Important Questions to Ask

MobileAppLoader’s Answers

Call the App developer, speak one-on-one with Customer Service, and ask the questions below.

Call us at (408) 844-4696. We are available to answer your questions 7 days a week.

Can the developer guarantee that Apple will approve your App and make it available in the iTunes App Store?

Your money will be wasted if your App does not appear in the iTunes App Store. It will be inaccessible to users.

HINT: If developers publish guidelines on how to get your App approved, it usually means they put the burden of approval on you. Shop for a different developer.

MobileAppLoader uploads your App to the App Stores (iTunes and Android) and offers a 100% money back guarantee. However, we’ve never had to use this guarantee because all of our Apps have been approved and uploaded.

To see our “Live Apps,” please click here.

Many App developers boast a large number of Apps, but this does not always reflect Apps successfully uploaded to App Stores. Always ask for a link to a developer’s Live Apps The link should be to an App Store site, not simply to the developer’s web site.

MobileAppLoader has uploaded nearly 1,000 Apps to the Apple iTunes and Android App Stores. You can easily preview them by clicking on “ Live Apps.”

Check to make sure that the developer’s name appears on the iTunes web site. See: How Strong is the Developer’s App Store Presence?

To view MobileAppLoader’s iTunes App Store presence, click on “ Live Apps.”

Does the developer target your business niche – or produce generic Apps?

CAUTION: Most of our competitors offer RSS/Website feed Apps. These Apps simply retrieve information from the Internet and will not work without an Internet connection. They are generally low-quality and unreliable.

MobileAppLoader has 20 types of business Apps designed to target different types of business needs. We have Apps with specific tools for Auto Dealerships, Hair Salons, Restaurants, and much more… See “Compare Features

Download Apps of our competitors:

  1. Does the App prompt you for “Notifications” when you open it?
  2. Check the App’s responsiveness
  3. Does every button work?
  4. Turn on “Airplane Mode.” Does the App still work? If not, the App will not work when your customer does not have an Internet connection.
  5. Will your customers use the features?

MobileAppLoader invites you to download our Apps.

  1. Our “gold” Apps feature Notifications, enabling you to send your customers instant news of sales, new merchandise and coupons.

Screen the Developer: Does the Developer have a Solid Presence in the iTunes App Store

How to check App developers on iTunes

iTunes is a great tool for finding out more about an App developer. Through March 2011, Apple allowed App developers to upload Apps to the App Store under the developer’s name. Today, however, each App is uploaded under the customer’s name. This means that you can check how many Apps each developer uploaded until March 2011.

To view Apps they developed after March 2011, you will need to ask developers for links to their Apps on the iTunes App Store. (Don’t settle for viewing these Apps on the developers’ web sites; you must know if they actually made it to the App Store.)

CHECK OUT APPS by MobileAppLoader: We’ve posted links to our Apps at Live Apps. (To view them in the App Store, simply click on the icons provided on that page.)

Here is a step-by-step explanation of the advice given above:

  1. Start iTunes on your PC or Mac.

  1. Click on the “iTunes Store” tab, located in the left sidebar.
  2. Type the developer’s name in the search box and hit “enter.”

  1. Click on any of the Apps that appear under that developer’s name.
  2. Click on the developer’s name.

  1. You will get a full list of iPhone Apps that the developer has published until March 2011.*
  2. You will also get a full list iPad Apps that developer has published until March 2011.*

* Through March 2011, Apple allowed App developers to upload Apps to the App Store under the developer’s name. Today, however, each App is uploaded under the customer’s name.
