Frequently Asked Questions

What is Hatch Apps?

Hatch Apps is an enterprise software company that provides an App as a Service. At Hatch Apps, we have a mission to empower the next generation of technology-enabled businesses.

Where will my app deploy?

All apps built on the Hatch platform deploy to the App Store, the Google Play Store and the web.

Are the apps built on Hatch native, web, or hybrid?

Native. We deploy Objective-C to iOS, Java to Android, and web code (PHP, HTML, CSS, JS) for web browsers.

What is live design editing?

Any Hatch app can be live edited by you, the app owner, without having to resubmit to the app stores. This means that you can update designs and content continuously – even after your app has been downloaded by your users. Once you hit “publish”, the edits that you made will immediately go live for all of your users. 

This means that you don’t have to wait for a developer to make changes— you can do it all yourself with a few clicks of a button.

What types of apps does Hatch offer?

Customization options for your app on Hatch are endless, and new features are constantly being developed and added to the product.

How do I manage and update my apps?

As a Hatch customer, you’ll access a web-based dashboard from which you can manage your app content, send push notifications, track analytics, export user data, manage user-generated content, and update your app as you grow.

Can I control user content submissions?

Yes! Customers can manage their users as well as their user-generated submissions. By clicking on the settings cog icon next to “Submissions,” customers can choose whether or not to auto-approve content as well as whether or not to auto-disable content. If auto-disabled submission content is toggled on, customers can set the number of flags required to disable content from the app. Flags on content are user-generated. 

Does Hatch makes updates to its apps?

We continuously upgrade our product and ensure quality performance with the latest versions of iOS and Android.

What are the push notification capabilities?

Our dashboard offers unlimited push notifications, push notifications segmented by user data and user activity, and scheduled push notifications.
