  7. Hi are using WordPress for your site platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my own.
    Do you need any coding knowledge to make your own blog?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  8. Apptopia SDK is where?

  9. I’m sure a lot has changed since this post (or maybe not??). It’d be great to get an update on this issue.

  10. Where is the plan b sdk please? Can’t find it on your site?

  11. Hi, good to know. Sad that nothing has happened since the article was written. One question regarding the following: “You transfer your account from an individual to a business account (the business being the one you just incorporated with the buyer)”. That means that the company account (99$) as opposed to the enterprise account (299$) suffice correct?


    • Hey Fredrik,

      I just updated this – thanks for the friendly reminder. Also, yes we are only talking about $99 accounts – there is no need for an enterprise account!


  12. Hi
    is the SDK for transfer of current users still available for your members?
    am looking at purchasing an app that has a good number of users so don’t want to lose them :)

  13. Referring to item;

    3. You can take your app down and re-list it…

    Can the app be re-listed with the same app name when transferring to another Dev Account?

  14. Hey there! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone4. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this problem.
    If you have any suggestions, please share. Cheers!

  15. Hi there! I am planning to start as an solo developer , need opinion wether iOS is better or android as a startup, as I understand there is a lot of investment in ios ….

  16. Good news! Apple announced today that App transfer is a single button click.

  18. I’m enrolled for a course called History of Medieval Music. I’ve
    had AP theory in high school, but quite a few of the people in the class are music majors who have had advanced
    theory. Is medieval music complicated stuff or what?

  19. This is a very nice article regarding the transfer process for mobile apps … similar to very domain name transfers and transactions!

  20. I also heard that you cannot transfer apps that have recurring payments (like magazine newsstand subscriptions), any idea if this is true?

  21. This utility overwrites your data thirty-five times, scrambles the original file name, and truncates the file
    size to nothing before Permanent Eraser finally unlinks it from the system.
    Also, that whole Determining Gapless playback process might take awhile in your new library,
    too. Flash is an interactive platform that has a powerful design and animation tool along
    with a dynamic scripting engine, bitmap rendering, as well as advanced video and
    audio playback.

  22. Hi there,

    My question is about changing developer platforms mid-stream.

    My agency has been releasing a magazine-style app (iOS App Store, not Newsstand) for a client via Adobe DPS suite for a few months, but now we’re changing to a different development software, away from DPS and to a 3rd party company with their own platform/software for publishing the content.

    My question is how to do this seamlessly. Is there a way to keep the app name/metadata and simply upload a new binary to that account? Or does the app have to be pulled and resubmitted with the new platform? Would we have to create a new app in it’s place (and call it “Client Magazine 2.0)?

    Obviously, the best end-user experience would be to simply “update” the app when getting a notification, and that it replaces the DPS version of the App-Zine with our new 3rd party version, while the user can tell it’s a little different, they won’t have to download a different/new app instead and have the old, outdated version on their iPad simultaneously.

    I’m not a developer, i just play one on TV. Any input/feedback would be helpful. Thanks!

    • Hi Andy, If your app has recurring payments/auto renewing subscriptions it is not possible to change developer accounts. You literally have to switch the old app off, delete it form the app store, then submit a new binary for the new app.

      You will lose subscribers, feedback etc. It’s a bad deal from Apple, who are usually so forward thinking.

      It locks magazines with their old developers, or they have to start from scratch.

      We work with hundreds of magazines and have ways to help you migrate. Feel free to contact us via

      If your app does meets the criteria for transfer, then its just a click in iTunesConnect. But your old developer will need to do this, and the chances are they won’t want to push ‘their’ app to a new developer. Happy to help you on this if you want to make contact.

  23. Hi Jonathon,

    Any update on the apptopia policy? – Apple is now allowing the transfer of individual apps to another developer account



  24. Yes Exactly, Apple finally allows developers to sell the apps they’ve developed or developing to other developers. And that’s really a good thing for all the iOS developers out there.

  25. great issues altogether, you just won a emblem new reader.

    What may you suggest about your publish that you just made a few
    days ago? Any certain?

  26. I have a legal question regarding this article. If an individual developer (sole proprietor) forms a small company and subsequently lists his apps as copyrighted under that company (MyCompany, LLC), but those apps are still listed “By John Doe” (insert personal name) on iTunes, will the law recognize that the apps are now a business asset and not a personal asset?

    I understand that the smart thing to do is transfer from an individual to company account via Apple, but this can take months, and I’m curious of what the law will look at in the meantime to determine the ownership of the IP – the “By John Doe” or the “Copyright MyCompany, LLC” in the iTunes Store.

  27. I you should not even have a clue how I finished up these, however As i believed it submit is once decent. I don’t fully understand who you may well be but obviously you’re able to a well-known blogger as you aren’t definitely Cheers!
