Just enter the URL of your app and it will start the import.
We have implemented the Sticky Albums migration capability first, but if you have apps from another vendor that you would like to migrate, just click on help and open a support ticket and we will see what we can do.
Markdown is a popular plain text formatting syntax used by Mad Mimi and others. Markdown is useful because you can create text on your apps that works well across a variety of devices. MyPhotoApp uses a markdown variant called GFM. You can click on the link Mastering Markdown to learn more.
Here is a link to a Knowledge Base Article that describes the various link types you can use.
Optionally, you can add an initial password for apps that are required before they can be opened.
Optionally, you can set an expiration date after which the app will no longer be able to be opened. The date specified will be the last date the app will work.
Select the particular email campaign you want to assign to this app.
Please be patient.
App Renames, App Duplication, and New Template Save operations can take a while... several minutes. The time is proportional to the number of images you have in your app.
Save your current layout (sections, content, color scheme) in one of two ways:
Apps Saved as templates will appear in the App Navigator with the suffix _template added to their name. You can keep your templates separate from the your Apps by creating a new Template folder to hold them.
Upload a logo file. Uploads take effect immediately and only effect this app. If you want to change the logo for all future apps, use the quick setup option on the builder tab.
Logo Size: Percent (reduce number to shrink logo)
Note: 1280x280 is just a recommendation and any size can be uploaded.
Or... optionally you can just use some text for your logo and not use an image.
Upload a file that can be referenced in your app.
Note: Resource files are limited to 1mb in size and need simple file names with only 1 period followed by a 3 letter suffix and no special characters.
The rain in spain falls mainly on the plain.
MyPhotoApp uses Google Fonts. For a complete list of fonts and examples, visit https://www.google.com/fonts. Default is the normal MyPhotoApp font.
abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ 012345679
If you want the link to dial a telephone number, enter the URL: tel:xxxx where xxxx is the number to dial.
If you want a page to display when the image is pressed, enter the URL: page:xxxx where xxxx is the label of the page.New window will have the link open in a new window on a computer.
Enter the name of this custom section:
Normally all your public app icons are displayed. If you select the tree view option, then public apps within a folder will not be initially displayed, but their folder will and you will need to click on the folder to see the public apps inside the folder.
|Display Label:||(Display the label on the app when menu position is left)|
|Display Bar:||(display menu as a bar)|
|Always Visible:||(Menu is always Visible)|
This special menu section adds a menu to your app or website allowing users to select pages to be displayed. The menu uses the page labels for each page. All page sections in an App are automatically added to the menu unless you choose to exclude pages by specifying the page labels in the relevant settings field. It is possible to create Menus up to 2 levels deep. By default, pages with a standard name appear as top level 1 items in the menu. To create a level 2 submenu under a level 1 item you need to add the level one page label followed by a colon at the front of the level two page label like this -pagelabel:pagelabel (Level1:level2). Clicking on the menu displays ONLY level 1 page item until a person clicks or touches a level 1 item which has level 2 items, the level 2 page items are then displayed. It is possible to create multiple level 2 pages under the same level 1 page.
Enter the complete url, including the http:// .
Note that many websites, such as pinterest for example, do not permit their web page to be viewable in a browser iframe. The builder will attempt to detect that and give you a warning message if the url you enter doesn't support iframes.
Enter the complete url, including the http:// pointing to the PDF document you wish to display.
Note: PDF sections will prevent the app from being able to be viewed offline.
The note section lets you add a text box where the user can add notes to the app. The notes are persistent on the device, meaning that the app will remember what has been typed.
On mobile devices, when viewing an app in a web browser vs viewing the app once it is installed are treated like two separate devices.
MyPhotoApp has built in statistics, but you can also optionally use external usage tracking systems.
Supported Usage Tracking Systems:
Google Analytics - https://www.google.com/analytics
Audience - http://proimageshare.com/audience-link/
Facebook Pixel - https://www.facebook.com/business/help/952192354843755
StatCounter - http://StatCounter.com - If using this tracking technique, app will not work offline. Tracking id is of the form: projectid-securityid
Google Remarketing - https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/2453998?hl=en

You can set a button to toggle the visibility of a layout section.
You can add a custom button to your app. Please provide the URL for the png, jpg, or svg image.
The custom button must be already designed for your apps with the correct color scheme and size. MyPhotoApp uses the icon as is and from the location you specify. So do not delete this icon as your apps will no longer be able to find it.
Here is an example URL: http://m.mp-app.com/common7/instagram-icon.png that has an instagram icon.
Custom icons are recommended to be 65x65 pixels, but can be any size.

