Setting Up Your App Stores for Amego

Introduction & Background

Amego offers branded apps for companies to publish under their own app store accounts. Your branded icon is on the user’s device and you have total control over the app’s appearance and behavior: it’s a representation of your brand on the attendee’s device. Moreover, the app can be used year round to support your whole event portfolio, adding efficiency for how your event team can bring events online.

Apple and Google app stores require that apps like Amego are not published byAmego, but by the company they’re representing: you! In fact, if anyone but you tried to publish your app it would be flagged for ‘impersonation’. This is a protection for you and your brand - you would not want random apps being created that seem to imply they are yours.

For that reason, Amego cannot publish your event apps in the Amego store. Each Amego customer needs to provide a way to help Amego publish your app on your app store. We provide 3 methods in this document, in order of ease and convenience. Please review these options and once we’ve heard from you, we will work with your team to get the apps set up immediately. Once initially set up, subsequent steps are greatly reduced.

Don’t have any app store presence yet? For more information on how to establish your app store presence, see Appendix A at the end of this document for more information.

Understanding Amego’s Role

Amego will be the app administrator in both app stores. You grant access to our user account – – using the instructions below, one time. With these instructions and permissions, Amego will be able to administer your published app moving forward.

Amego manages your app store listing, screenshots, and distributes new releases on your behalf. In some cases, Amego may need your input for branding decisions, marketing copy, etc., and Amego will be responsible for communicating with any app store personnel. Amego does not respond to app store reviews on your behalf.

How We Publish Apps

Amego sets up your initial app store presence with a combination of manual and automatic activities. Items that require app store releases include:

  • New Amego functionality, which is rolled out on a regular basis
  • Changes to your app icon or app icon label
  • Changes to fonts inside your app
  • Some changes to your app store listing

Almost every other element of your app is dynamically updated through the AmegoCMS of your app. After your app’s initial release, every submission is automated. Our typical screenshots* included are:

  • Home
  • Agenda
  • Library
  • Session Detail
*Changes to screenshots require new app builds.

Restricting Our Access

Once your apps are initially set up, you can edit our user record and remove any access to apps other than the Amego app, where we will need to remain an app manager indefinitely.

If your organization prohibits third parties from accessing your app stores, the process becomes much more complicated. Please refer to Appendix B - manual app setup.
