Creating the App Directory listing
In the Apps Directory, all apps have their own page. This page is an excellent way to drive attention and engagement to your app, so it's worth taking the time to craft compelling copy and graphics that clearly communicate the app's benefits.
You can customize the content that appears on your app's page via the app's Details page in the Developer Portal. This must be done before submitting your app for review. Once your app has been approved for release, you can make further changes by creating a new version of it.
