- [John] Hi, I'm John Nastos and I'd like to welcome you to distributing IOS applications through the app store. Creating an app is a massive undertaking with sometimes countless hours of planning and coding, but the process doesn't end there. You still have to get your product submitted to Apple and through the review process before the world can enjoy all of your hard work. Whether your app is already built and you're ready to take those final steps of getting it onto the store or maybe you don't have an app yet but are curious about the process that it takes to get an app into the store.
This is a perfect course for you. I'll start by introducing you to Apple's app store review and human interface guidelines. I'll also talk about getting your icons and launch images correctly formatted. We'll dive into iTunes Connect and learn how to manage your application in Apple's web interface. I'll also talk about creating screenshots and app preview videos including automating some of your workflow. Then I'll take you through the whole process of building, uploading, and submitting your app as well as explain what the review process will be like.
Now, let's get your app on the store and into the hands of your future customers and fans.
