Validation Mac Store Receipts

Post by andyh1234 » Sun Nov 21, 2010 1:08 pm

Im just at the final stage before I can submit to the new app store, and have hit one last problem!

The requirements state no nag screens, trial restrictions etc, but Apple have implements a receipt system that you can check when the app runs to check it is valid for that computer.

They even give all the code to do it 'inline' rather than calling apis as this apparently is less open to hackers, but the code is in C (I assume) and I have no idea how to convert it to livecode.

Im guessing this will be a common issue for rev programmers, so hopefully rev can add a function in the future to do this?

Thanks

Andy

I already let runrev support know about this on November 7th.

I got an reply back that was being passed to the development team, so they at least runrev knows about. Hopefully they will add something to support it in the very near future.

Good luck with your submissions.

(And I sorry in advance that I may not visit here often enough to comment back in and decent time frame.)

This dates back to November. Any updated info on 4.5.3 or 4.6 for validating the receipts?

By the way ... Obleo provides a rpMAS external for App store receipt validation.
