Apple today updated its App Store Connect app designed for developers, introducing a new icon that is a more complex version of the original simple blue and white "A" design.

New icon on the right

App Store Connect is used by developers for iOS app management. It provides info on app statuses, offers data on app performance and sales, and lets developers access and respond to reviews.

Along with an updated icon, the new version of the app released today introduces an option for setting up internal TestFlight beta testing, with up to 100 members of a developer's team can test beta builds of an app. Full release notes for the update are below:
With this update, you can now:
- Set up internal TestFlight beta testing
- Add up to 100 members of your team to test beta builds of your app
- Edit test details for beta builds, view build activity and status, and expire builds
- Answer required export compliance questions
Developers can download App Store Connect from the App Store. [Direct Link]

Finally a good update for this app. The only thing useful was checking for sales. It's nice that I can just add someone to testing during a conversation rather than remember to do it at home.

Ah, yes, App Store Connect — just another of those wonderful developer services that that 30% pays for. :rolleyes:

/s, if it wasn’t obvious

Its an optical illusion. The bars appear to look like bars but can also look like grooves. Abysmal

my goodness… 16 comments most of which are about “an icon “… Is that where we are with Apple now… an icon is the lead in...and only a few comments on the new testing services?..wow.... maybe Apple HAS lost some of its mojo.

You can tell there aren’t a lot of old people working at Apple anymore especially in the human interface department. There is something very immature about the design choices, yes, there are a lot of softer tones and lot of the innovation just feels very half done.

I’m sorry to say it, but the Steve Jobs final say when it comes to fit and finish just seems to no longer be there. It’s just these kids (we all saw them during WWDC 2020) who obviously had there teen year motives of I’m going to work at Apple one day and implement my idea.

If I had my way, everything is going right back Panther style fit and finish. There really has not been much need for a paint job on OS X. Sure, the pinstripes were a bit too much, as well as the brush metal, I think Mavericks kinda got it just right. Then all these dull uninteresting flat nonsense started creeping in.

I really would like to Scott Forstalls opinions on the matter. I suspect he likely doesn’t much interest in the user interfaces these days.
