Apple recently notified us of a policy change and is now requiring a unique iOS Developer Account for each individual or organization submitting apps to the App Store. Because of this, we will no longer be able to administer our clients’ apps through the SwebApps Developer Account. Each customer must set up an iOS Developer Account, with a $99 annual fee paid directly to Apple. This change requires extra steps and additional work for our team to process, submit and update your app. We are absorbing this extra work and associated cost, and have elected not to pass on any of the cost to our customers. Our fees are not changing.
The good news is that creating an iOS Developer Account will allow all SwebApps customers to charge for their iPhone apps if they so choose. You will have access to Apple’s app download information and analytics. Additionally, your organization/business name will be displayed in the App Store, rather than Sweb Development.
