What is a White-Label Native App?

What is a "white-label" native app?

A white-label native version of an AppSheet app is a native mobile application with your own branding that you can publish directly in an app store or distribute on your own. The installation and use of a white-label native app is similar to the millions of other apps in the app store. It is sometimes referred to as "whitelabel" or "white label".

What platforms are supported?

Both iOS and Android are supported for white-label native applications.

How does a white-label native app differ from my regular AppSheet app?

By default, your AppSheet app is hosted on a mobile device within an existing mobile "host" app. Since this mobile host app is already available in the app stores, you can create apps and use apps almost instantly.

When you create a white-label version of your app, it is effectively a copy of the AppSheet host app, but it has your branding and only runs your app. You take on the extra time and effort needed to publish the app in the relevant app store. However, you gain the discoverability of apps in the app store, and your users will benefit from the familiarity of the app installation process.

The app will continue to function in exactly the same way as before. Updates to the app definition will be picked up automatically as usual. Once in awhile, if AppSheet releases any significant new functionality that requires a new version of the white-label native app (for example, integration with push notifications), you will need to regenerate and republish your white-label native app.

White-Label app restrictions

Barcode scanning is not currently supported in white-labeled applications. Also, any apps submitted to the Apple App Store will be reviewed by Apple.  We do not and could not guarantee that an app will pass review or ever be available in the App Store.

The use of the white-label option requires one of the PRO subscription plans. At least one license of Publisher PRO or 10 licenses of Secured PRO (Per user). Please consult http://www.appsheet.com/pricing for more details.
