Launch App Studio Factory (located in the QuarkXPress application folder). The App Studio Factory window displays.


App Studio Factory window

1. An App Studio app template determines the functionality and general layout of an app. You can choose from a number of different app templates. To see a description of an app template, click its icon at the top of the window. When you know which app template you want to use, select it and then click Choose.

2. To authenticate your app, drag your App Studio app certificate to the area on the lower left. This will automatically fill several of the App Studio Factory fields for the app, including the app icon and the Bundle ID.

3. The Sections list on the left includes an entry for each type of app information you can customize. When you click a section, all of the configurable elements in that section display in the Settings area on the right. Click each of these sections, one by one, and customize anything you want to customize. For pictures, you can view a large preview by clicking the magnifying glass icon. To replace a picture, simply drag a replacement PNG file onto the picture in App Studio Factory. The size (in pixels) that each picture needs to be displays beneath the picture.

· Some fields are not editable. For example, the Bundle ID value is determined by the certificate. This is by design.

· The icon in the App Icon field is automatically scaled down to fit the requirements of the template. You can replace this icon with an optimized version if you want.

· You can display all of the fields and resources for the app by selecting all of the items in the Sections list.

4. Some templates are available with strings that have been translated into multiple languages. To include multiple languages in your app, click Localizations on the upper left, then check the languages you want to be included in the app. When the operating system matches one of these languages, the app will display the strings in that language.

· If you include (for example) French resources in your app, but your issues are not available in French, your customers may be unhappy. So you might want to check only the language that matches the language of the issues you are selling.

5. To test the app in the iOS Simulator application, click Export to Simulator.

· Although your app can display issues in the iOS Simulator, it cannot pull pricing data from the App Store. Consequently, pricing for issues probably will not match the pricing you have set up in iTunes Connect.
