App Store Requirements

The fine print. You know, the terms and service that nobody ever reads.

If you’re looking to get your app into the Apple App Store/Google Play Store, or already have one or more apps published you may or may not be surprised to know that both Apple and Google have outlined specific requirements for applications with user generated content (e.g. chat, messages, images/video, etc). It is important to become familiar with this criteria to better prepare your app for success.

The Standard

Apple and Google have a strong reputation for maintaining high standards for what they allow into their app stores. This standard extends to how you’re able to respond and manage content created by your users within your app.

Attempting to meet Apple and Google's requirements can be cumbersome and possibly cost prohibitive. We believe that developers should focus on their core competency. Filtering content is a detail that we don’t think you need to tackle on your own.

If your app displays user-generated content CleanSpeak can directly satisfy the requirements set forth by Apple and Google so it is no longer a concern of yours.
