Uploading the app to Apple

The ¬†application is completed and the process to upload it to Apple is underway, however, we are running into some ¬†problems when generating an “app” and and “ipa” file.

We have been researching cases presented online, but it looks as if more research needs to be made. Don is considering contacting Apple to seek advice.


Orientation Support


As some of you may know, there have been some concerns over the orientation support for the app. The question of whether or not it is required to include a landscape orientation is something Chris and I have been looking into. Apparently there was a situation involving an app that got rejected because it did not include a landscape mode. Well based on my research, I have determined that this exactly isn’t the case. Though it is strongly recommended by Apple to include various orientations, it is not necessarily a requirement. So long as both variants of the orientation are supported, ex. portrait up and portrait upside down; an app can be published. The following picture applies to both iPhone and iPad.
