CodeTown ::: a software developer's community

I've written a couple apps for the iPhone and put them on my own iPhone using a Provisional Development Certificate, but I'm attempting to get a Distribution Certificate so Apple can review them. I'm following their online instructions and I have completed the step to create a Certificate Signing Request, but when I get to the next step - "Submitting a Certificate Signing Request for Approval" the instructions say to navigate to 'Certificates' -> 'Distribution' and click the 'Add Certificate' button. I have searched the page as thoroughly as I can and I cannot see the button. Any help here is appreciated.

I'm not sure why you can't see the button, but if you already have a distribution certificate in your account you can't get another.

If you created one for ad-hoc distribution, use that one for submitting to the App Store by creating a new distribution provisioning profile.
First it turned out the 'Add Certificate' button the docs referred to were not on that page, but if you select the "how to " tab it was at the bottom of that page. By that time I was confused enough I started from scratch, and what you pointed out - if you have one distribution certificate you can't get another - bunged me up for a while. So I decided to start from scratch a third time, starting with getting a development certificate, and somehow I got things so screwed up I can't even compile and install working versions on my iPhone. I've worked on the mac 3 times and each time it's just been incredibly frustrating.

HowStuffWorks "How Cloud Computing Works"

In a cloud computing system, there's a significant workload shift. Local computers no longer have to do all the heavy lifting when it comes to running applications. The network of computers that make up the cloud handles them instead. Hardware and software demands on the user's side decrease. The only thing the user's computer needs to be able to run is the cloud computing system's interface software, which can be as simple as a Web browser, and the cloud's network takes care of the rest...
