Once you complete development of your app, the next step is to submit the app to get approval for sale on the store. The purpose of this approval process is basically to secure the quality of apps to be sold and installed on customers' webOS TV devices.
The app approval process involves the following three stages.
This is a stage where you submit your app on LG Seller Lounge to get approval for sale and become a seller. LG Seller Lounge is a channel than enables developers to go through the app approval process. In this subsection, we will focus on what and how you prepare for app submission, rather than on what and how you actually do on LG Seller Lounge. For detailed information about LG Seller Lounge, see App Ecosystem and LG Seller Lounge.
In addition to app files, including app package file (IPK) and other images, there are some documents that you need to prepare for submission.
In this stage, LG tests your app to make sure that the app meets the set criteria. It performs pretest to check the validity of the submitted app information, function test to examine if the app works as expected without errors, and content test to rule out any possibility of containing inappropriate content.
If your app passes the QA testing, there is nothing much you need to do. Your app will be launched on LG Content Store and wait for customers to find and download.
One thing to keep in mind is that even though your app is once approved, that doesn't mean its updates or later versions are too. If there is any change to the app after being approved, the change has to go through a separate approval process to be available for sale. Unless, it can be removed from the store without notice.
