Development Principles

In addition to the rules laid down in this section, all apps developed for Bayer must conform to the relevant regulations and additional specific guidelines. You must also check whether there are any legal regulations relating to apps in your country that must be complied with. 


Apps must conform to strict security and data protection requirements.


Apps must have a clear release and update cycle that includes bug fixes and updates.


It is recommended that apps with a lot of content have a two-stage installation process with the app downloading additional resources as required.


If access to particular features of a mobile device (e.g., camera, address book or network) is required, then the user must be informed.


If you are intending to compile usage statistics, then you will need to integrate relevant packages within the development process.


All apps must be submitted to the Business Services Mobility Engineering for publication.
