The iHate iTunes™ Connect™ thread



  • Apple really excels at making me angry and frustrated with iOS apps distribution. Now, after February 26th and getting rid of TestFlight, this process has become even more stupid and frustrating with iTunes Connect™1

    For some unknown reason you can only have one email account2 associated with any iTunes Connect™ account. So, if I or any of the many app developing companies wish to access several client accounts, you'll need one email address for each one. GREAT!

    Great, now I can access iTunes Connect™ so I can upload an app so the client can play with it. Where is the upload button?

    WTF APPLE, WHY THE FUCKING HELL DO I NEED A FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT MAC TO UPLOAD A STUPID FILE?!?

    [1] Only by having the iTunes brand you already know it's going to be one big WTF after another. [2] I'm not too sure if it has to be an email account or an Apple developer account which would be far bigger :wtf:

    It's the Apple Walled Garden; play by their rules, or git oot!

    Time for a Hackintosh. Possibly in a VM? Not sure if that would work, but I guess you only need it for a couple of applications so if graphics or something are screwed it's OK



  • I'll have to bother one of our iOS devs to do this shit.


  • SockDev

    The choice is clear.

    Just go. Leave the walled garden alone.

    The walked garden isn't the problem; the problem is the walled garden :stuck_out_tongue:

    In that case, use the old favourite and just throw that shit over the wall. Let someone stuck in there deal with forking it into the rose bed.

    Well, you always had to use a Mac to develop apps for Apple.
    Technically, you could work around it, but then you would be in violation of the Apple developer license.

    That was for me the reason to stop wanting to be an iOS developer, and switch to Android instead.

    Apple would have huge antitrust issues if Google hadn't taken most of their market share



  • Bad workman blames their tools ;)


  • SockDev

    true, true.

    a funny workman does too, but actually gets the job done right.



  • Sometimes the tools really suck.


  • SockDev

    see: Discourse.

    Also vacuums

    Swype is not one of those tools.

    Get off my lawn.


  • SockDev

    have you ever tried to use swype with paws?

    no?

    then you don't get to say it is a good tool!

    </blakey>



  • Sounds like you're using the wrong tool, then.


  • SockDev

    know a better one for typing with paws? :-P



  • Wire from claw to pad?



  • You should read this book: http://www.amazon.com/Your-Next-Door-Neighbor-Dragon-Parsons/dp/0806527595

    Specifically, the chapter about the guy who lives in a trailer and believes he's an "otherkin" of an elf.


  • BINNED

    Voice typing, one of the minimalist keyboards you can get that work with gestures rather than pressing a small area on a qwerty layout, realising you're not really a fox and taking off the fusruit

    One thing I will say about Apple, they know how to keep a core set of users engaged with their products. And if you want to sell to those users, through those hoops you must jump...



  • iUsers are all Tools.
