Installation

Install the appropriate SDK to connect your app with PhraseApp:

Distributions

Get started with PhraseApp Over the Air by creating your first distribution. Within a distribution you can define the target platforms (i.e. iOS, Android). You can have multiple distributions but typically you will have one distribution per project. To create a distribution, simply visit the Integrations section via the blue navigation bar at the top of your account dashboard. You can now see that Over the Air (OTA) is listed as the second entry of the entire integrations list. Simply click on Configure to access the OTA overview page. If you haven't created a distribution yet, this would look something like this.

Here you can create your distributions and later access and manage each of them. Click Create Distribution and enter the required information.

Clicking on Save will automatically lead you to the overview page of this distribution, where you can find the respective Distribution ID as well as development and production secret. Use the distribution ID and the specific environment secret to address a distribution within the SDK.

Releases

To update translations, simply create a new release within the distribution. This will export the current state of your project and make it available to the connected clients. For each release you can specify:

  • Environment: Decide whether the release is for development only or should be pushed to production
  • Version range: Define which version of your app should receive the update
  • Platform: Publish an update to either Android, iOS or both
