Custom Branded Apps
For the purpose of developing and testing apps, we've used the Journey-branded container app from the Play Store / App Store thusfar.
JourneyApps also offers the ability to create "custom-branded" apps. This means that you can create versions of the native container app with your own name and icon, whilst under the hood it works exactly the same as the JourneyApps container from the Play Store / App Store.A hypothetical example of a custom-branded container is shown below:
You can link a custom-branded container to any JourneyApps application — there are no restrictions regarding which apps that you've built you can link it to. Each custom-branded JourneyApps container is completely separate on the mobile device and can have its own user enrollment and data. This means that you can have multiple custom-branded apps installed on the same device at the same time. If you are building a variety of demos for your customers, you can keep them all installed and enrolled on your demo device and switch between them as needed.
Limitations: Android versus iOS
Due to Android's open policies, it is extremely easy for us to create and for you to distribute custom-branded JourneyApps applications through the Play Store or through any other means (for example, making the APK install file available at a URL or distributing it through a Mobile Device Management system).
On iOS, however, custom-branded apps are subject to Apple's very strict guidelines. In order for us to build an app with your company's branding, Apple requires you to obtain your own Apple Developer account/certificate. Furthermore, the app would have to be distributed through the App Store (and therefore be subject to Apple's strict Review Guidelines), or be distributed through the Volume Purchase Program (VPP) or Enterprise Program. Please contact us for more information (see below).
How to Request Custom Branded Apps
Custom-branded apps currently have to be built manually by the JourneyApps team. Please contact Support, requesting that we build a custom-brandend JourneyApps container for you. There are no additional charges for this service.
Please include high-resolution versions of any logos or other imagery that will have to be featured in the app icon.
