The final step of developing an app is bringing it to light. There’s no better way to incite downloads than publishing it on an official store, like the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store. They both add layers of protection that provide users with security. Users don’t think twice before downloading an app from both official stores. That’s why we created this guide to show you how to publish an app on the Google Play Store and the App Store if you’re using the nandbox app builder and the store verification account feature.

First: Create a Developer Account

Before you start publishing your app, you must have a developer account. If it’s the first app you want to publish, head to Google Play Console to create a developer’s account for the Android version. The iOS version requires an account that you can create at Apple’s developer portal. In both cases, you need to pay a one-time fee. Upon registration, you enter the required information, like your developer name and contact information.

Setting the Store Verification Account

From here on, the process can get a bit complicated, which is why nandbox created the store verification account feature. In the app builder, you can find the store verification account option in the app settings menu under the signup and verification section. Then you put in the information needed to verify your accounts and set up a demo account. The demo account serves one purpose: to help you publish your app on the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store. To help nandbox users further, a demo account allows you to release one Android app and one iOS app for free.

Building Your App Version

After setting up your demo account, you open the build menu to build a version of your app. First, you select your app’s operating system. Afterward, you will get a drop-down menu with all the required information to fill out. Note that when you’re uploading the iOS version, more configuration is necessary.

Before submitting your app to the Play Store or App Store, we recommend testing it firsthand. That way, you’ll be able to see how it operates in real-time. Using the nandbox app builder, you can generate an APK of the Android version and install it on your device. Once you decide that your app is tested and ready for publishing, release it in bundle format for the Google Play Store. Correspondingly, release the iOS version of your app on TestFlight. After uploading, all you have to do is wait for approval by store verifiers. Before starting the publishing process, we recommend checking the guidelines for publishing apps on each official store.

It can be a hassle to learn how to publish an app on the Google Play Store or the App Store. You have many steps to take, all while worrying if your application is approved for publication or not. The demo store verification account you create with nandbox facilitates part of the process. You can use it to upload and enlist your app for review with ease. Additionally, it doesn’t cost extra to upload both the Android and iOS versions of the first app you create. Sign up now to try out this feature and more on nandbox.