Click on the icon symbol above to select a new icon.
You can add YouTube, Animoto or Vimeo videos on the bottom of the first page of your app. Enter the url of the video you want to add and click the add button. The video url must follow one of the patterns below.
Don't Cache Images
If you checkmark this option, app won't be cached on devices and as such they will only be able to be used when connected to the internet. Useful if you are changing your apps often or you want to be able to delete the app and your clients no longer be able to view their app on their devices. If caching is turned off, app install statistics are not captured.
Wait For Images To Download
Normally the app on the devices starts as soon as possible and loads images in the background. If you check this, the app won't start the first time till all images have been loaded on the device into the cache. This will insure that the app will work even when offline without having to first view all the images. This is accomplished at the expense of a quick startup. This only works in IOS devices (e.g. iPhone).
Send Publish Email
MyPhotoApp will send you an email with the client letter when you publish your app. If you have an auto responder on, please turn it off for emails coming from MyPhotoApp.com otherwise I will get spammed with courtesy emails each time you publish an app.
MyPhotoApp optimizes the the images for app loading speed and image quality. There is a slight trade off on image quality so that the app loads quickly. If you prefer image quality over app loading speed, check this checkbox and that will disable the speed optimizations in favor of utmost image quality.
You can text the URL of an app to your mobile device so it can easily be sent to your clients. Enter your mobile phone number and press the Send Text button. Outside of United States be sure to include the country code. This is not really intended for delivering Apps directly to clients as they will not recognize the MyPhotoApp number the text comes from!
Here is a sample email you can copy and paste into an email for your client. You can click edit on the right to customize it.
Don't forget to change your password by clicking on the setup tab and view the welcome email and click on the verify link to confirm your email address.
If you are new and don't know what to do next, just click on the Wizard Tab above and build a basic app quickly and easily just by following step by step instructions.

If you need help, click on the help button in the upper right where you can search the knowledge base inside of MyPhotoApp or submit a support ticket to report a problem or request assistance.
Click on Knowledge Base to open a new browser window that will provide you access to our knowledge base where you can search on frequently asked questions and maybe get immediate answers to your questions.

Community Support Group
We have an active facebook group. It is a great place to learn and discuss with other MyPhotoApp users on how to use apps to enhance your business. Please join in on the conversation.
There are a set of training videos available in the knowledge base. Here is a link to them: https://myphotoapp.zendesk.com/knowledge/articles/115003323374

You currently have the most brands that you are licensed for and cannot add any additional brands. If you want more brands, please contact support.
MyPhotoApp Brands are a way to organize (logically separate) your apps. Most people only need one or two MyPhotoApp brands to work effectively. For example, if you are a photographer, you would have one MyPhotoApp brand for your photography business, and if you create apps for other businesses, you may (but not required) create a MyPhotoApp brand for those apps. Each MyPhotoApp brand can have unlimited marketing brands (i.e. logo, color scheme, contact info, and app look). For more info on this, check out this Brand Knowledge Base Article.
Your license entitles you to unlimited marketing brands and MyPhotoApp brands. If you need more brands, you can purchase additional ones. Open a support ticket with your request.
To add a new brand, enter the name of the brand you would like and click the Create A New Brand Button.
Note: Once you create a brand, you cannot delete the brand if there are any apps in the brand. You will need to delete all of the apps in the brand before you can delete the brand.
Email campaigns are sunset. You can either use a welcome section, or a form that is set as a visible dialog.

