Licensing

 
Did you know that when you purchase a template from MyAppTemplates, you’re actually purchasing a license to use that template? So it pays to understand our license structure.

Start with the comparison table and licenses overview below, then take a few minutes to read the license terms.

We’ve kept our licenses as simple as we can, so you’ll find more details, explanations, and examples below the comparison table. If you still can’t find the answer you’re looking for, please contact us.

What are the main differences between the Single License and Developer License?

In simple terms, under the Single License your app can only be distributed on one marketplace, can only be used for a single end product (normally an app), and cannot be used for multiple end products.

Under the Developer License your end product may be distributed on multiple marketplaces and can be used for up to 5 end products.

 

What do you mean by “item” and “end product”?

The item is what you purchase from MyAppTemplates. The end product is what you build with that item.

Example: The item is an app template such as iMate; the end product is the finalized published app in the App Store or Play Store.

 

What is a single application?

A single application means one unique end product (which can be copied and made available to end users of that product).

Example: An app template can only be customized to create one customized app. If you want to create a second app from the same template, you should purchase another license or purchase a Developer License. So if you buy the Single License for Chatt, you can’t make two different chat apps from it, you can only make one.

 

What do you mean by “marketplace”?

By “marketplace” we refer to an online store or platform for purchasing and/or downloading software applications and mobile apps for computers, tablets, and mobile devices.

Examples: Apple App Store, Google Play, Amazon Appstore for Android, Samsung Apps. Other examples include distribution through your own website or mobile application management system.

 

What does “royalty free” mean?

“Royalty free” means you need to pay for the item only once per end product. You don’t need to continue to pay based on the number of people who download or use it. If your app becomes super popular, that’s great! You don’t owe MyAppTemplates any more money. The exception is if you bought a Single License and you later decide to offer your app through multiple marketplaces or if you start making different versions of the app. Those things would require a Developer License.

Example: Let’s say you license the Real Estate app template and make an awesome app from it that allows people to look at the local listings of real estate agents in your area. You put the app in the App Store, and lots of copies are downloaded or sold. Because it’s a royalty-free license, you don’t have to pay us for those downloads or sales.

 

What does “non-exclusive” mean?

“Non-exclusive” just means that you are not the only person with access to the item (the app template). Others will also be licensing and using the same item.

 

I’m a freelancer. Can I use the template for an end product I’m doing for a client?

Yes. You’re essentially buying the item on your client’s behalf. Whether a Single License or Developer License is needed will depend on your client’s use of the item. With both theSingle License and Developer License you are allowed to charge your client for creating the end product. Once you transfer the end product to the client (that is, giving them the source files for the item) you are required to delete the item itself from your computer.

 

Am I allowed to modify the item that I purchased?

Yes. You can customize the items to fit the needs of your end product.

Example: You could change the colors, text, data sources, and layout of a template.

 

Can I re-distribute an item? What about under the Developer License?

No. You can’t license items and then make them available to others “as-is” (that is, as a stand-alone item or as stock), regardless of which license you purchase.

Example: You can’t buy an app template and distribute it as an app template, source files and all. You can’t re-sell the same thing you licensed from MyAppTemplates.

 

Do I have to credit the author of the item in my end product?

No, it’s not mandatory to give the author credit. However, as the author retains ownership of the item, you shouldn’t claim copyright in the item.

 

Are there any ongoing licensing costs when I publish my app?

Nope, you can publish your app as your own, and there are no ongoing licensing costs to pay MyAppTemplates once you have bought your template. Just keep in mind the differences between Single and Developer Licenses.

 

Do you have a Developer License?

Yes. You can buy Developer Licenses on the product pages, just click “Developer License.”

Example: You cannot buy an app template once and use it for more than one client.
