android platforms? If so, when approximately? Thanks!

    Hi Steve,

    The Apps can be shared on all platforms with the URL link or the QR-code.
    Could you kindly elaborate a little on how exactly would you be looking to share the apps on Apple and Android devices?
    If you can give us a bit more details, I can open a feature request for this to raise awareness to our developers.

    The vast majority of people usually think Apple or Android download page to get their apps or find new ones for their needs, which is right on their phone. This way, those that build the app, are able to attract new customers too. The current setup you have is for sharing the app with the customer's user base or finding paid ways to get a link out. I am not sure if I am answering the question but there does not seem to be a way to upload these apps to either Apple or Android download pages.

    Hi Steven,

    Thank you for getting back to us.

    Unfortunately, currently it is not possible to make the Apps available on download pages such as the App Store or Google Play, as launching an app on these platforms is multi-step process.
    I have forwarded this to our developers as a feature request together with your message. We do not have an estimated timeframe or cannot guarantee that this feature will be implemented, but as soon as we have any updates, we will inform you here on this ticket.

    If you have your own website, you can insert a link or a QR-code to the app to your webpage, so that everyone who accesses your homepage can find the app. You can also print out the QR-code and put it somewhere in your office, so that your customers will notice the app while visiting.

    We appreciate the time to give us your feedback!
