You or your clients may no longer require the services of BiznessApps, and prefer another company as an app builder. That is you wish to discontinue your service with BiznessApps and move/transfer your existing apps under your account to another App Builder.
This article explains why BiznessApps cannot transfer Android apps to another App Builder and provides information on how to transfer iOS apps.
- (applicable to iOS apps) Apple Developer Account
Our Android apps need to communicate directly with BiznessApps backend to function. Therefore, they cannot be transferred to another app-building service. The majority of the app-building services face a similar issue. Each app builder has its own API that communicates with its apps. This prevents the apps from functioning in another App Builder. Consequently, transferring apps to another builder makes them unusable.
In essence, for migrating to another app-builder, a completely new app needs to be created in the Google Play Store. The new app cannot be pushed as an update to the old app from the new App Builder. Once the new app is created and made available on the Play Store, users should download the newly developed app to their devices and remove the previous one.
Therefore, you'll need to upload the new app (created on another app-builder), then encourage users of your old app (the one on Bizness Apps) to migrate to that new latest version. Push notifications and in-app notices with links to the new Play Store listing are an excellent way to do this.
To transfer your app from BiznessApps to another App Builder, you need to transfer it to the receiver's Apple Developer account. For details on the process, please review this article on Transferring an App to Another Developer Account.
When the new app is ready and under the receiver's Apple Developer account, you need to give the Apple Developer account access to the new App Builder.
Finally, it should be noted that for updating the new app over the old one, the new App Builder should use the Bundle ID of the app to be transferred.
To find the Bundle ID, in the App Store Connect, navigate to My Apps > App Store > App Information. You can review the Bundle ID under the General Information section.
You will have successfully moved your iOS app from BiznessApps to another App Builder.
