NativeConnect 1.0

Vadim Shpakovski (via Daniel Jalkut):

NativeConnect is a desktop client for App Store Connect. It allows you to edit metadata, generate promo codes, and work with customer reviews in the native and modern 100% AppKit interface.

If you are tired of signing in to App Store Connect, digging through its slow navigation or configuring multiple filters for sales and trends, you should greatly benefit from our app.

Basic features are free; uploading changes, generating promo codes, and replying to reviews are $100/year.

Unfortunately, the public App Store Connect API is too limited to provide all this functionality. Hopefully the API isn’t as slow as the site itself.

Hopefully someday they’ll find a way to send you a notification when an uploaded build has finished processing and can be added to an app version.

Or (and here's a crazy idea) - just let you add it already and continue as if it has already been processed.
When the processing is finished, the store could just continue with the publishing process.
If there is a problem - they could notify and remove the 'pending' build from your app.

@Rob Yes, that’s definitely how the store should work. But I’m not holding my breath for Apple to improve that flow, so I’m hoping NativeConnect can do something about it.

Hi Michael, could you please be more specific? App Store Connect would send an email notification when the uploaded build processing is completed. You need an additional push notification, correct?

@Vadim I have never received an e-mail notification when processing is completed, nor have other developers I’ve talked with. I think maybe it only sends them for iOS builds, not Mac?

@Michael True, it’s iOS-only. I haven’t released an updated to the Mac App Store for too long. It’s all clear now, thanks!
