How do I find out what my app id is?

Where will my app banner be displayed?

By default it will be displayed on the top of every page. You can disable this by unchecking the box at Settings > Smart App Banners > Show banner on all pages

How do I add a "Download on the App Store" badge using widgets?

Using shortcodes?
