Once you’ve decided to publish your app, you need to prepare your app store listing. It is a vital step in the customer journey with JMango360, so let’s take a look at this section on Alphonso. 
  1. App listing: Before submitting a publish request, you are required to complete the App Store information, including the Apple and Google developer names, graphics, description, app categories, and business information. JMango360 will publish your app to the app stores on your behalf.
