    • Technically, yes. You can create a backup of Dapp (that gets saved to iTunes file sharing Dapp app folder). You then copy this backup to the desktop and connect your other phone. Drag the backup to the Dapp app folder on the 2nd phone. Then within your 2nd phone, you can restore the backup.

      Admittedly this won’t allow you to transfer a specific design, but it does allow you to at least move Dapp and all your data to a new phone.

  • Cliff,

    I love Dapp, it’s a great app. Is there any work around for XIB files. I’m finding it very hard to build the app in Dapp then export to XCODE only to be stuck into that interface. Once you start coding interface changes are sometime necessary, any suggestions?

    • Yep, do the interface changes in code ;). It’s what I do (I never use Interface Builder) and Dapp is a great way to learn how to do this.

      The long answer is to bug Apple to release the specs on XIB files so I can automatically generate these for you using Dapp. I’ve actually officially made this as a feature request from Apple.. so all I can do is wait and hope they release it.

  • G’day mate, I bought ur great application and now I have got a problem exporting the code on Xcode 4.1 because it has different folders and sub-folders than the one on your youtube video tutorial. Can you help plz thank you

  • Hi Cliff, i think Dapp is great!i have just some problems with the search bar…i have put a table view in a tab and the search bar in another tab…why the search bar doesn’t work?!?!?

    • Dapp will setup the Search Bar for you. However, the search bar object by itself still needs to be hooked up to a delegate which allows you to respond to events such as the user entering text in the search bar. (Check out UISearchBarDelegate class reference in the Apple Docs)

      It is then your responsibility to respond to these events. Part of the reason for this is that a search bar could be linked up to a large variety of data sources (such as a database, text file, arrays etc…). But basically all you are doing is taking what the user is typing in the search bar and handling this ‘search string’ yourself.

      In a way this allows the UISearchBar to be incredibly flexible, so I can see why Apple did it this way. I might see if I can write a tutorial on this. 😉

  • I thought I saw a reference to SQLite on the site previously. Now I cannot seem to find it. Am I imagining things??

    • No you’re not mistaken ;). It was actually in one of the original tutorials that I had this grandiose plan to write a complete project + tutorial which included sqlite. Something that I never completed :S.

  • Hi Cliff,
    Thanks for ur wonderful n useful app, I was wondering how can I can create a zoomable image in my app.
    Cheers

  • I also sure would love to see something on how to use sqlite with dapp output, as well as more documentation around the table settings menu…for example, what does the selected row and selected section options in that edit tableview menu do? also (feature request) would love to add actions to table view items 🙂 thanks

    • Hmmm… will do!… I’ll add sqlite tutorial as one of the requests.

      Yeah, the table settings got greatly expanded with the last update. Drill down in the ‘sections’ property in tableviews to access a ton of options specific to cells and sections. Also, if you drill down to a specific cell (row), you can link up actions to that cell.

      Selected row and selected section are mainly used for mockups, it’s simply the initial selected section/row.

  • Ah, thanks for the selected row explanation. And silly me, just found the table action bit in the drilldown as well. Thanks for the quick reply. Great product, i really enjoy it.

  • Hi, I’ve been reading about DAPP, but have not bought it yet. Before I purchase DAPP, can you please tell me 1) Will it make games, such as a casion type slot machine games??? 2) I would like to make an app where a person can upload a photo into the app and fill in the appropriate lines about themeself, can this be done???

    • HI Kristy :).

      In terms of a casino type slot machine game, Dapp could create the layout and all the UIObjects for you, but the code to spin the ‘slot machine’ would need to be done by yourself. Generally with games you don’t want to be using UIKit anyways and should be looking at other solutions. I personally used Cocos2d when I first started making games, it’s worth checking out ;).

      As for an app where a person can upload a photo, as before, you could use Dapp to create the layout and all the UIObjects for you, and also create the button to upload a photo and the textview where they can fill in the appropriate lines for themselves. But, you’ll need to write your own code to allow the user to upload the photo and also your own code to store the lines (probably a database) that they fill in about themselves.

      All cool features by the way and things that I’m looking into for future versions of Dapp! 😉

  • Hi Cliff, it’s me again with another question.

    I’m trying to correct an issue with a 3rd party code that has nothing to do with the code generated in Dapp. However, in order to make this 3rd party code work the way I want, I need to use switch case.

