Upload Apps to ArborXR

In this article


Overview

With ArborXR's app support you can build and upload a library of apps (.apk with .obb support included) to the Apps page of your Content Library then remotely deploy apps to devices.

There are no file size restrictions. 

Hosting & storage

ArborXR offers the ability for customers to connect their own cloud storage bucket to isolate their content (apps & files) from other content on the platform. Connecting a custom cloud storage bucket is an optional step while onboarding after the Create an Organization step. 
Below is documentation on the required configuration of various storage providers to enable the connection to ArborXR:
If you've already onboarded and created your organization but would like to self-host your content (apps & files), please contact support to set this up.

Upload Apps

  1. In the side navigation menu, under Content Library, navigate to the Apps page
  2. Click the Add App button
  3. This will open a modal where you will need to:
    • Enter the title of your app.
    • After you've entered the title, you will be prompted to select the Device Compatibility (i.e., whether the app is built for Pico Neo 2, HTC VIVE Focus Plus, etc.)
    • Note: if the app is compatible with multiple device types, be sure to select all relevant device types from the dropdown menu. 
    • After you've specified the Device Compatibility, click the Add App button.
  4. You will now be directed to the app's overview page where you can do the following:
    • In the Versions tab, upload the app's .apk by clicking Upload Version then click Browse or simply drag & drop the .apk.
      If your app includes .obb file(s) you must upload a zipped folder containing the .apk and any corresponding .obb files. For more information on .obb files please see this article.
    • Deploy to device groups or to ungrouped devices via the Devices tab. 
      • For more information on device groups please see this article
    • Add a description, launcher image and tags via the Details tab.  
      • The recommended aspect ratio for launcher images are 4:3. 
      • For more information on creating, assigning and filtering by tags please see this article

Version management

ArborXR offers app update functionality similar to the Google Play Store in that app data is retained between updates. In order to take advantage of this feature, all new versions of an app must be uploaded to the existing app entry within the Apps page, rather than creating a new app entry for each new version.
