How To: Show Your App's License Page

Like most software, apps we create need to use some open source code to work. Simply put, this code is published by other developers and allows anyone to use it, as long as they follow the license that applies to the code. Examples for such licenses are the MIT or BSD license. Many licenses include clauses that require the license to be contained in any software (in this case your app) that uses the code the license applies to.

What does this mean for you?

Most of our app layouts include a settings screen, where the licenses can be viewed by users of your app. In that case, you don't need to do anything. Our basic layout, which displays just your website, can't do that though.

Showing the Licenses in the Basic Layout

Simply add a link to https://webtoapp.design/apps/show_licenses somewhere on your website (e.g. in your terms of service). Now when a user clicks this link in your app, it will show them the licenses.

Hi, I'm Jan. I have previously developed multiple apps for clients and my own projects, which have been downloaded thousands of times in the app stores. However, I decided I'd rather help out people with smaller budgets. That's why I created webtoapp.design, an affordable way to get an app if you already have a website.
