Please read more about the iOS app here.
What’s provided with this purchase?
This purchase will provide the complete Xcode project for the current GBS Demo App including professionally structured and commented code.
Can I publish to the App Store myself?
Publishing in the App Store isn’t as simple as you might think. Apple provides some great documentation that will help but we recommend using Sprout Venture to assist you with this process. We’ve partnered with them to help with this project and they are currently offering a discounted rate for customizations and App Store submissions.
What do I need to know/have in order to customize the app and submit it myself?
- The latest version of Xcode
- An iOS Developer Program membership
- Proficiency in HTML and CSS
- (Of course) a GBS site running with version 4.1+ with the JSON API activated
- Purchasing within the app has been disabled because most sites will need a custom payment processor for API payments
The app was built with Cordova to allow for easy customizations and deployments.
Payments don’t work out of the box?
Correct. In-App purchasing is a bit tricky and each site will need their own custom API processor, no matter if you use Paypal or Authorize.net. Sprout Venture is well versed on how to build something for your site’s API. For development and installation quotes regarding this, please contact them directly.
So, what are the final costs?
Because each GBS-powered site is unique, a one-size-fits-all approach is not practical. Despite that challenge, we were able to construct a solution to help you get into the iOS App Store without incurring huge development costs. Our default iOS app solution should deliver 90% of what most people need and for those that require additional development/customization, you can contact Sprout Venture to request a custom estimate.
How does support work?
Since this is an xCode project and purchasers are recommended to use an iOS developer we will not be providing any support. If you have any bug reports or feature updates to submit, Sprout Venture will be handling those directly.
