IntuiFace Marketplace Publication Guidelines

    Introduction

    Want to list your IntuiFace-based work on the IntuiFace Marketplace? The Marketplace is a great platform for experience creators to get exposure and even make some money.

    This article reviews what you need to know.

    NOTE: You must be in possession of an active Composer license (either Essential, Premier or Enterprise) in order to list an experience in the Marketplace.

    Submission and Review Process

    1. Experience submission
      • Once you've built your experience in IntuiFace, publish it and then open its information panel.
      • At the bottom of this information panel, in the "Submit Experience to Marketplace" section, click the Submit button.
      • Complete and submit the "Experience Submission Form". Be sure to review the Experience Checklist before submitting your experience to avoid several rounds of reviews.
    2. Experience review
      At this stage we do a review of the design, usability, content and structure of the experience.
    3. Experience approval/rejection
      Once we determined whether your experience is approved or rejected - after no more than two business days - you will receive notification by email. If approved, your experience is automatically listed on the IntuiFace Marketplace.

    Experience Checklist

    Your experience must meet all of these requirements to be approved for listing on the IntuiFace Marketplace. Go through this list before submitting your experience for review.

    Quality standards

    We look for craftsmanship in IntuiFace experiences that would otherwise require an investment of time or money to create. We look for working experiences with intuitive navigation and interaction and overall good design. Do not submit a very simple experience with only one interaction element unless there is something extremely special about it. If you have a simple experience, consider making a multi-pack instead. Do not send us default experiences that require just a few clicks to create. Your submissions should be a reflection of your talent and skill.

    Functionality

    Things should work as much as possible out of the box. If there are unavoidable configuration steps to be performed by the user, such as defining a Twitter feed, these should be clearly documented in an Instructions scene to support user experience and ensure overall satisfaction. Instruction scenes should identify what needs to be preconfigured and, if relevant, linking elements to supporting articles in the IntuiFace Knowledge Base. Make sure all triggers and actions in your experience are operational.

    Usability

    Interaction with your experience should be intuitive. Users must easily understand how to navigate from one scene to another and clearly identify which elements in your experience are interactive and which are not. For example, for Image buttons, make sure you differentiate the pressed state to provide visual feedback.
    Make good use of the different asset states - free, static, pinnable - to ensure elements are only as interactive as you intended them to be.

    Design

    Even though design is subjective, we expect an overall good design for submitted experiences. Experience layout should follow consistent spacing and should not appear crammed or cluttered. Text needs to be legible and should have proper spelling and grammar. (Paragraphs can use “lorem ipsum”). Images should not appear pixelated.

    Organization in Composer

    If you permit users to edit your experiences, make sure everything is well organized and appropriately named in Composer. Users must easily identify which elements are to be modified. If you are using hidden elements make sure to lock them so it is easier for users to manipulate items on the scene in Edit Mode.

    Performance

    Be thoughtful about experience performance. Media content should be reasonably sized. Do not use a 4K background if your target screen's resolution is only FullHD.

    If you are presenting multiple scenes or collections that reproduce a similar layout, use Excel to structure your data. See this article for guidance about using Excel for such repetitive designs.

    Content you do not hold the license to resell

    You may not upload content that you did not create or are not legally licensed to resell. This includes images or videos ripped from other websites or content you purchased on stock photo and video websites. You also may not use paid fonts such as Helvetica or Proxima Nova as the font source is provided to the user in the project. Make sure the fonts you use in your experience are free (such as Google Fonts).

    Never upload anything you did not create or are not legally allowed to resell. You are legally liable and can be sued by the owner of the content and by anyone who purchases and uses the experience.

    Testing your experience

    Before submitting an experience make sure you test it thoroughly on all the platforms for which you are claiming support. Do not submit an experience for a platform you have not tested. If upon submission we find broken triggers and actions or if the experience is performing poorly because of oversized media, we will reject it.

    Submitting your experience

    Use an explicit name for your experience so users can easily understand what it contains. Provide a clear summary and description of your experience. Also choose full screen screenshots of your experience that best represent your project.

    We also encourage you to support your experiences with great supplementary material. You want to make a good impression and you want your project to stand out from the crowd. You can also entice your users by linking to website material and/or YouTube/Vimeo videos to create an interest among your audience. A short demonstration video usually makes a good first impression and clearly illustrates what your experience is all about.

    Experience Support

    • Experience sellers are responsible for providing support to their customers. Individual listings on the Marketplace have Support information including the seller’s email address and/or website URL for posting support questions. Experience sellers are required to respond within two business days.
    • Support questions related to IntuiFace issues and features should be directed to IntuiFace Support.

    Experience Licensing

    • On the IntuiFace Marketplace, experiences can be either purchased or freely downloaded either as IntuiFace source code (i.e. you can edit the experience in the Composer) or as play-only (i.e. you can only play the experience). Each of the resulting four combinations (purchase/free and source code/play-only) has an associated license. Those four licenses are detailed here.
    • Experience sellers must agree to the Experience Seller Agreement.

    Experience Prices and Payment

    Experience Seller Agreement

    Experience sellers agree to these points when listing their experience on the IntuiFace Marketplace:

    • IntuiFace experiences are exclusive to the IntuiFace Marketplace. Experience sellers must not resell the same experience on any other marketplace or service.
    • If an experience has any bugs we will remove the experience from the IntuiFace Marketplace until the bugs are fixed by the experience seller.
    • Experiences must be updated with the latest IntuiFace features.
    • Experience sellers can advertise their experiences on their personal website or through other channels, but it has to link to the experience detail page on the IntuiFace Marketplace.
    • If improperly-licensed images/assets are found in an experience, all of the experience seller’s experiences will be unpublished and reviewed for infringement.
    • The experience commission structure is experimental and may change.
    • Experience sellers retain the rights to the experience they sell on the IntuiFace Marketplace. They transfer these rights to the experience customer as part of the license agreement established for that experience. License options are described here.
