Overview of this book

This book will take you through the process of building cross-platform, native UI applications for the mobile from scratch. You will learn how to develop apps, how to use GPS, cameras and photos and how to build socially connected apps. You will also learn how to package them for submission to the App Store and Google Play. This cookbook takes a pragmatic approach to creating applications in JavaScript from putting together basic UIs, to handling events and implementation of third party services such as Twitter, Facebook and Push notifications. The book shows you how to integrate datasources and server APIs, and how to use local databases. The topics covered will guide you to use Appcelerator Studio tools for all the mobile features such as Geolocation, Accelerometer, animation and more. You’ll also learn about Alloy, the Appcelerator MVC framework for rapid app development, and how to transfer data between applications using URLSchemes, enabling other developers to access and launch specific parts of your app. Finally, you will learn how to register developer accounts and publish your very own applications on the App Store and Google Play.

Installing iOS developer certificates and provisioning profiles

There are two types of certificates required to build your applications, both for debugging on a device and for App Store distribution. The first is your development certificate.

The second type is the application's provisioning profile. This profile certificate is both application-specific and release-specific. This means that you need to create a separate profile for each state of the application that you wish to release (the most common being development and distribution).

In this recipe, we will go through the process of creating and installing our developer certificate, and then creating and using an application-specific provisioning profile in Studio.