    In the Dapp generated code I see you put a comment on the View Controller for example

    #pragma mark –
    #pragma mark Action Methods

    – (void)musicActionForSection:(NSInteger)section andRow:(NSInteger)row {
    // Unable to use ‘switch case’ due to issue with initially instantiating objects in case statements
    if (section == 0 && row == 0) {
    CCRadioViewController *controller = [[[CCRadioViewController alloc] init] autorelease];
    [self.navigationController pushViewController:controller animated:YES];
    } else if (section == 0 && row == 1) {
    NetlabelsViewController *controller = [[[NetlabelsViewController alloc] init] autorelease];
    [self.navigationController pushViewController:controller animated:YES];
    }
    }

    Problem is is that my 3rd party code does not behave as expected and I got a suggestion from someone who was experiencing the same issue to use switch case to fix it. So I went ahead and changed that view controller section to:

    – (void)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView didSelectRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath
    {
    switch (([indexPath section] * 10) + [indexPath row])
    {
    case 0:
    {
    NSLog(@”Pushing view ‘CC Radio’”);
    [[self navigationController] pushViewController:radioView animated:YES];
    break;
    }

    case 1:
    {
    NSLog(@”Pushing view ‘Netlabels’”);
    [[self navigationController] pushViewController:netlabelsvc animated:YES];
    break;
    }

    default:
    {
    NSLog(@”Invalid menu option.”);
    break;
    }
    }
    }

    However, as you might have guessed, the code compiles fine but when the simulator tries to open the table with the view controller with switch case, it crashes on that very specific breakpoint (the very beginning of the code bove).

    So, why exactly can’t I use Switch case? What do you mean exactly with “due to issue with initially instantiating objects in case statements”?

    Is that an issue with apple or Dapp?

    Thank you Best regards

    • It’s technically an issue with Objective-C, but I believe it also has to do with the way switch statements work. You can still use switch statements but the way to fix it is to use a garbage value before you instantiate your objects. Maybe not the most eloquent way ;), but it works for me.

      NSInteger garbageValue = 0;
      switch (myValue) {
      case 0:
      garbageValue = 0;
      // Instantiate my object here
      break;
      default:
      garbageValue = 0;
      // Instantiate my object here
      break;
      }

      Now, all that being said it looks like your code is just pushing a view controller which doesn’t need a ‘garbageValue’ prior to the call in a switch statement. Which means your problem might be something else.

  • I downloaded Dapp to iTunes (the site link leads to iTunes rather than to App Store, hmmm not sure why it did that.

    In any case, the Dapp application does show in iTunes, but it will not transfer over to my IPhone.

    ? what now?

    • iTunes on your computer is the ‘conduit’ for downloading apps to your Mac/PC. 🙂

      The way to get Dapp over to your iPhone is to sync your purchases with your iPhone. This will automatically bring them across. 😉

  • Hello Cliff. Great App..
    How to I link to other pages using the table view? I am sure it is not to difficult.

    • Yep, it’s pretty easy. :).. although not necessarily quickly accessible.

      Just select the ‘sections’ property once you are editing a tableview. From there, you can select the ‘section’, and drill down to the rows in that section. Once you have selected a row, you will also have the ability to create actions for that row… ;)… as well as a bunch of other customizations.

  • Thanks Cliff. Great App too. On more question. How do you add in a web link to a page? So if I wanted to add a button to register for a event and it takes them to a web site?

    • [[UIApplication sharedApplication] openURL:[NSURL URLWithString:@”http://www.mywebsite.com”]];

      That’ll open up the safari browser on the device and take your user to the page you want :).

  • Hello
    We are using DAPP as part of our high school curriculum. I are having an issue with the “Publish to PDF” function. It seems that my new ipod touch 4 is crashing when trying to publish. This is a new device with wireless connection. When attempting to publish, the screen hesitates and returns to the DAPP homescreen without the pdf being sent to the specified email. I have attempted to use several emails. Is there something that would hinder the publishing process?
    Thanks in advance for your time and energy

    • Ack, that sucks :(.

      Ok, create a backup (in settings), and then connect your device to a computer with iTunes and grab a copy of the backup file (using iTunes file sharing).

      Send it to me at cliff@kerofrog.com.au and I’ll create the PDF’s for you… and test it within Xcode to see where the issue is. Just shoot me an email as well if you are having any trouble using iTunes file sharing ;).

  • Hi!

    I just tried the lite version and made a mockup of an upcoming app. Liked DAPP a lot, so I bought it, but I can’t figure out how to get my already finished mockup from DAPP Lite to DAPP.

    • Hi Matt :).

      Hope you had a good Christmas – I’ve been away for a while, so sorry about the delay.

