What is App Wrapper for Mac

App Wrapper helps you save time, effort, and money when preparing for deployment: one click to codesign, sandbox, package apps, Notarize or Submit to the Apple App Store.

Let App Wrapper take the chore out of application deployment. Once configured App Wrapper makes it super easy to prepare applications for App Store submission or web site distribution. App Wrapper takes care of adding the required App Store properties, creating high-resolution icons, code signing the application and its components, correcting the permissions, placing the app into an App Sandbox and packaging it in a signed installer or creating a zip file.

To see see all of the amazing things App Wrapper can do to help speed your development workflow, visit the developer's Web site.

I tried version 4 and found it very useful. I was trying to publish to the App Store a C++ app with a QT interface and Python modules (hence an embedded Python distri). I wrote scripts to prepare/sign/harden/sandbox/ the bundle but was stuck with iTunes Connect errors I did not understand. App Wrapper 4 helped me identify problems beyond the classical checks with the "codesign" and "spctl" commands. This is a first impression but it is very positive since I already saved a lot of time. I will continue using that excellent tool. The developer is super responsive and very helpful. Thanks Sam!

AppWrapper does it's job and it does it well. Code signing apps is simple and easy with AppWrapper - I don't have to mess with command line.

Well since version 3.8 it stopped loading my apple dev certificates tried even to make a few from scratch using Keychain Access but same issue, it loads as soon created but relaunching the application give same results,= no valid certificates... so trashed since the dev doesn't seem to know the reasons why this happens. Very sad because was a really nice soft.. Half a star for 3.8 version because of this drop of functionality, totally useless for me now. PS 3.7.2 STILL works as expected, so there's no faulty behaviour in my files/system

Must have tool for any Xojo developer submitting apps to the Apple App store. Not only is App Wrapper perfect and user friendly, the developer responds immediately. Sandboxing made simple, thanks so much...

I'd like to thank the developer of this software for his excellent tool, as well as sincere and thoughtful support. Apple doesn't make it easy on people who don't use Xcode to develop. I've put off for years releasing my stuff on the App store because it was just too much hassle, but App Wrapper really makes it pretty painless. I still wasn't without a couple of bumps in the road, but Sam provided excellent support, and I got my single issue figured out quickly. Now, my apps are currently in review on the App store! $50 seems steep, but I think it is worth it. I don't mind paying it just for the support, let alone the software. Thanks Sam!

Not all my apps are written with XCode so uploading them to the Mac App Store requires additional tweaking and some interaction with the terminal. If I forget something or if I do something the wrong way then my app could be rejected. Here is where App Wrapper is very helpful because it takes care of most of the stuff I need to do to my apps to get them into the Mac App Store. App Wrapper works as advertized and saved me already a lot of time when publishing or updating my apps in the Mac App Store. Note: The current version is 2.0.1
