An iTunes Connect screenshot management workflow

Ugh – iTunes Connect is really annoying to use when it comes to screenshots. There’re some third party tools out there, but it was still too hands-on for my workflow.

So I wrote a little script that does the stuff I want. I have a Sketch document that exports all the screenshots, and the script updates the iTunes Connect metadata XML appropriately.

In case it’s useful to anyone else:

Usage:

  1. Work on screenshots

  2. Setup:

    alias iTMSTransporter="/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Applications/Application\ Loader.app/Contents/MacOS/itms/bin/iTMSTransporter"

  3. Grab latest ITMS data:

    iTMSTransporter -m lookupMetadata -u [email protected] -p password -vendor_id APPVENDORID -destination YourApp.itmsp

  4. Open up the metadata.xml and remove the fields you don’t want to change – this is probably going to be the currently-live version, and maybe the product info at the bottom.

  5. Export all the screenshots into the itmsp package folder

  6. Run this tool (update_itmsp_screenshots.php YourApp.itmsp)

  7. Check that everything looks okay

  8. Verify

    iTMSTransporter -m verify -u [email protected] -p password -f YourApp.itmsp

  9. Upload

    iTMSTransporter -m upload -u [email protected] -p password -f YourApp.itmsp
