What is an App?

An App is typically a client-side application created using the Interaction SDK which uses the platform's libraries to connect in real-time to the platform. Apps are all designed to respond to controls and triggers from the platform, allowing content producers to take full control of the application's settings and real-time content behaviour.

The importance of App Spec files

In conjunction with writing a new application, every App has its own App Spec.

An App Spec is a set of JSON documents describing properties of an App such as:

  • Supported Elements with Element level settings

  • Required Services

  • Project level settings

  • Event level settings
