  • What exactly is included with the Mobile add-on module available for $199?

    I'm a current vBulletin CMS 4 customer and have been a long-time supporter.
    I'm trying to understand exactly what I can expect when purchasing the vBulletin Mobile application for $199.

    Can someone from vBulletin please be specific in explaining what would happen once one pays the add-on fee of $199?
    For example, is there an XCODE project to download, or do you guys compile the binary app and submit to iTunes?

    I want to be sure that I'm able to submit the app for approval under my account with Apple while maintaining little or no effort on the development side.

    For $199, as a vBulletin 4 customer you will unlock the "mobile publisher" service. You will be able to customize and build 2 applications, Android and iTunes. The iTunes app will need to be re-signed using a Mac and following a few very detailed instructions. Once this is complete you will be able to upload your iPhone app. Android can be uploaded right away. If you do not have an app - a few members on this board have been offering full services to help with the iTunes submissions. Please note that there are separate fees associated with the iTunes and Andoid Marketplace accounts.

      You get two branded applications, which can be customized to a degree for 199 dollars.

      You're provided (after customizing) an android apk (ready to go), and an ios app that needs to be signed by you and compiled by you in xcode to submit to the store.

      We do not normally submit anything on your behalf.

        are there any samples of apps live in the iTunes store that anyone can share that use the vBulletin Mobile capabilities?
        I want to visualize what this looks like to the end user.

          Download the 'vBulletin' app to see for yourself.

            I have the vBulletin app. I'm more interested to see how the app looks for a community branded differently.
            I'm curious to see how tweakable the UI is.