      Yep. Just go to settings in Dapp lite and export a backup of your files.

      Then use iTunes file sharing (with your device connected) to get access to the backup that was exported and just copy it over to your desktop, and then copy it into the Dapp home folder using iTunes file sharing again.

      From there, just restore the backup on the full version of Dapp :).

  • Trying to figure basic navigation out from page to page. I have a Tab working but cannot get a Navigation Bar working. I’ve watch tutorials but the “navigation Controller” option in the “Page Options” section is not there as in your tutorials.

    • Navigation Controller option in pages was dropped due to it not being needed, but basically all it did was hide the nav controller on some pages… something that wasn’t very intuitive and wasn’t working correctly.

      Generally you want to be choosing whether or not to have a nav controller throughout your app, and not hide/show it… looks ugly ;), and not very UX friendly… If it absolutely has to be hidden on some pages, then there is code for that ;).

      BUT!… your question was navigation between page to page.

      For going forward, these are handled by ‘actions’, I’ve got a vid tutorial on this in the list ;).

      But basically what you are doing is hooking up a ‘push’ action to buttons, toolbars or tableview cells to place a new page on the ‘stack’ and show it. That stack is the ‘navigation controller view controllers stack’.

      By default users will be able to then press the ‘back’ button to go back a level on the stack.

      Nav controller is automatically created for you :).

  • Hello,

    Im having trouble setting the mapView to show a specific coordinate when that view is loaded. Any insight or links would be much appreciated. This app is awesome Im hooked at this point, thank you & happy new year!

    • Hmm.. just answered this elsewhere, should probably turn it into a FAQ post.

      Yep, just did that ;). In FAQ, under ‘How to make Map Annotations’

  • Hi Cliff

    i posted a question yesterday regarding pushing different views

    I figured it out .. no need to reply back to my original posting

    all good here

    thanks

  • Cliff:

    I love the Dapp app — well worth the 9.99. However, I am having a hard time trying to find out how to transfer images in .png that I created, to my ITune’s Dapp folder, or creating a new folder to house my .pngs on iTunes.

    Any idea if there is a You Tube tutorial on how to upload images from iTunes store to my Dapp folder?

    Also, any ideas on a Dapp app for IPad coming soon??

    Thanks!

    Matthew

    • Tutorial:
      1) Connect your iPhone to your computer and start iTunes
      2) Select ‘Apps’ tab at top
      3) Scroll down list of apps and find Dapp
      4) Drag and drop files from your computer to the Dapp home folder 😉

      Gonna be honest, iPad app ain’t gonna come any time soon.

      I’m currently working on getting investment capital full-time and taking care of newborn ;).

      Part of the point of getting the capital is to bring on some staff so I can get an iPad version of Dapp out for you guys.

      I’ll keep you in loop on blog :).

  • I just finished building a tabbed app with Dapp and I din’t have to write any code inside xcode Thank you.
    Now I want that app to rotate to landscape mode. Can you give me any idea how to do this? Any weblinks or tutorials would help.
    Great App.

    • To allow rotation of the screen you need to use a few delegate methods. Good news is that all your ViewControllers (Pages) already have access to these.

      The main one to use is:

      – (BOOL)shouldAutorotateToInterfaceOrientation:(UIInterfaceOrientation)interfaceOrientation {
      // Overriden to allow any orientation.
      return YES;
      }

      Just copy/paste it into your code. That will allow any interface orientation.

      But then comes the tricky bit, as you will need to update the size and position of all your objects whenever the rotation changes.

      Best part to do this is in the following method, just copy/paste it in as well.

      – (void)willAnimateRotationToInterfaceOrientation:(UIInterfaceOrientation)interfaceOrientation duration:(NSTimeInterval)duration {
      // Here is where you want to reposition your objects, depending on whether the screen is rotating to portrait or to landscape.
      }

      Because Dapp splits up Views and View Controllers, I actually advise that you copy over the objects that need to be updated from the view so you can directly manipulate them.

      Other useful delegates to be aware of are:
      – (void)didRotateFromInterfaceOrientation:(UIInterfaceOrientation)fromInterfaceOrientation {
      // Called once the device has finished rotating.
      }

      – (void)willRotateToInterfaceOrientation:(UIInterfaceOrientation)toInterfaceOrientation duration:(NSTimeInterval)duration {
      // Called immediately before the device starts to rotate.
      }

      Good luck! 😉
      Cliff.

