After the installation is complete, the app will open automatically. Close the app. Since the app is not available on the App Store it does not have the trusted certificate to work on iOS. You have to make the app trusted before using it for the first time.
Now you need to trust the AppChina App profile because it is a third-party app. So, go to Settings > General > Profiles / Device Management and open the AppChina profile. Tap on Trust to make the app trusted.
Now you can launch the app from the home screen. You can either browse the app collection or use the search function to find new apps. The only downside to this app is that it is in Chinese. Even though most of the apps have English names, some apps have Chinese names making it difficult to use.
