How does the MVP free plan work?
NixCode provides access to the platform free forever to build out your mobile app. You have access to our platform, features, and functionality to finish building your app. You can use the Preview App button to get a free text link to your app for users to use the app via web. When you’re finished building and/or want to publish to iOS and Android, you will need to pay for one of our subscriptions that suits your needs. If you need any help picking the right subscription for your app, you can reach out to nixcodeapps.com/help.
Why do I have to pay every month/year?
There’s a myth out there that goes something like, “If I custom code an app, I can pay once and it will work forever.” What custom development shops won’t tell you though is that even if you custom code an app, there will still be monthly costs for upkeep, server space, maintenance, content changes, and more. With NixCode, however, we’ve not only built many of the features you’ll need right out of the box which reduces your upfront cost, but we also handle all of your servers, CDNs, push notification systems, user login/authentication, OS updates, design updates, the ability to change content, and more with one low monthly or yearly cost based on the features you need. It’s a pretty darn good deal if you ask us.
Can I host multiple apps under one subscription?
You can definitely have multiple apps under one account, however, each app will require its own subscription to be submitted to the App Store and Google Play and to function properly. If you have multiple apps, contact our support team inside your control panel (app.nixcode.io) by clicking the blue chat icon in the lower right corner to find out about multiple app discount options.
Is the security settings (with user tagging) included on my plan?
Security settings along with user tagging is an awesome feature that lets you determine who has access (and who doesn’t) to certain parts of your app. You can unlock both of these features, along with several others, by being on either the Pro or Enterprise plan.
Can I publish my app for free?
In order to get your app live on the App Store and Google Play, you will need to sign up for one of our paid plans. Not only will our publishing team handle the submissions for you, but our development team also handles a ton on the front end (the cool features you do see) and the back end (all of the necessary features you don’t see) for you.
What happens when I hit the limits max number of users, push notifications, sessions, etc. under my plan?
If you’re hitting your limits, that means you’re doing something right. We make it easy for you to be successful. If you do hit your max numbers, instead of halting your service, you will simply be automatically upgraded to the plan that will accommodate your needs based on your usage.
If I stop paying does my app get taken off the App Store and Google Play?
In order for app to maintain an active status with our servers and systems that power it and therefore function properly, you must maintain an active subscription. Not convinced? See the question “Why do I have to pay every month/year?” for more information on what your subscription goes toward.
Are there any additional costs besides my subscription plan?
In order to get your app live on the App Store and Google Play, both Apple and Google require that you have your own Apple and Google developer accounts, respectively. To date, Google is a one time fee of $25 and Apple is a yearly fee of $99 for a standard account or $299 for an enterprise account. If you are a non-profit organization, government entity, or educational institution, you may be eligible to get a free standard account.
Can I cancel anytime?
Yes. Our subscriptions are based on either monthly or, if you want a sweet discount, annual terms. Please note, however, if you cancel your service, your app will no longer function and will be removed from the App Store and Google Play per our terms.
