I am following the steps in the beta version to build the test "Launch" app, but the digital app signing tool doesn't have ios tab when I go to use it. Is this a bug or am I missing something?
Solved! Go to Solution.
It looks like you're using the web-based signing tool for DPS App Builder. Have you downloaded the signing tool from the DPS beta resources page? (www.adobe.com/go/dps_beta_resources) Make sure that you are using a Mac computer and that you have downloaded the signing tool from the Apps section of the Portal.
Sorry, Louise. I must have been tired when I wrote that message. I think you were using the signing tool used to sign Android apps for DPS. The signing tool is available in the Apps section of the Portal, in the upper right corner. You should have a signing tool that looks like this:
Are you using a Mac or a Windows computer?
OK . . . That answers it. I'm assuming that means I can't build an app for my iPad on my PC and that I'll have to switch to my Macbook Pro for an iOS app. Does that also mean I can't create the articles on my PC (Indesign)?
The only thing you need a mac for is to sign the file you download from app builder. Everything else you can do on a PC.

The requirement to have a Mac to build from iOS is due to the supported platforms for Apple's Application Loader: it's Mac only. Even if we did add support for signing your iOS app on Windows you would still need a Mac to submit it to Apple.
