    Hi,

    How can I upload my first and new iphone web app to apple store ?

    Do I have to use the Application Loader binary upload?

    My web app its ASP code with javascript and xml with connection to SQL server DataBase. It's hosted in my web server.
    I can't zip the folder and upload to Apple, because of the connection to a secure DB that is hosted in my web server.

    I appreciate your help.:apple:

    Thx.

    The App Store is for native apps, not web apps. Web apps, by their very nature, exist on the web.

    Exactly!

    You could throw it all in to a single web view so that it's technically a native app, but I doubt Apple would accept it if there's absolutely no extra functionality than a plain web app would provide.

    Dubz on that. Apple just simply doesn't like webapps in their appstore. That's what Safari/etc are for. What you could do, is provide an application, which contains your webview, and do some other NATIVE stuff around it :)
    Then it shouldn't be a problem.
