Application Registration Q&A

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

Submitting an application means registering it to be published. For information on how to register your application, see Registering Applications guide. For information on how to publish your application, see the Distributing Applications guide.

#publication #register

After the application is submitted, 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 the Application Publication Process guide.

#certification #publication #register

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

#icon #image #file name #size #screenshot

You can define different titles and application descriptions for different languages. In the "Title/Description" menu, select the applicable languages and define the application title and description for each language.

Unlike the titles and application descriptions, it is not possible to define different icons and screenshots for different languages or countries.

For more information, see Entering Application Information.

#description #icon #language #localization #name #screenshot #title #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 Distributing Applications guide.

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

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

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 Distributing Applications guide.

#model group #update #version #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.

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

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.

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

In the "Captions" page, 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.

#caption #closed captioning #subtitle #test information

Yes. You must attach the App UI description file created using the provided template on the "Verification Info" menu. You can also include additional attachments, such as a demonstration video.

#app ui description #application ui description #attachment #demo video #video

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 guide 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.

#age limit #age rating #content policy #rating certificate #rule #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.

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

Submission of the Samsung Legacy Platform version is no longer supported. Only the Tizen version can be submitted.

#samsung legacy platform #submit #update #version up

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

#release date #time zone

Make sure you are using a TV from the model groups and the service country you defined when you registered the application in the Seller Office.

To add model groups, add a model group while requesting a new release. For more information, see the Requesting New Release guide.

To add service countries, contact your local Content Manager first and then add them from "Service Country/Region". At this point you must enter a reason for the change and the change is deployed after Samsung reviews the reason. For more information, see the Setting Service Country guide.
