1. Private Apps
Private apps are designed specifically for your Shopify store (unlike public apps that are designed for other stores to work with). You can use private apps to add functionality to your Shopify administrator, directly access your store data using the Shopify APIs, or expand your online store to other sites using custom storefronts.
These are the ways you can use your Private Apps for,
- Create an importer for the migration of your data to Shopify from Magento or another provider.
- Integrate the data from your store with a custom system that you use to control your orders, items or inventories outside of Shopify./li>
- Offer items from your Shopify shop, including a smartphone app, website or video game, on a customized marketplace.
- Private apps are designed by a developer you select according to your preferences, so if you’ve got a professional developer you can have that faith in them.
- If your store is on the trial program, then there are no more than five private apps you can make. Otherwise, you might build as many private applications as you like.
2. Public Apps:
These third-party Shopify applications (made by an external developer, not Shopify) can be found in the App Store at Shopify and use standard access authentication methods. This app is the kind that most merchants at Shopify know.
When a developer submits apps to the App Store, Shopify’s team can give them a cursory evaluation for basic functionality, but Shopify does not guarantee 100 percent protection or health.
Almost everyone. These are designed to work for different stores so anyone can use them once they’re added to the Shopify App Store.
3. Partner Apps :
Partner apps are apps built through the partner platform of Shopify. When you plan to create an app, you can sign up to become a Shopify partner free of charge. There is a template for device configurations in the partner account area that is for your applications.
4. Beta Apps :
Shopify allows developers to post applications that are still in the development process so that they can obtain input on various features before introducing them to a broader public. These are known as beta-apps.
- Beta apps are applications in the App Store that pass a live testing process.
- Add, remove, and configure sections on product pages through the new online store editor
- New online store editor to customize pages and sections within the Shopify Admin.
Within the standard App Store, test applications are open to all, but they are labelled with a button that says “Testing” to signify that they are still being refined
5. Unlisted Apps :
Apps that are not listed are App Store products, which do not appear in the lists on the App Store. We are planning to operate in many stores with all of Shopify’s APIs. Like all the other applications in the App Store, you won’t see unlisted applications because they do use approved Shopify APIs. We also have a message bar that says “Unsupported,” but that simply means that now you need to contact the developer to get help.
