Back in July 2020, we announced our plans to discontinue branded One-Event apps. As of September 2020, we no longer accept new One-Event app submissions, and as of mid-April 2021, we disabled the ability to add new One-Event apps to your Attendify Dashboard:
Why discontinue One-Event apps?
One-Event apps were designed years ago at a time when the industry looked very different and branded apps were the preferred format. Apple App Store policy change of late 2017-2018 made it very difficult to publish and maintain One-Event apps, but we continued to provide them to help customers navigate the transition.
Now, in a post-COVID environment, we're embarking upon making Attendify the best engagement platform to help manage virtual, hybrid, and real-live events. To achieve that mission we need to look ahead and focus on our branded Multi-Event app, Attendify app, and our Virtual Experience. Rest assured that mobile is more important to our platform than ever, but the one-event app format is no longer sustainable.
What replaces One-Event apps?
Anyone looking to have a fully branded event app will only benefit from switching to the Multi-Event app. The Multi-Event app provides the same experience inside of a fully branded event container while offering more features and instant event publication. You can also renew the same Multi-Event app every year.

Alternatively, you can always choose to publish your event within the Attendify App. This option also has its branding options inside and offers instant event publication without a need to obtain your own Apple Developer account.
