We hope you find this knowledge base useful and enjoy using Appdome!
ContextTM is an Appdome service allowing a user to customize apps with a custom icon, app name, and private URL.
Using Appdome, there are no development or coding prerequisites. For example, there is no Appdome SDK, libraries, or plug-ins to implement. Likewise, there are no required infrastructure changes and no dependency on the original apps icon, language or App layout inside the app. The Appdome technology implements Context adaptations, adds frameworks, and more to the app automatically, with no manual development work at all.
The App customization divides into three sub-categories:
Using Appdome, users can change the app’s icon and name, as if it was natively coded to the app. Appdome’s Context is compatible with mobile apps built in any development environment including Native Android and iOS apps, hybrid apps, and non-native apps built-in Xamarin, Cordova, and React Native, Ionic and more. This streamlines implementations, cuts development work, and ensures a guaranteed and consistent customization of any mobile app.
Once you have successfully secured an app on Appdome, follow these step-by-step instructions to customize the secured mobile app:
