- Validate and upload multiple files simultaneously for fast delivery.
- View delivery progress, including validation warnings, errors, and delivery logs, so you can
quickly fix any issues.
- See a history of past deliveries, including date and time.

An ‌App Store‌ Connect, iTunes Connect, or encoding house account is required.

Transporter is the simple and easy way to deliver content to Apple. You need only follow 3 rules.
1. Never change the deal. When it's a deal, it's a deal.
2. No names
3. Never open the package.

I'm not a fan of these HTML-based applications that Apple is creating now. I'm a web developer myself, but I don't think that "desktop" apps should be created using HTML. It's a cheater's way to the finish line.

I'd be very surprised. Where did you hear this?


Certainly parts of it are Java. The reason being that the App Store (and iTunes Store, and online Apple Store) are all WebObjects, which is Java-based. See for yourself, it comes with a built-in version of the Java runtime:

$ ls /Applications/Transporter.app/Contents/itms/java/