  • Hi,
    Very new to iPhone development. Trying to use DAPP to learn. Anyway made a simple view with 2 TextFields and an ok button. I cannot figure out how to get the data from the TextFields when the ok button is pressed.
    Do you have an example using DAPP of getting user input from a textfield?
    Thanks

    • Sorry about that 🙁

      I made a decision that I sorta regret now to split up the views and view controllers when exporting to code.

      Best thing to do to get access to those text fields is to copy over the ‘load methods’ for the textfields you want to access from the View to the ViewController. Then you just need to put in your object declaration in the header, so that you can access it from wherever in the class file.

      For example (these are just pointers really):

      MyViewController.h
      UITextField *myTextField;

      MyViewController.m
      [self loadMyTextField];
      NSString *string = myTextField.text;

      Hopefully that’s clear enough? :/

  • Hey Cliff, i am also making an app for my high school curriculum. My teacher wants to know how we could put music on our app?

    • 1. Doing update now, so will see if i can integrate the ‘navigation bar’ with the ‘navigation controller’… Which is why you can’t do actions on nav bars :(.

      2. Nope… afraid not :(. That round button is technically a fixed image and doesn’t allow different colours to be applied to it. Best thing for buttons really is to use custom images. Apart from that, there is a way around it by using Quartz 2D code.. heh… but that’s only going to get you a straight line round button which doesn’t look as good as apple button anyways :/

      3. Cool, thx for the explanation… was raising an eyebrow there :P…. ok, you are talking about being able to pass data around. As you can imagine, there are a ton of variables here… so I can’t promise bringing a feature like this in but I am looking at gradually bringing in a bunch of features that allow some level of data manipulation and a background db, which is what you really want if you are passing around data :).

      • Alright… About #3 – I’ve wanted variable for a while. Just simply create a variable that anything can read or write. Brings up a lot of bugs, but would be great… But just another aspect to add…

    • Chelsie-

      I understand this comment is submitted quite a while after your question. Sorry. However, I have a way for you to get the roundness of the “Rounded Rect” button, and still use a custom button. Basically, what you have to do is to add a “Rectangle View.” Set the background color, and the corner radius to 10. Then, send the object to the back (double tapping on it < send to back). Now, implement a custom button. Set the background to clear. Make the button the same exact size as the Rectangle View. Now, overlay the custom button over the rectangle view. Change the color of the rectangle view, and it will have a background color. Also, you can change the color of the border color of the rectangle view. Problem solved! Reply if you have any questions.

      -rfawcett39

      • That is one method :).

        Another way is to design your own custom button in your favourite image editor (MSPaint, Gimp etc.) and then bring that over to your Dapp project.

        You can then set the image of the custom button to what you created.

        Thx for the tip ;).

  • I built up search button in Dapp, but when I opened it in XCode and run it, it is not working properly.
    My aim is using search for all in my texts, how can I make it?

    • Sorry ahmet 🙁

      There’s more involved with hooking up the search bar to your data.

      Interestingly enough, the search bar apple provides is just a text field with some extra features.

      It doesn’t actually do any searching at all.

      What it does provide is delegates so that you know when the user has entered information in and when the user taps the search button.

      But unfortunately, it’s up to ourselves to return the correct data to the user (based on their search results).

      I can give you some pointers on how to put this together but you’ll need to give me a bit more details on what type of action you want to occur if the user searches for something and it is within your texts.

  • i tried copy paste to Text View but it didn’t worked
    i copied from safari or notepad but couldn’t paste.
    is it limited in lite version or there is another way for it.
    app copy paste its own texts but not pasting from outside.

    • ack.. :(… sorry mate.

      Hmm… not sure why this wouldn’t work to be honest.

      And there is nothing different in that regard from lite or full version.

      Best advice is to do any copy/pasting once you export to code, much faster :).

      Easy way is to put in some line of text that you can then search for and replace on your computer with the text from safari/notepad.

      Although only catch is that only full version supports export to code :S…

      sorry mate :(.

  • Hi,
    before i continue i would like to apologize if i sound stupid. I’m a newbie in iOS app. In fact i find that your app is the missing link that Xcode should have to make learning and producing easier and efficient.

    I use Dapp to just create the whole skeletal structure of the entire project. i just use whatever images i have in my iPad album (yes i’m using iPad so that it would ease me visually, though i can’t wait for the actual iPad version to be released). I use ‘blabalblablaa’ just fot the label and other text placement.

    The thing is this:

    I’m trying to come up with an app : content (table view) -> View (individual views based on the clicked content page)

    I named my content page (table view), ‘Content’ and one of the view (just created one view for testing purposes), ‘Wn_n01.

