Ever get frustrated with submitting your apps/IAP/Game Center stuff through iTunes Connect? Yes, who hasn’t, indeed. Check out this piece for some help with saving your sanity:
… iTunes Connect is, of course, a critical piece of the Apple developer puzzle. However, inputting any serious amount of content requires more than a little bit of patience, good luck, and praying to the powers-that-be that iTunes Connect doesn’t kick you out before you’ve uploaded your marketing assets and copy.
As the person managing the localisation of our apps and App Store copy, I spend a not-inconsiderable amount of time dealing with iTunes Connect and you can easily lose an afternoon in the system when you’re refreshing up to 15 screenshots, the release notes and marketing copy in each localisation. It’s a similar story for the Mac – huge Retina screenshots that can only be uploaded one at a time make for a time-consuming and often infuriating process.
However, there’s a relatively little-known tool available from Apple that can ease your pain, allowing you to retrieve, pre-flight and upload your app metadata…
Ever notice the ‘Transporter User Guide’ link under ‘Deliver Your Apps’ on iTunes Connect? Yep, that’s the relatively little-known tool.
But there’s some extra niftiness here:
Whilst Transporter has been a great improvement to our workflow, I’ve been itching to improve it further. To get things started I’ve built a small app that allows you to avoid both the Terminal and iTunes Connect itself to submit your iTMSP packages. It’s called Connecter, and the source is available on GitHub…
Worth checking out for lowering the pain level on your store management, yep.
