Same app in multiple catergories?


  • Hi Randy,

    It is only possible to publish an app in one category at a time. If you determine your app is better fit in a different category, you can submit an update and change which category it is published in. That being said, you should also review section 6.13 of the App certification requirements:

    6.13 The metadata and other materials you provide to describe your app must accurately and clearly reflect the source, function and features of your app

    The screenshots, app name, developer name, tile, category, and app description you provide with your app should make it easy for a user to understand the functions, features, and any important limitations of your app. If your app contains content or features restricted to certain geographies or certain hardware, or has other important limitations, they should be clearly described. You should not represent your app to be from a company, government body, or other entity if you do not have permission to make that representation.

    Thanks for the post!
