Apptentive iOS SDK

The Apptentive iOS SDK provides a simple and powerful channel to communicate in-app with your customers.

Use Apptentive features to improve your app's App Store ratings, collect and respond to customer feedback, show surveys at specific points within your app, and more.

Install Guide

Apptentive can be installed manually as an Xcode subproject or via the dependency manager CocoaPods.

The following guides explain the integration process:

Using Apptentive in your App

After integrating the Apptentive SDK into your project, you can begin using Apptentive features in your app.

You should begin by setting your app's API key, then engaging Apptentive events at various places in your app:

#import "Apptentive.h"
Apptentive.shared.APIKey = @"<Your API Key>";
[Apptentive.shared engage:@"event_name" fromViewController:viewController];

Or, in Swift:

import Apptentive
Apptentive.shared.APIKey = "<Your API Key>"
Apptentive.shared.engage(event: "event_name", from: viewController)

Later, on your Apptentive dashboard, you will target these events with Apptentive features such as Message Center, Ratings Prompts, and Surveys.

Please see our iOS integration guide for more on this subject.
