Creating App ID’s
The App ID is a unique identifier Apple uses to identify your App from the tens of thousands of Apps in the iTunes App Store. There are ten’s of thousands of applications in the iTunes App Store with more in constant development. Part of your registration process is to assign your App an ID, called the App ID. The App ID (New!) will be connected to your certificate and to the development and publication profiles you generate. You control the name of the App, but behind the scenes, Apple associates it an unique ID, called a Bundle Seed ID. Apple will know what your App is when it comes time for you to submit your App to iTunes.
Create an App ID
- Open your Web browser, and then go to the App ID page on the iPhone Developer site:
- Click the New App ID button.
- Enter a new App name you can find easily, such as WorldlyWordSearch; the name has to be all one word.
- Enter a Bundle Seed ID.
- The convention is to reverse your Web site address and add your Apps name at the end. For example, com.pearson.worldlywordsearch; the name has to be all one word.
- Click OK.
