How long does it take to approve the free commercial version?

Upon entry, we will give you approval within the same day. (Up to a day) However, if you apply outside of business hours, on weekends or on public holidays, the approval time may be longer. We want to do it as soon as possible, but you’ll need to check and review the app yourself, so it’s the fastest way to get approval by applying during business hours.

Why is a review required when applying for the free commercial version?

Free apps are used for personal purposes and do not require any screening. However, since the free commercial version of the app is a service that can be freely produced and commercialized freely, the app production environment may get worse due to indiscriminate use of the app. These can be damaging not only to parties, but also to other Swing2App users. In addition, because it is a program provided by Swing2App, it is also intended to prevent problems such as malicious use or unauthorized use. As a result, screening is essential for all users to benefit from the service, and even if it takes some time, only apps that have been reviewed and approved are available. Thank you for your understanding.

Why are free commercial versions rejected?

Swing2App may decline or cancel app approval if:

1.Apps that include or promote online casinos, sports betting, gambling or pornography (basically the same policies as established in App Store and Play Store)

2. Apps that lack app functionality or design (apps that have poor image quality, such as icons, or apps that only create apps and have nothing in the menu)

3. Apps created only with basic settings in Swing2App (apps that the user does not do anything, and when they first enter the app production, they only apply for the content set)

4. Apps that are considered inappropriate by the Swing2App Operations Team (apps that are different from the description, or are violent or slanderous etc.)

5. Swing2App prototype – push, web view-created app

6. Apps created only with basic settings in swing (apps that the user does not do anything, and when they first enter the app production, they only apply for the content set)

7. Private apps
