    Application Design Considerations

    In this topic, you will learn about vendor restrictions for your app, as well as guidance for app content like Help pages.

    Introduction

    The first section of this document lets you know restrictions some vendors have for your app. The vendors are listed with lists of restrictions following.

    The rest of the document contains sections on content you should consider for inclusion in your application. For instance, what should your Help page look like, and what text should it contain.

    Vendor design restrictions

    Many vendors have some design restrictions that you cannot change. It is important to be aware of these issues so you do not spend time requesting a feature, or feature change, that is not allowed.

    iOS

    • For the tabbed_block and dropdown-block block types to function correctly, they must be the only blocks on a page.

    Apple TV

    Acmeone is a video streaming platform that enables users to watch live TV, movies and series over the internet.
    
    A user needs to download the Acmeone application in order to have access to the Acmeone platform.
    
    Once the Acmeone application has been downloaded, the Acmeone landing page will enable the user to register, login or explore Acmeone.
    
    Once the user completes registration or login (or enters Acmeone in explore mode), the user will be taken to the Acmeone home page.
    
    The Acmeone home page will present the main menu, where users will be able to:
     *Watch Live TV
     *Watch On Demand Movies
    
    Acmeone will also enable users to save favorites, rate and search for content.
    
    The Acmeone Settings section will enable users to review their account, change passwords, logout, set parental controls and change the language to/from Spanish and English.
