I have recently built two apps with Indesign, DPS and Viewer Builder – one single-folio and one multi-folio.
In both cases I want to do an update on the iPad screen icon that I originally provided via Viewer Builder, and I wonder how straightforward this process is?
Can I do this without re-building the folios?
Is there any difference in the two cases?
The folios are working fine, so I don't want to do "too much" work. That is, to accidentally delete or ruin anything.
I had changed my icon designs when I added the apps in iTunes Connect, so the icons in App Store are correct.
I recognize that the correct icons display on the iPad screen while installing the apps, but they change to the old/wrong ones once the installation is finished.
You can do that without rebuilding the folios.
Highlight viewer from viewer builder and click on edit.Click on Next button unless you come to splash icons screen, change icons with new ones and build new viewer.
Test viewer on Ipad before you submit to Apple for approval.
If your app is already approved then re-submit to Apple for approval again as a new version of app.
Thanks for your answer!
Two more questions:
1. So they really has to be re-approved again even though it's a minor change? Does it still take 7-14 days??
2. The apps are both approved, but they are not marketed yet. If we decide to start spreading the word before they re-approved, will users who have already installed the app get a push notice about the update?
1. Yes the app have to be re-submit to Apple, so "re-approved". Usually it take the same time or bit less, all is on Apple hand as usual
2. When the new version app will be approved and released in Apple Store, users will not receive a push notifications (this is only for the folio); USers will see when opening the Apple Store app, in the update section that your app have a new version they can update.
Or if you publish a new folio that have been created with a newest version of Folio Builder/Producer, they will get a push notification asking them to update their app in order to download the new folio
