App packager for the Mac App Store.

Overview

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.

What's new in App Wrapper

Version 4.0:
  • Designed for macOS Big Sur: With a finely tuned engine to be used when debugging apps, performing nearly all the same tasks as a build, but in the quickest time possible, adding minimal impact to App Wrapper's customers workflows.
  • Handsome Interface: Working with Tim Parnell from Strawberry Software, the interface was crafted to save time by improving accessibility, grouping things logically, and attempting to make the most needed options as available and clear as we could.
  • Direct and built-in plist editor: Now more precise and custom edit to the Info.plist or Entitlements can be made directly in App Wrapper, saving time and easing the workflow.
  • Dynamic Text: Replaces special constants in fields, plists and entitlements, using information from the application, signing certificate and more.
  • SF Symbols Support: A built-in rasterizer (on macOS Big Sur) which can convert SF Symbols into a multi-representation TIFF images, allowing SF Symbols to be used on older versions of the macOS.
  • DropDMG support: App Wrapper 4 now works with C-Command’s DropDMG as well as Araelium’s DMG Canvas.
  • Submit Mac Apps directly to the App Store: With App Wrapper 4, App Store Submission is now as easy as a checkbox in the Packing Page.
Major Improvements over App Wrapper 3
  • Improved Performance: The fastest we’ve clocked App Wrapper processing itself was 300 ms (0.3 seconds), which includes analyzing the application, modifying it and doing a complete code sign of all the nested executables in order.
  • New Icon Editor: Allows icons to be created from a single image (using templates) or from multiple different sized images. App Wrapper 4 now uses ICNSmini in its icon editor to compress ICNS files down to 1/3rd of their size.
  • Unified Progress: Wrapping, Archiving and Apple Submission is all done in one single window, making it easy to see exactly what’s going on and where.
  • Checking engine: Redesigned to cover more ground and to provide clearer information when a problem is discovered.
  • Identity Selector: Reimagined many times over to provide a clear overview of the certificates and their status.
  • Xojo Integration: Overhauled scripting system allows for Xojo scripts to be directly copy/pasted into the Xojo IDE and for options to be configured from the Xojo IDE.

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
