IN-APP & SUBSCRIPTIONS API - COMMON TESTING FAILURES

After submitting a subscriptions application you may find your app has failed testing when checking for your test results.  While we may be able to specifically identify the issue with your app, you may also find that your app has received a more generic test result that may not specify the problem.  Review the checklist below and make sure your app isn’t incorporating any of these common developer errors:

  • Not calling checkLicense in a thread:  this is a requirement for Android, refer to the coding recommendations.
  • Forgetting to include correct permissions in AndroidManifest.xml:   On the Android platform it is required to include permissions in your manifest that permit your application to query the authentication service running on devices, refer to the coding recommendations.
  • Forgetting to replace checkTestLicense with checkLicense:  if you are using the checkTestLicense method to test the hardcoded return values to your app, make sure to replace that method call with the real checkLicense call with the correct keyword of your application.

If you’ve validated that your app is correctly coded and doesn’t commit any of the errors above, please contact us at VCast-apps@verizonwireless.com with the specific name of your application and your test results so we can look in more detail.
