Will the app be released immediately when I apply for Play Store uploads to the Swing2App?

We will upload the app to the Play Store on behalf of Swing2App.

It will not be released immediately, but will be reviewed by Google Apps.

Google app screening takes an average of one week.  Therefore, uploading does not mean that your app will be released immediately.

If there are no issues after the review, it will be released to the Store within 7 days after screening period.

How long does the Play Store app screening(review) takes?

The PlayStore screening period takes an average of one week. (within 7 days) If there are no issues with the review, it will be released immediately, but if the Play Store review is rejected, the release date may be delayed.

When uploading to the Store, you’ll see a message that the existing version or package is the same.

When uploading a newly updated app, make sure that it is different from the previously uploaded version, and upload the APK file created with the new version.

What should be done if the Play Store app is rejected?

If you have been denied a review of the Play Store app, you will need to check the email from Google for the reason for the rejection. 

There are many reasons for identity theft, copyright infringement, etc.

Make sure your app name isn’t similar to other apps that are already listed in the market, that the screenshot image isn’t copyrighted, and that you haven’t imported someone else’s website and used it. (Please check the problem and fix it)

Correct the problem in question and re-register again. 

Since the review has been rejected, you can re-register the contents by modifying them and making them available for release.

What should be done if a well registered app on the Play Store is deleted?

Unlike the App Store, the Play Store is not difficult to review.
So it’s not difficult to launch an app on the Play Store.

However, Play Store periodically re-examines the currently running app
In this case, the app that was initially registered may be suspended for policy violations or violations of regulations, as the app contents are examined in great detail.

An app that has been suspended can be re-registered after fixing the problematic item.

*However, the app may be deleted altogether.
In this case, you will not be able to reload your existing app, and you will need to re-register as a new app (change app name, change package).

What should be done if your Play Store account is deleted?

If you violate the regulations several times, Google will delete your account without notice.

** Deleted app accounts can resolve the issue by sending an appeal to Google.

However, if you are certain that the policy has been violated, it is difficult to restore it.

If the account is not restored, you can create a Google developer account again and register a new app. Since it is a new account, it cannot be linked with existing apps, and existing apps cannot be managed.

Therefore, you must keep Google’s policies and regulations in place to ensure that your account is not deleted.to not only delete your app, but also delete your account.
