I am working on preparing a magazine for the Newsstand. I need to create the mobileprovisions and certificates so I can input them into the Viewer Builder. I am having trouble with this. I have looked at several articles and it seems that this needs to be done in Xcode. Is this true?
Can someone please point me in the right direction concerning this? I opened Xcode and it seems complicated to me. I imagine there's an easier way or that I am missing something.
Any help is appreciated.
Whenever you're getting ready to use Viewer Builder to create a new app or make a major revision to an existing app, it's a good idea to download the most recent version of the Companion Guide PDF. Keep in mind that this PDF is called a "Companion Guide" for a reason. When you're using the Apple iOS Provisioning Portal to create App IDs and certificates, watch the videos and use the Apple help links. When you're using iTunes Connect to manage your application and set up in-app purchases and subscriptions, use the iTunes Connect Developer Guide (https://itunesconnect.apple.com/docs/iTunesConnect_DeveloperGuide.pdf) along with the Companion Guide.
Companion Guide PDF is available on the DPS Dashboard (https://digitalpublishing.acrobat.com).
Do I need to know coding or is it a fairly simple process? I've read "Developing for the Apple Store" and while it is informative, I feel that with just a design background I may be in over my head?
So I prepared the viewer and got the mag ready for upload...Uploaded it to Apple for approval and was rejected for this reason:
Specifically, your application loads to an empty storefront.
I have an in-app purchase that is still in-review. I used the forums in the Apple Developer center and they told me that I need to know and use xcode in order to get a monthly magazine app created/approved.
I'm totally lost. Any help is appreciated
Do not confuse yourself following Apple Developer forums. X-code does not come in DPS workflow. If your App is a Multi issue App, make sure that you publish as 'Public and Retail' from the same Folio Producer id/'Title id' that you have entered in your DPS App Builder Account.
Now for testing the application, you can add upto 100 UDID's in your Provisioning portal and then re-download the Mobile provisioning files, use the new ones in DPS APP builder and then download the new developer.ipa on your ipad for testing. You should never submit Application to Apple without testing it first.
