Frequently Asked Questions
What can I create using appExpress?
You can start collections of content you like (text, Images or videos) and we'll make sure the collection can be enjoyed in any smartphone as a webapp or through the appExpress app (currently Android or iPhone only)
What are the costs for using appExpress?
It's free. Yes… that means absolutely zero.
What is a Post?
A post can be a quote you found interesting, an image you love, a riddle, a funny video or anything you'd like to communicate.
What is a Collection?
A collection is a group of posts, which usually -or hopefully :) -have a common theme such as jokes, a locaton, an author, etc. You can start collections displaying text, images or videos on different background. We are working on giving you more options.
How many Collections can I start?
Have fun, the more the merrier. We are not setting any limit.
How can I access my Collection once it is done?
You can access your webapp through a link that will be sent to you. The webapp is designed to work well on smart phones, tablets, laptops or desktops. You may also view it using the app for iPhone or Android . If the collection is popular we may build it as an iPhone, Android or BlackBerry app.
Which devices does appExpress support?
App Express is designed to work in all modern browsers (by modern we refer to a good html5 browser). If you have a smart phone and a connection you are pretty much done, although the experience may vary from phone to phone and browser to browser.
Why do I need to log in?
We need to identify you so you can add posts and manage your collections
I’m not registered, how I can login?
You can log in clicking in the top right button (yes the one in the black bar). You will need to use your facebook, google or yahoo account.
Why do you need my facebook, google or yahoo account to log in?
We don’t. We ask you to log in using a third party account so that you won’t need to memorize another username and password. The third party validates you (meaning we don’t see or check your password). We only get back your email addresss to identify you.
Managing your Collection
Can I edit my collection once it’s started?
Yes. You have to use the right side menu to manage your collections. To access it click the top right icon and log in.
How can I change the icon and the name of my collection?
In the right side menu select the collection to which you want to make changes. The dashboard will open, click the configuration icon
What are “Themes” and “Backgrounds”?
Themes and Backgrounds allow you to personalize your applications. The themes have different layouts & fonts, and a background is the image or sets of image used…well…as background.
Why do I see a different Style on the AppExpress app for iOS or Android
We have recently changed now Backgrounds and Themes work. We will be updating the iPhone and Android app soon.
How do suggestions from users work? Can I use them in my applications?
From time to time you may receive suggestions from users of your Collection. You can moderate them (add them, edit them or ignore them) as you please
Why can’t I find my app in the search results?
We may decide not to list your app. The reasons can be that we expect you to put more content (while 5 quotes may be entertaining to your friends, the general user will expect somewhat more), copyright related, or we may feel the content is inappropriate (see above). You may still access it using the link we sent you if it wasn't deleted. If you believe it should be listed then write to firstname.lastname@example.org asking for a new moderation
Can I see statistics on how many people are using my app?
Not at this time, but it is something we would like to develop.
How can I share my Collection?
Just share the link we sent you. Alternatively, if your collection is listed in AppExpress you can share this link for iPhone (http://itunes.apple.com/app/id443350763?mt=8) or this for Android (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.frenys.appexpress), and the name of the app.
Can you turn my collection into an iPhone or Android app? What if I pay?
We decide based on merit which apps to turn native. For us merit means interest from other users, that there is enough content (at least 50 posts) and proper meta data (Description, language, that sort of things). We value active contributors and of course you have to have the legal copyright for the content and it must be appropriate (as described above). If you feel your collection deserves to be native in the markets us at email@example.com. We don't accept payments, selection is based in merit.
Content and Terms of Service
What content is inappropriate?
While we would like to give freedom so users can express themselves, we believe that we have a responsibility. So no hate, defamatory, nudity, explicit sex, racist or sexist content please. Also be mindful of copyright and respect it. We have the right to delete collections if the content is inapropriate…and yes we will do it.
