Troubleshooting

Common issues

You receive an email from the hard-working beaver saying that this app will not build

  • You uploaded an icon that has the same name as an existing asset that you have uploaded

  • Your app icon is not an image file

  • Your app icon contains transparent pixels. Apple does not allow you to have any icons with any transparent colors

  • We are having trouble with our build servers. Please try again in 30 minutes or chat with us if you are still having problems

  • App (Bundle) ID. Your App (Bundle) ID is a series of short strings of text that are separated by periods, such as com.thunkable.creator.app. These string of text must i) be lowercase, ii) begin with a letter.

    • Examples of App (Bundle) IDs that can cause errors: com.thunkable.creator.1app, Com.Thunkable.Creator.APP

  • Asset names. We recommend that asset names only contain Roman alphabet characters with no accents, and numbers.

    • Examples of asset names that could cause errors: image(1).jpg, imรฃge.jpg

    • Examples of asset names that won't cause errors: image1.jpg, image.jpg

You cannot install your app and get the message "Cannot connect to storage.googleapis.com"

  • You have a special character like "&" in your App Nameโ€‹

When you install your app on Android, you see the message "There was a problem parsing the Package"

  • This is caused by your package name, also known in your project as your App (Bundle) ID. Your App (Bundle) ID is a series of short strings of text that are separated by periods, such as com.thunkable.creator.app. These string of text must i) be lowercase, ii) begin with a letter.

    • Examples of App (Bundle) IDs that can cause errors: com.thunkable.creator.1app, Com.Thunkable.Creator.APP
