With Tradecast's mobile applications for iOS and Android, you can present your online video platform as a native application in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. These applications are based on your web-based video platform, which means you only need to upload your content once to make it available on the apps for iOS and Android and the web platform.
The mobile apps offer more possibilities to interact with your audience. For example, your mobile application allows viewers to submit their own content, which you can then use for interactive video formats. To learn more about the User-generated Content feature, check out this article.
Managing content for your iOS app
Managing content to appear in your iOS app works the same way as making content available on the web-based version of your video platform: by providing a video - via the Media Overview - with an up-to-date publication date, you'll also make that video appear in the on-demand menu of your iOS video platform app.
Note: it's not possible to make uploaded videos only available to play on your iOS app. However, it is possible to make videos available only to registered users on your iOS app or to viewers on your web platform who have purchased a product that contains one or more videos that are also visible in the iOS app.
Sending push notifications to app users
You can also send push notifications to viewers on your iOS and Android apps and make new content stand out even better. With apps for iOS and Android, your own video platform is even more visible and interactive. Do you want to know how to send a push notification for a newly added to your audience?
