Creating an App that Matches Your Brand

Jun 28, 2018 3:17:04 PM / by Alec Boyd

Sandbox Commerce's App Builder offers a robust set of tools that make our apps feel like a natural extension of your brand.

A blank canvas can be a daunting place to start, but we try to make it as easy as possible for you to customize your app and have it look great on iOS and Android. We'll outline all the steps and show you how easy it is!

  1. Upload Logos: Our image uploader makes it easy for you to upload all of your brand's logos. There are only two different logo sizes we require to make your app look fabulous. First, we'll need a rectangular 3:2 logo. This will live in the top nav bar of your app and a couple other menus. Secondly, you'll need to supply a square favicon logo. This will live on your splash screen and most importantly -- your app icon.
  2. Brand Colors: We did our best to simplify all color options down to just a few choices. You'll have to pick a background, button and a few text colors for your app. This can all be easily done with copy and pasting a hexcode or using or color picker.
  3. Adding Items & Categories: When I build an app for a customer, the first thing I do is see what items and categories are featured on their website's homepage. On our App Builder Homepage, you can easily drag-and-drop the order of different selections and items. This makes it easy to adjust for a seasonal change or emphasize a flash sale.

Striking the balance between customization and simplicity is a constant balancing act. The Sandbox App Builder walks the tightrope and easily let's e-commerce stores publish apps that fit their brand.
