Driving traffic to your app from your mobile site is the smartest way to gain new app users and retain mobile visitors.
We highly recommend promoting your app using Apple’s smart app banners and the equivalent solution for Android – with these you’ll show a banner suggesting to install your app only to your website visitors using either an iOS or an Android device.
See examples below:
How do I add this to my site?
Install the plugin App Banners.
Activate the plugin, then go to ‘Settings->App Banners‘ and enter your Apple App Store App ID and Google Play App ID, Author, App title and price (if you’re selling your app).
How to find your iOS App Store ID
The easiest way to find your iTunesStoreID or AppId is by opening iTunes and copying the information directly from the App Store url.
Please follow these steps:
- Open iTunes.
- Search for your app.
- Click your app’s name and copy the URL (In case of PC users, mouse right-click on App Name).
- App store URL’s will be in the following format:
http://itunes.apple.com/[country]/app/[App–Name]/id[App Id or Store Id]?mt=8
Here is an example url:
How to find your Android App ID
Visit Google Play and search for your app. The URL of your app will look like this: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mobiloud.android.yourappname. You have to copy everything after “id=“, in this case: com.mobiloud.android.yourappname – this is the app ID of your Android app.
