Apple Releases New App Store Developer Tools Making It Easier To Create Links, QR Codes For Apps
Apple has released a new suite of tools that are designed to make it easier than ever for developers to create links, QR codes, and more that take users directly to their apps on the App Store.
The new tools are all available as part of the standard developer toolkit and allow developers to create everything from a short link to a new QR code that incorporates the app’s logo.
Take advantage of new marketing resources to promote your apps around the world. You can now generate short links or embeddable code that lead to your App Store product page and display your app icon, a QR code, or an App Store badge. Download localized App Store badges, your app icon, and more.
Developers simply need to enter the URL for their app, or search for it, and then have the tool do whatever they want it to do.
The results can then be shared anywhere, including social media or online. They can also be tired into things like App Clips that were introduced with the arrival of iOS 14.
While the general public won’t be using these tools, it’s another sign that Apple is trying to make good with a developer community that is perhaps more disenfranchised now than ever before. The tool is available here at tools.applemediaservices.com/app-store/.
