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.
Integrate an SDK into your mobile app:
In order to exploit the full power of Kumulos, integrate an SDK into your mobile application. However, you can also access and manipulate data server-side, via REST, PHP or using our JSON RPC Interface from any HTTP Client
Kumulos features are free to use on up to 25 test devices for up to 30 days while your app is in development. After this, you must either switch features off or add features to your subscription to remove these device and time-based limits (and also allow you to create a staging environment for your app).
To add a feature to your subscription, click
Buy. You will be asked to confirm that you wish to add the feature to your subscription.
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).
If this is the first feature you have bought, you will need to create a billing subscription by adding payment card details.
Next, 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.
