Export Your Project

Ready to publish your app to the App Store or you just want a stand alone app for a device?

First, set the app icon, name, and version number in App Overview. Read more about that here. Below is a little more detail on the Company/Individual Name and Bundle ID.

Company/Individual Name

If this is your first time exporting, we suggest you to enter your name or the name of your company. We take the name so we can generate a suggested unique Bundle ID for you.

Bundle ID

The Bundle ID is what Apple uses to uniquely identify apps. Bundle IDs take the form of com.[company/individual name].[app name]. You are free to change it if you need to but once you publish your app to the App Store, you can no longer change the Bundle ID. If you export two apps with different Bundle IDs, they will show up as two different apps on your device. If they have the same Bundle ID, then the newer app will replace the old one.

Publishing Your Project to the App Store

Once you have you've made sure that your project is running on the simulator and on a device real device, you're ready to upload a build to the App Store.
