  2. Alternatively, to identify the bundle ID for:

    • iOS apps: You can look up the app's iTunes URL. For example, if an app's iTunes is https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/urbanspoon/id284708449, then the bundle id will be 284708449.

    • Android apps: You can look up the app on Google Play. For example, if an Android app's URL is https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.gazeus.dominoes.battle.board.game, then the bundle ID will be the part after "id =" which is com.gazeus.dominoes.battle.board.game.

    • OEM and web traffic: Please look up the corresponding bundle ID in the media transparency reports provided (Publisher List and Delivery Report).

    • The bundle ID for Android apps/OEM traffic/web traffic is usually a string of characters, but for iOS apps, the bundle ID is numeric.
