54% of Mac users prefer to download apps from the Mac App Store. App Wrapper simplifies the process of setting App Store specific entitlements, checking some rejection reasons, bundling resources, signing the app, creating the archive and uploading it to the App Store.

  • ⭐️ Quickly configure App Store entitlements & usage reasons.
  • ⭐️ Check for some potential rejection reasons.
  • ⭐️ Packing supports the required Apple Installer format.
  • ⭐️ Provisioning profiles for Apple's online functionality.

Distributing your app via a website still requires several steps, harden-runtime, packing, Apple's "inspection". Once again, App Wrapper can save you time by making it easy to configure and handling these steps for you.

  • ⭐️ Easily configure Harden-Runtime entitlements & "Privacy" usage messages.
  • ⭐️ Check for some potential Notarization issues.
  • ⭐️ Supports multiple archive formats, Zip,  Installer, DropDMG and DMG Canvas.
  • ⭐️ Include additional files in Zip or DMG files.
