You might have heard about the word “Reskinning”, and sometimes this word has been confused with “Cloning”. Let’s take a closer look at what is reskinning all about.
What is App Reskinning?
App Reskinning is purchasing an app source code so you can change the graphic design and sound effects, then give it a new name and a different look or feel.
Is it Ethical to Reskin?
Yes, it is ethical because nothing is being stolen. In fact, developers are selling their app source code so others can reskin it. It is not just copying an app without permission, but transaction and agreement took place before an app is reskinned, so we can say that it’s entirely ethical.
Why should you Reskin an app?
- App Reskinning saves you from coding the app from scratch which means you can reduce costs and create a new app in less time.
- Reskinning is a good option especially when you’re just starting on mobile app business, and you have minimal resources.
- You can also create multiple apps from a single source code that you purchased which means more opportunity of getting noticed on the app store.
