How to Choose an App Name?

Before building the app, add basic information. These are known as the "Settings".

Begin by adding the "App Name". This is the name of the app that will be displayed in the app stores.

App Names should be short and descriptive as it is often what people will search to find the app.

It is often good practice to include the year of the conference - E.g. "X-CD 2017"

  2. Click Mobile App Management in the left side menu
  3. If there is more than one app defined, select the app from the dropdown menu

  7. Scroll down and Click Update Settings button to save the changes
