  • iOS Devs Told They Can't Upload Apps through iTunes Connect After July 22nd



    Late last night, registered iOS developers began receiving email notifications from Apple indicating a big change is coming this Thursday, July 22nd. According to the message, developers can no longer submit or even update their apps (those available in the Apple App Store) through iTunes Connect.

    Beginning July 22, you will need to use Application Loader to submit your binary to iTunes Connect.
    Despite a longstanding preference by Apple to have devs submit and tweak their apps via the online iTunes Connect client, the native Mac application dubbed "Application Loader" shouldn't present too many obstacles to maintaining business as usual for developers. Of course, the move does strike some as particularly interesting if not arbitrary. But, in the big picture, the shift to app submissions through "Application Loader" should ultimately be well received, given its well known fast upload speeds along with other attributes that outpace iTunes Connect in terms of both stability and functionality.

    If you have installed iPhone SDK 3.2 or later, you can access Application Loader from the Utilities folder (/Developer/Applications/Utilities/Application Loader.app). You can also download Application Loader from iTunes Connect.
    Additionally, "Application Loader" is primed and ready for apps with the "in-app purchase" API, effectively helping developers take full advantage of the newer, more sophisticated components of iOS 4 and the increasingly lucrative opportunities that have been heavily promoted by Apple in recent weeks and months.

      I want to know exactly where in the title or article of this thread jailbreaking is mentioned.

      Hint: stop talking about something not related to the article at hand.

      In app purchases have stained apps. I want to purchase a full app...not be gnawed on penny after penny until I have all of the features.

      its for games like TAPTAP or farmvile so that you can buy extra things such as more coins to make your farm better or more WELL known songs rather than some of the free stuff Tapulous is allowed to give.

      Are you serious. Can't be bothered? The cheapest method of app dev on a Mac is probably the mini and it's not exactly optimal performance. The fact is that a lot of people have windows. A ot of people could design great apps and don't have the money to buy a Mac. A lot of people give apple a lot of money. They already take I think it's thirty percent of income for apps even though the app store is really what sells the iPhone in the first place. And they charge us for it. We should be paid for developing apps because as i said, its the tens of thousands of apps in the app store that really sell this phone. And apple has developed what, a dozen apps. Apple is just trying to squeeze the last few cents a starving artist has out of their pockets. Apple is messy. I love my iPhone but apple is messy in the business they do.
