Important Note

While going through these Publishing articles and following the steps to upload your app, please note that the order of operations matters. So  DO NOT skip ahead. Only advance to the next step once you've completed all the previous requirements in these articles.


Publishing your app for the first time is a large task, so we've split the walkthrough into 3 steps linked below:


Step 1: Creating Your Developer Accounts

This is the setup of your Expo account, and your Apple and Google Developer Accounts.

We recommend doing this process sooner than later, as it can take a while for your accounts to get set up and approved.


Step 2: Creating Your App Build

This step will walk you through submitting your app build in 22apps to create and download the files of your apps.

We recommend starting this step once your app is fully designed, tested, and ready to publish to Apple’s App Store and the Google Play Store.


Step 3: Uploading to Apple and Google

This is the last step in uploading to Apple and Google. This step will take you through uploading your app files to Apple and Google. You will also get to set up your app's information in the app stores, and finally, submit your app.

We recommend doing this anytime after you've downloaded your app files. Note that after submitting, your apps will take at least a couple days to be reviewed by Apple and Google.
