Why Apps Get Rejected?

Here is a perception that getting a mobile application on a major app store is as easy as having a great idea and building an app. However, it’s not as simple as the app stores make it seem. There are many things you have to take into consideration when trying to get your app published. In this article, we’ll look at why apps get rejected from Apple and Google Play

Make sure you understand what Apple and Google want

In the App Store and on Google Play, apps get rejected for a variety of reasons. Some of those reasons are legitimate, and some are not. Many developers don’t understand the criteria Apple and Google use to evaluate apps.

If you want to avoid getting rejected, it is important that you do. If your app gets rejected, it can be a huge setback. It can take weeks or months for your app to get approved after you have fixed all the problems that caused its rejection in the first place. And if you have a bug-fix update waiting in the wings, Apple or Google may refuse to accept it until you fix all your other bugs as well!

We received a rejection recently from Apple, and one from Google Play. Both rejections were based on technicalities, which suggests they were not trying to be deliberately difficult. If we had read Apple’s updated guidelines carefully they make sense; if we had been more careful we would have seen the problems they pointed out before submitting my app.

Avoid these 6 common mistakes

By now you have probably submitted your app to Apple or Google Play. Now, it is in their hands. No matter how many times you have done this, it is still nerve-racking.

To make matters worse, you are probably an engineer or designer, not a marketer or publicist. You are even less likely to know what the reviewers are looking for. Because there aren’t many resources out there that tell you specifically what the reviewers are looking for, I wanted to take some time to list some of the biggest mistakes that I see applications making.

Here are six of the most common mistakes that kill apps:

1. No Privacy Policy

2. No Support URL

3. Poor Graphics

4. Hard-to-Read Fonts

5. Hard-to-Use Navigation

6. No CTA Buttons

How to avoid having your app rejected and therefore losing money.

The problem is that Apple has very high standards. Your app has to be easy to use, elegant, fun, innovative, etc. The only way to know if your app is good enough is to have it reviewed by Apple. This can be stressful because Apple’s reviewers are harsh. They are looking for reasons not to accept an app, so they are likely to find flaws you would have overlooked. But don’t despair! Here are some tricks to help you get through the review process unscathed:

1. Have a great icon The icon is the first thing people will see when they look at your app in the store, so it has to be very attractive and distinctive. Your icon should give your users a sense of what the app does and make them want to click on it.

2. Have great screenshots Your screenshots (the images that show up in the App Store) should make people want to download it immediately. They should be beautifully designed and professionally done—if you can afford it, hire a pro! Don’t just slap up any old screenshot—it will only hurt you in the eyes of reviewers.

3. Have a great description The description needs to be short but descriptive; just like headlines on news sites, descriptions need
