Sharing your app can be a bit tricky sometimes. Especially in the beginning, when your new app is usually hard to find via the app stores' search functions, it's best to give users a direct link to where they can download the app. That's also a bit inconvenient though because you have multiple different links: One link for the Apple App Store, one for the Google Play Store and maybe even more app stores.
The solution? The app landing page!
Your app landing page is a site that has links to your app's Apple App Store and Google Play Store listing. It also has some useful options for sharing your app via e-mail, WhatsApp and more.
The page is branded with your app name, icon and colors. We use the card colors from your app's "Other Screen" settings.As an example, here's the landing page for the webtoapp.design app.
This is what the link will look like when shared on social media (of course with your app name and app icon):
You can either use the link that links directly to the app landing page, or you can use a link that tries to immediately redirect the user to the correct app store.
In the case of the redirecting link, it recognizes the user's device to pick the correct app store. So Android devices will be redirected to the Google Play Store, while iOS devices will be sent to the Apple App Store. Other devices (such as Windows computers) will be sent to the app landing page, like with the other link.
If you promote your app on your website (e.g. by having a section asking the user to download your app), we can hide that prompt in your app. That's usually a good choice because app users don't need to be asked to download the app anymore and Apple doesn't like it if you mention your Android app or the Google Play Store.

Differences between Android and iOS Apps
In this article we discuss the benefits Android apps have over iOS apps and in which case an iOS app for your website is the better option.
Hi, I'm Jan! I created webtoapp.design in 2019 while studying computer science in university. A lot has changed since then - not only have I graduated, but it's also no longer just me running webtoapp.design. We've grown to a global, fully remote team and have gathered lots of experience around app development and app publishing. We've created and published hundreds of apps in the app stores, where they've been downloaded hundreds of thousands of times.
