Application Registration

The following questions are related to registering applications in the Samsung Apps TV Seller Office.

To avoid this error, the application title for the default language must be the same as the title defined in the application configuration file, within the name element.

   #application title    #config xml    #default language    #configuration    #error

Submitting an application means registering it to be published. For information on how to register your application, see Application Registration.

   #register    #publication

After the application is registered, it proceeds to QA certification. You are notified about the certification result by email. If the application passes certification without defects, it is published. Otherwise, you must resolve the defects and submit a new version. For more information, see Application Certification.

   #register    #certification    #publication

No. Applications must be tested and certified before they can be published. However, if your application has been tested and it has no critical defects, you can select "Quick Release" to release it with non-critical defects.

   #quick release    #critical defect    #certification    #publication

For information on the size, format, and file name requirements for application icons and screenshots, see App Icons and Screenshots.

   #icon    #screenshot    #size    #file name    #image

You can define different titles and application descriptions for different languages. When you register your application, in the Basic Information page, select the applicable languages and define the application title and description for each language.

Note The application title for the default language must be the same as the title defined in the application configuration file, within the name element.

It is not possible to define different icons and screenshots for different languages or countries.

For more information, see Basic Information.

   #title    #description    #icon    #screenshot    #language    #name    #localization    #translation

The application name is used to identify an application in the Seller Office. It can be different from the application title, which is shown on Samsung Apps TV.

You can support multiple model groups under the same application name. For more information on defining the target model groups, see Test Information.

If you want to manage your application for specific model groups under a separate application name, create a "1:1 Q&A" support ticket with a detailed request, to be reviewed by the App Management team.

   #application name    #application id    #model group    #app name    #app id

Yes. Submit an application update for each application version, making sure you select the applicable model groups for each one. Each application version goes through the certification process separately. For more information on defining the target model groups, see Test Information.

   #update    #version    #model group    #version up

The application name is used to identify an application in the Seller Office, so it is unique to your application, and cannot be used by others. However, multiple applications can use the same application title, which is shown on Samsung Apps TV.

   #application name    #application title    #unique    #app name    #app title

The Tizen application ID is located in your application package root directory, in the "config.xml" file. The application ID is the id attribute within the tizen:application element.

   #application id    #tizen    #config xml    #configuration    #app id

In the "Captions" section, define the content to use for testing the captioning features in your application. Enter the content title (including the episode number, if applicable) and where to find the content in the application.

   #test information    #caption    #closed captioning    #subtitle

Yes. Even if you do not implement Samsung Checkout, if your application supports any payment methods, you must check the "Billing" checkbox.

   #billing    #samsung checkout    #test information    #payment    #in app purchase

Yes. When registering your application, on the Test Information page, you must attach an application UI description, created using the provided template. You can also include additional attachments, such as a demonstration video. Make sure it is mentioned in the application UI description file and in the "Note to Tester" field.

Note You cannot use a demonstration video exclusively to provide any required registration details. The video can only function as additional information. You must still separately provide all the information needed for the QA certification team to fully verify all application features. If a feature cannot be tested, it causes application certification to fail with critical defects.

   #application ui description    #attachment    #video    #demo video

You can define as many tags as you want, separated by commas. The "Tags" field has a 4000-character limit.

   #application information    #tag    #app info

When you submit your application, you must define the age groups for whom the application content is appropriate. Applications that do not follow the age rating guidelines cannot be published.

Your application must not contain violent or pornographic content, or abusive language. Applications that violate the content policy can be terminated.

To publish your application in Brazil or Korea, you must provide an age rating certificate.

Note Applications with an 18+ age rating cannot be published in Korea, Saudi Arabia, or the United Arab Emirates. Local cultural restrictions can also prevent applications from being published in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

   #age rating    #content policy    #rating certificate    #rule    #age limit    #young audience

When you register your application, if your application collects any user data, you must provide a URL to your privacy policy document.

The privacy policy must be written in English. If the application is to be published in Korea, you must provide it in both English and Korean.

   #privacy policy    #language    #korean    #user data    #translation

To add a Samsung Legacy Platform version to your Tizen application, for TV models 2014 and older:

Create and submit the Tizen application.

In the Seller Office, on the App Information page, select "Version Up > Legacy Platform (zip Package)".

Submit the Samsung Legacy Platform version through the application update process.

Note To submit an application for TV models more than 5 years old, you must obtain permission from your local Content Manager.

If you have a Samsung Legacy Platform application published on 2015 TV models, and you update it by migrating the application to Tizen, you can no longer update the Samsung Legacy Platform version.

   #samsung legacy platform    #submit    #update    #version up

The release date is based on US Pacific Standard Time (PST).
