To learn more about the difference between public and private apps, you can visit the article on the types of app development at Clio.
Public app developers
If you are a public app developer, fill out this short form to apply for an App Developer account. Once you have completed the form, our team will review your application. If you are eligible to be a Clio App Developer, you will receive an email that directs you to sign up for your free Clio developer account.
Completing this process will ensure that you have a test account for building apps, you will receive the most up-to-date communication on new functionality as well as community updates.
Once your application has been approved, and you have access to an App Developer account, continue to Building your app for next steps.
Private app developers
If you are a private app developer looking to build for the specific needs of a single client, or your own law firm, you do not need to fill out the App Developer application form. You can start building right away, as long as you have login credentials for the client you are building, or you have login access to your own law firm's Clio account.
