It's your choice. Your application will be published on the AppStore using your own Apple account, you can then decice to distribute it freely or to set a price for it.
Do I need to submit my application on the AppStore by myself?
It's your choice. You need to create your Apple account in order to submit your application (79 € / year). You can then decide to submit your app by yourself and in that case, we will send you all the required files. Or you can give access to your account to our team and we will take care of the submission. In both cases, we will guide and help you during the whole process.

Of course. You manage your content using our CMS and each modification is directly reflected in your application.

Are my data safe?
The access to your account and to your data is always done through an encrypted connection (SSL). Your data and your photos are daily backuped on Amazon S3.
Who will manage my data?
You are the only master on board. You, or someone you will give access to, will manage the whole content displayed by your applications.
Can I customize the design of my application?
For now, you cannot customize the design from the admin panel but we are planning to develop this functionality. You can however order a custom design to MobileResto, we will create the design and integrate it to your application.
Can I use my own custom domain to access my website and his mobile version?
