There are several options available to help in making your event information accessible through the app store. Depending on the app package you have selected, this can be through the EventMobi app, or through a Custom Branded App.
Each event that you create will be be available in a web based form using a unique Event App URL, or through the EventMobi app which can be downloaded from the Apple App Store, or Google Play. Additionally, each event will be assigned a Smart Launch Page that makes promoting your event app, and directing attendees to your event information effective and easy.
Smart Launch Pages are designed to provide your attendees with the best app experience that their device can support. If the user has accessed the Smart Launch Page using an Apple device using iOS 9 and later, or an Android device using 5.0 and later they will be directed to the relevant app store to download the EventMobi app. Once the app has downloaded, your event information will launch automatically.
Users who have accessed the Smart Launch Page using a device that does not support the EventMobi app will instead be directed to the web based version, which can then be added as a bookmark to the device home screen.
The Smart Launch Page associated to your event will follow the format eventmobi.com/app/eventcode.
Custom Branded Apps
If you are looking to provide a fully branded experience to delivering your event information, then a Custom Branded App is the way to go. This option is available as an add-on to your app package, in addition to the web based version that is already included.
Custom Branded Apps allow you to host your event information from your own developer accounts in the Apple App and Google Play stores so that attendees can download them directly to their device. To help make this simple, you'll work directly with our App Release Coordinator to activate your developer accounts, generate the required files and get your app submitted!
What If I have Multiple Events?
If you are hosting multiple events throughout the year, then an Event Page will be provisioned to establish one central area by which attendees can access all of your event information. This prevents users from having to download multiple apps to their device, and will instead offer a single source to direct to each relevant app for your events.
Your Event Page can be accessed in several ways as well, depending on the app package you have selected or the device type your attendee is using. A web based version of your Event Page will be made available, regardless of your app package type, and will be accessed using a unique URL similar to that used for the web based version of your event app. In addition to this, users with iOS and Android devices will have access to your Event Page using the EventMobi app.
We can also submit a Multi-Event App to the app stores for you which will list all of your events in a single app under your developer accounts. You'll also work with our App Release Coordinator to get this up and running!