You can setup your own URL to point to the MyPhotoApp server and have apps use your domain name in the URL. If you purchased a new domain that you want to use explicitly for MyPhotoApp, you can follow instructions on this link: New Domain Setup. If you are just using a subdomain on your existing domain for MyPhotoApp, continue with the instructions here.
looks_one Go to your domain name provider and in the domain setup, you add a new CNAME record and have it point to mp-app.com . This will cause your new custom domain to be resolved to go to the MyPhotoApp server. This is not a redirect. Many people have made the mistake of doing a redirect and that will not work.
To the right is an example of creating a custom domain of what an entry for apps.cookdesignerportraits.com would look like on GoDaddy to give you an idea of what yours should look like.
looks_two Enter the custom url (without the http://) you created below. This lets MyPhotoApp know you have setup a custom URL and it will use that when generating the app link. If you are using your domain name for your website, then you are probably using a subdomain, like apps, so you would enter apps.yourdomainname.com, but if this is a new domain that you are dedicating to MyPhotoApp, you would enter yourdomainname.com.
Custom URL:If your current url is in use for your website, it may look something like apps.mydomainname.com, or if this is a brand new domain you are using for MyPhotoApp, maybe it would be something like mydomain.com. Verify in step 3 that this is how you want your URLS to appear.
looks_3 You can choose to have your brand as part of the URL for your apps or not. Select which URL format type you want:
2. http:///appName (Professional Subscriptions Only)
Important: Once you select a URL format type and save it, you cannot switch versions at a later date without breaking apps you published on the prevision version. Type 2 is only valid for elite and professional subscriptions and it will only work while you are an elite or professional subscriber. Type 1 will work with regular and professional.
If you have apps created in this brand using the m.mp-app.com url that you have distributed to your clients, selecting type 2 will cause them to break as the URL will change for all apps in this brand. If you have distributed apps to use type 2 you should create a new brand and use it. Type 1 will not cause distributed apps to break.
looks_4 Click the Verify and Save button to confirm everything is setup properly.
If you already have apps in this brand, once you verify and save the custom URL, please republish then so they will use the new URL.
When images are uploaded to a gallery section on your app, you can have MyPhotoApp automatically watermark your gallery images. You need to upload a png file with a transparent background with the appropriate opacity. The width and height of the watermark will be placed on the uploaded gallery photo as is and will only be resized if the photo that you uploaded is smaller in width or height. Once you upload a watermark, you will have an option on the gallery settings section on the builder tab to select the placement of the watermark on the uploaded images. More information about watermarks are located in our Watermark Knowledge Base Entry.
You can automatically add the emails you collect with a form into your MailChimp email system.
To find your API key, you can read About API Keys.
To find your list id, you can read Find Your List Id.
Postmark is an email service located at PostMarkApp.com. If you setup an account there, you can add your postmark credentials here and MyPhotoApp will use your credentials to send emails. This will permit emails to come from you, and not from MyPhotoApp. You can have multiple credentials which is useful if you are building apps with forms for other businesses.
Note: This is currently an experimental feature. We only have a US number while we prototype this, but expect to expand that to other countries. The text number could possibly change or stop working at any time. This is a free feature for professional users, but if this gets popular, other arrangements may be required. If you like this feature, please join in on the discussion on the facebook group.

App: Metric: Chart Type:
Other: Other types of devices including laptop and desktop computers.
Views: The number of times that the app was displayed on the device. If the app was accessed while the device was not connected to the internet, the access will not be recorded.
Installs: The approximate number of times the app was installed on a device. If an app was installed on one device, then deleted, and reinstalled, the device would be counted twice. It takes more than one activation on a device to detect that it was installed. Unfortunately, if a person opens an app on a device in a browser, and refreshed the browser, the app appears like it was installed on the device.
Devices: The approximate number of unique devices that the app has been viewed on. Devices are also browsers. So if a person uses one computer and two different browsers to view the app, the device count will be increased by 2. If people clear their cookies on their browser, then it will act like a new device in the statistics.
Installs and devices are approximations since for security reasons, devices won't inform when an app was truly installed nor will it identify itself as unique. MyPhotoApp uses hints to determine installs and devices which can be manipulated by a user.
