Step 1 - Create an account
Sign up for a new Oomph Publishing account.
Step 2 - Sign up for the Apple iOS Developer Program
If you haven't already done so, you will need to sign up for the Apple iOS Developer Program.
Once your Developer account is approved you will need to provide your certificates, and provisioning profiles. Please see here for more details.
Step 3 - Create your application
Firstly, create a new, blank app application in the Oomph Publishing Center.
Secondly, follow these instructions to provision your application in iTunes.
If you are a full service customer, Oomph will create your app and provide you with both a 'tester' .ipa file, and the application that you can upload to Apple for review. See here for instructions on how to upload your branded applications to Apple.
If you are an online licensee, you can configure your app yourself, and upload it to iTunes Connect.
Note: It can take Apple between 2-6 weeks to approve new apps (and they require at least 10 pages on sample content for review) - unfortunately this is outside of our control.
Step 4 - Create your content
Read the Design Guide to see how to create Oomph content
If you get stuck, contact our Support Team for help, we will get back to you within 48 hours.
Step 5 - Publish!
Sign into your account and upload your content (this is also where you would schedule a publishing date, send push notifications or access reports, your account will is a dashboard for your apps). Your uploaded content will be downloadable from your application as soon as you hit publish.
Note. As per the above, it is important to have indicative content created & uploaded into Publish before submitting your app for review with Apple, otherwise it may be rejected.
