Apple App Store

Half a million applications, 8 billion downloads...need we say more?

Generally, MoSync runtimes are completely conformant with Apple's
guidelines, so you should have no trouble getting your application in
the Apple App Store. Read our tips for Developing iPhone Applications, particularly the note about "Exit" buttons.

To build and distribute an application for anything else than the simulator you will need to join Apple's Developer Program.

To successfuly build an iOS application with the MoSync SDK, you will need to install the MoSync SDK for OS X on an Apple Mac running Snow Leopard (OS X version 10.6). You will also need Xcode 3.2.4 with the iPhone OS SDK.

Let us know here if you find any problems and how you get on.

Hi Sam, thanks for asking;

Hi Sam,

thanks for asking; I've spent a few weeks adding widgets and push screens etc. I hope to repost the app this week later, I'll let you know.

... a pity, an app that was 100% - mosync-compatible iPhone / Android, now ruined to look the way apple wants...

Best regards,

Thank you for the advice -

Thank you for the advice - I'll try to make it more "visual" following your suggestions, and hope that'll do the trick.

I never expected they were going to be so picky, assumed if the app did nothing wrong, or dangerous, etc., would be ok. Actually I think it should, really don't like their policy.

Best regards,

jaime

I would add a title bar at

I would add a title bar at the top, your app feels very "naked" without it. Try using the number picker widget any numerical value instead of edit boxes. I don't know how many "screens" your app uses, but using the stack scren to "push" the configuration screen would look nice.

The workaround with maFile...-functions worked. The app-update went online.

Hello, my app just got

Hello,

my app just got rejected (including the appeal that confirmed the rejection). The only meaningful thing they said is:

"We found that your app does not provide enough native iOS functionality to be appropriate for the App Store."

While basic in appearance, the app performs a very useful task for astronomers; it monitors the behaviour of a remote observatory waking up the astronomer in case of problems - I even set up a short video explaining its functionality for them (at Apple's request):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-oq5ziOOcc&feature=plcp

It's been developed with Mosync SDK and using NativeUI. I really do not understand the rejection and their message about "not enough native iOS functionality..." has raised my suspicions.

Do you have any advice? I really need this app published!

Thanks in advance,

jaime

Good spot, I'm going to get this logged and looked at ASAP - I can't imagine it is a big change.

Hallo, I've got a rejection

Hallo,

I've got a rejection for an update for one app. We are using data stores for downloaded images. Our update was rejected, because the app downloaded 2.5 Mbyte of data. The data was stored using data stores (maOpenStore, ...) within the .../Documents/-folder.  With iCloud-backup Apple added some guidelines:

https://developer.apple.com/icloud/documentation/data-storage/

Could you add some new flags to the maOpenStore-function? This data should stored within the .../Library/Caches/-folder. I think, many other developers will get the same problems. 

At this time we try to get a workaround using the maFile...-functions.

Greetings from Berlin, Matthias
