SellanApp relaunches its Service

Repositions to become a Online App Publishing Company

29 JANUARY 2014, AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS
Summary
SellanApp executed a redo of almost every part of its Service. Nothings has been left untouched. A new site with new functionality and services is now live to serve its community of App Lovers and Developers.

From ‚only’ a crowd-funding platform for Apps SellanApp is transforming to a Online App Publishing Company which offers integrated solutions for the design, (crowd)funding, development, publishing and promotion of iOS apps.

"Start comparing us with a traditional book publishing company. If you know how to write and you have good story to tell, a book publisher will help you with editorial guidance, production funding, distribution, promotion and more to make you successful as a (international) acknowledged writer.

Likewise, if you have an App Idea and know how to shape it using our iPad App, we are here to refine your design and have the development and promotion funded by an involved community. We also publish and maintain your App in the App store, and have your App promoted and sold worldwide.", says Aernoud Dekker, CEO of SellanApp.


Major changes to its platform include:

New Website

The first thing you’ll notice is our brand new Look & Feel. We did a complete rebuild of our site, refactored all code for more performance and maintainability while we introduced a whole now ‚look’.

Have a look around and tell us what you think.

Promotion Budget

From now on, one third of all pledges will be allocated for the promotion of the App once it has hit the App Store. Of this budget, one third is forwarded to the Producer right after the App Idea has been selected by a Developer.

This means that Producers immediately will be paid out after a successful campaign to cover any up-front expenses and/or to invest in the promotion of the App.

You can monitor the available budgets any time using the ‚Show Budgets’ link on the App Profile.

Visit our new How it Works to find out more.

Mockups

Everyone will be able to view the Mockup created on our iPad App. The Mockup will now be a very important part to show the world what your App Idea is all about.

Your Mockup also provides detailed information for Developers as they will be able to download your Mockup. This will give them acces to all your graphics and user interaction details, including all ‚notes’ you can now add to every element you have designed.

Learn more about Mockups by visiting How it Works and our Tutorials.

Resubmit App Ideas

When your App Idea was not selected, or was withdrawn by you, you can now resubmit your App Idea from the Dashboard via the ‚Duplicate’ button. The original App Idea will remain visible for your pledgers.

New iPad App

A new version of our iPad App is available in the App Store which now supports the creation of Mockups for all current iOS devices, adds more extended iOS7 support and technology that makes it possible to play your Mockup on the web among many other small and big improvements.

Learn to create great Mockups by visiting our new Tutorials.

Test Releases

We implemented a new way to distribute and track test-releases of your App. Developers can now use SellanApp to upload test-releases, which we will then distribute using Test-flight.

Since SellanApp can now monitor all releases we can better track progress.

Better Help

We discontinued the SellanApp Academy and Get Satisfaction to focus more on context sensitive help on our site and in our app. We have a brand new and updated FAQ to help you out, while we have our contact page now available for all your questions and suggestions.


Much more will be introduced the next months to support our ambition to become the largest App Publisher out here. We can get there because we are not a single studio, but connect App Lovers and Developers world wide to make App Ideas Happen!
