So you've decided to use Kumulos for your next app development project. Great! The following short video and guide will give you a quick overview of how to launch an app with Kumulos.
To start, register for an account at www.kumulos.com.
Once you have an account and are logged into your Kumulos console you can begin.
Creating a new App is very simple, just follow these steps...
Kumulos groups your Apps under Clients, usually the name of the company you are building the app for. This helps keep the console organized and, if you enable the Client Portal, allows your clients to be given read-only access to the analytics and reports for their apps. You can also share files and links with them.
In order to use the full power of Kumulos, integrate the Kumulos SDK into your application and store data via RPC. However, there is also a REST API that you can use as well.
Build your app using your language of choice.
Kumulos is free to use on up to 25 test devices for 60 days while your app is in development. After this, or when you are ready to submit your app to the store, you should switch your app into production mode to remove these device and time-based limits (and also allow you to create a staging environment for your app).
This should be done prior to store submission (so that your app is not rejected due to exceeding device or time-based usage limits during the approval process).
The first time you are ready to switch an app into production, you must create a new billing subscription.
Once your app is production mode, you can enable reporting. Reporting lets you generate weekly and monthly reports summarizing who is using your app, how engaged they are and how the app is responding. Once enabled, you can run as many reports as needed, annotating and customizing the content if required prior to delivery to your client.
