What are iPhone and Android applications?
An iPhone application is a small computer program that runs on the iPhone. The iPhone can be a powerful marketing platform for you and your business and HipChime Apps helps you take full advantage of it. An Android application is similar but designed to be downloaded onto Android phones.
How do I register as an Apple Developer?
You won't need to. HipChime Apps is registered as a developer in the the Android and Apple App stores and we'll publish your app for you. The cost to submit an app to the Google Play Store is $25 annually and the Apple App Store charges $99 annually. But don't worry, when we submit your apps on our developer account those fees have already been paid... by us.
How long does it take to get a mobile application?
HipChime can submit your iPhone app to the iTunes App Store and Android Market within 48 hours, pending all required information has been received. iPhone apps may require up to 2-3 weeks for approval.
How does the check in coupon system work?
When a customer checks in at a business’s location, they will receive a reward coupon for the 5th, 50th, 100th and even 1000th check in. This coupon system can be completely customized by the business and can be edited in real time via our client’s panel. These coupons will appear as images on the application and when used, they will be deleted with a push of a button on the user’s phone by the business to ensure a coupon is not used multiple times. This also removes the need for additional equipment to verify the coupon such as barcode scanners or unique coupon codes, allowing a very low start up cost for businesses. This system is extremely simple, cost efficient, and very effective for small businesses to build up brand-loyalty with their customers.
How can you build brand loyalty with HipChime Apps?
HipChime Apps is the ideal solution for any small businesses looking to create brand loyalty and frequent buyers. We do so by providing small businesses with a mobile application that rewards customers for frequent visits through coupon rewards that are unlocked using the check in coupon system.

What happens if the Google Play Store or Apple IOS App Store rejects my Android or iPhone application?
Nearly all apps are approved by Google and usually within just a few hours. The Apple IOS Store is considerally more subjective in their approval process. Each app is reviewed and the procees could take days or even weeks. HipChime works very hard to ensure all applications are accepted and our experience has taught us what will get an app approved quickly. If we are submitting, we will do everything possible to get your application accepted to the Apple IOS App Store. We should be able to tell you up front whether your app is likely to be accepted to the Apple IOS App Store.
