Mobile Application Development

The Mobile App Distribution Service provides processes and tools around the review, approval, publication, and distribution of mobile applications on the public marketplaces. Emory requires an internal review of all mobile applications developed at Emory prior to submission for distribution in public marketplaces, including but not limited to the Apple App Store and Google Play. This process is initiated by the Office of Technology Transfer in consultation with Legal Counsel, Marketing & Communications, and the Office of Information Technology. All mobile applications that are developed by Emory, owned by Emory, or bearing Emory branding must comply with these policies.
