Convert your Apple Developer Program from Individual to Organization

If you’ve incorporated your business, then Apple will require you to register as a Corporation to have your app published on the App Store. If you submit your app under an Individual account in your name, it will be rejected.

You must enroll as an organization if your company is a registered company such as Corporation (Corp., Inc.), Limited Liability Company (LLC, LC, Ltd. Co.), or a legal entity (GmbH, AG, KG, oHg, etc.).

If you are a sole proprietorship you must register as an Individual. Apple does not accept DBAs, fictitious businesses, trade names, or branches for enrollment as a company/organization

Benefits of an Organization account:

  • You can invite developers to access your account
  • You can choose the name that will be displayed on the stores as the Developer of the app – this will match your company name e.g. Business Inc.
  • Apple will know you’re authorized to act for the company and will not challenge your use of your own brand name and content

How do banner ads and pre-rolls work?

We’ve developed an easy-to-use online media scheduler at You will have access to this dashboard where you can manage and schedule pre-roll audio for your app. When your app starts, it will play this pre-roll before the stream starts.

Amazon Alexa skills are special “apps” for the Echo and Dot smart speaker line.

What is a multiple station app?

A multiple station app is simply a single app with multiple stations available within it. Perhaps you have a cluster of stations in a market that you want to brand under one app, or a station with an HD2 or online side-channel you wish to make available in a single app. Your app can open up and be fully branded as “WXYZ” but through a menu option, allow users to switch to “WXYZ-HD2” and experience that station without switching to another app. Download the KXOJ app for an example of a multi-station app.

What is dynamic content?

One of the ways to keep your app fresh is with dynamic content. We provide this through our customer dashboard. For example, you used to have to update your app in the app store just to change the pre-roll audio or video. Now you can do it on the fly and your listeners will not have to update the app. You can change backgrounds for holidays or special occasions, or change the shout-out graphic and of course ad banners. You can even schedule different elements like you would advertising.
