The publication home page is the control center for that publication. It is the main page for locating all actions that can be performed to a publication/app. In the first screenshot below you can see the regular and most common actions performed on a publication.
Note. Features in orange are Admin Only actions and can not be seen by a regular user. If you are an account owner or manage the apps of several organisations you will see these features, regular users will not.
The screenshot below displays the second half of the publication home page. As you can see here there is the list of all the previous issue, sorted by most recent first. The older the issue is the smaller the thumbnail appears, this is just to emphasis the latest issues and keep the webpage clean and short.
This is part of the main navigation and allows you to quickly jump back to the main page etc.
2. Image thumbnail
This image is the latest issues cover image. This will change each time a new issue is uploaded.
3. Application name
This is the App Store application name - it is the longer name supplied, and may differ from the name of the app on the iPads home screen.

The URL is generated by Apple when the application is created in iTunes Connect. We then create a bit.ly link for tracking, and to appear shortened in social sharing links etc

The number here denotes the highest version of Oomph this publication is live with. In this case it is Oomph 14. Each time an update to the app is released to the store, this value must be updated to reflect the new state of the app.
