When using Application Loader I received the following error message:
The application wrapper must in in .app. /var/folders/j4/dxcyk0g90277p3cw5g9mq8640000/T/Stellapop_Digital_Broc hures.zip/BrandingBrochure.folio is invalid
Any ideas how to fix this? Please help!?!
I do not understand... If the DPS App builder can publish and send my app into iTunes, why should I use application loader? Also, I downgreaded the Application loader to 2.8 it comes with the " wrapper must end in .app" if I have it in the latest version 2.9 it says: Apple's web service operation was not successful
unable to authenticate the package
Error ITMS-9000: "No .app bundles found in the package...
Could you please help me with this?
DPS App Builder does not actually submit your app to iTunes. It just produces the file you then upload via Application Loader.
Make sure you are attempting to submit the .zip file generated from app builder and not the .ipa for internal testing purposes.
But does DPS App Builder produce .zip file? I thought we should make .zip from folio producer page (by clicking Publish & Export)?
And correct me if I am wrong, so .ipa is only useful to have it on our iTunes as a test user version, is that right?
And the last question, these errors, are they related to the version of applciation loader or subscription limitations? and if not, I tried veriosn 2.8 and 2.9 (as I explained above) and still have problem in both versions.
Are you a Creative Cloud user? If so I suggest following the steps in our publishing guide: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/ppcompdoc/Step_by_step_guide_to_dps_se.pdf. It will walk you thorugh step-by-step how to do this.
I have started DPS in early 2011 and made an app. Then I had a couple of years absence and I am back again.
I pretty much know all the steps which as mentioned in that pdf file you've kindly attached. However now it makes more sence to me.
I am not a creative cloud member because my clients want their apps to be published in both iPhone & iPad and (again correct me if I am wrong) I know I have to purchase Pro Edition which allows me to do so.
One last question and it might sound silly. So no matter if it is a single edition or Pro, the process will be the same, is that right?
If you are a professional customer we have a similar guide that explains step-by-step how to submit your app: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/ppcompdoc/Adobe_Publishing_Companion_Guide _for_iPad.pdf.
From what you have written above it sounds like you are trying to create a Single Edition application, even though you are a professional subscriber. Single Edition apps are iPad only. They do not support iPhone at all. If your client wants to support iPhone the only option is to create a multi-issue application and submit that to the store, then publish issues using Folio Producer.
You mentioned using Folio producer to publish... I have both my apps in folio producer now. Once I published them, it only gives me free and public choices... and then the export button give me the chance to create .zip.
...but still I have to deal with DPS app builder and application loader, don't I?
Yes, you still need to use App Builder and Application Loader for DPS apps.
With any type of app you create, you use DPS App Builder to generate the .zip file. That .zip file includes the .app (or .ipa) file along with other information required by Apple. (Do not crack open that .zip file or it will likely become unsigned and invalid.) You then use Application Loader (preferably the newest version) to upload that unedited .zip file to Apple for approval.
The steps for creating single-folio apps and multi-folio apps are slightly different. When you create a single-folio app as a Pro customer, you use the Export command in Folio Producer to build the .zip file that you'll be baking into your app. (Or you can select the folio in the InDesign panel and choose Create App like CC customers.) If you create a multi-folio app, the key information to specify is the "Title ID." That Title ID is the Adobe ID that you use to publish the folios that will appear in your app. For an app that supports both the iPad and iPhone, you'll need to publish separate folios for the iPad and iPhone. iPad folios don't show up on the iPhone, and vice versa.