    So naturally, the exported code would have Content_PageViewController.h, Content_PageViewController.m, Content_PageView.h, Content_PageView.m, Wn_n01ViewController.h, Wn_n01ViewController.m, Wn_n01View.h, Wn_n01View.m.

    I’m trying to look for Wn_n01 in Content_PageViewController.m and Content_PageView.m but i can’t seem to find it. I want to add Wn_n02, Wn_n03 etc to the available template since ‘Content'(table view) already has the slots for the additional files i want to manually link into Xcode.

    Thanx in advance.. 🙂

    • Sorry man, trying to wrap my head around this isn’t the easiest ;).

      Best bet would be just to send over the exported code to me at cliff@kerofrog.com.au and I can help show you what you are looking for :).

      thx man.

  • Not sure if this has been answered but can I create an app from my Iphone from start to finish and sell it without using a mac pc?

    • Sorry man :(, the short answer is no.

      The long and convoluted answer is ‘yes’.

      But my personal recommendation is you do what I did when I first started making iPhone apps and pick up a cheap mac mini :).

  • Is there a way to add a home button to the top of each page? My users will have to go back all the way to the home page…page….by….page. Also, I’ve created a button and I want the user to be able to tap it and then their email open up so they can email the address. How do I do that?

    Mark

    • Yeah, you can do a ‘home’ button. 🙂

      But you’ll need to change a bit of code :(.

      What you do is create the button and give it a ‘pop’ action.

      Then after you’ve exported to code, you change the ‘action’ for that button from:

      [self.navigationController popViewControllerAnimated:YES];

      to:

      [self.navigationController popToRootViewControllerAnimated:YES];

      Emailing is a little bit more involved.

      1. Import the MessageUI.framework
      2. Place #import in the header file
      3. Add the MFMailComposeViewControllerDelegate to the header file
      4. Create the MFMailComposeViewController object to send the mail when button is tapped.

      Hmm… I’m just gonna create a tutorial for this, as I doubt those 4 steps help you at all :S.

  • Hi all,
    This question would really do well if we have a forum here so that Cliff can rest a bit…LoL…

    Am doing a questionnaire to one of Dapp Export Tab Bar project. So i tweaked the UIView of the intended UIViewController and use NSURL to fetch the data from a remote site. So i have all this bunch of UILabels that represents the captured remote data. The thing is how do i refresh this data from Button->IBAction?

    I tried to implement the tutorial i got from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4zmM_Rqv6Y . The switching of views work but it the flushed out view covers the whole screen and my tab bar. So my question is how can i refresh aka switch to a refreshed view without losing my tab bar?

    • Dude :P, thats a 15 min vid, what’s the code you are using? 🙂

      Ah… if tab bar is also being covered and you are pushing a new view it’s because you are using the UITabBar object, and not the tab bar controller.

      Just make sure you are setting up the tab bar controller via ‘project options’.

      Otherwise just shoot through your source code as it will save the guessing :).

  • Hi!
    Thx for a awesome app!

    I’m wondering if you will add some fuctions to use the camera in dapp project? Like the mapkit controller. Would be really cool 🙂

    //Bjorn

  • AM IN DAPP WHEN YOU SELECT THE TABLE VIW ACTION AND YOU SELECTED IN GROUP IS THERE A WAY TO CHANGE THE COLOR FOR THE TABLE VIEW WHEN IS GROUP .FOR EXAMPLE IF I PICK A TABLE VIEW AND CHOOSE IT ”PLAIN” AND CHOOSE THE BACK ROUND BLACK THEN THATS WHAT I GET BUT WHEN I CHOOSE THE TABLE VIEW ”GROUP” AND CHOOSE THE BACKROUND BLACK I GET THE TABLE WHITE WITH THE BACKROUND BLACK …MY QUESTION IS WHEN I PICK MY TABLE VIEW UNDER GROUP CAN I CHANGE THE TABLE GROUP TO ALL BLACK?

    • For grouped table views, this is something you’ll have to update in code.

      Luckily it’s just one line of code :).

      Essentially for group tableviews, you also need to get rid of the ‘background view’ which is what is creating those rounded corners and is the reason why the colour doesn’t affect the whole tableview.

      To get rid of the background view, just set it equal to nil for the tableview once you export to code :).

      tableview.backgroundView = nil;

  • Heya Cliff! Hope all is well with you.

    I am working on my 2nd DAPP APP for medical and I was wondering about a few things.

    1. How can I add an image in with my text? I am assuming I need to use TableViews to do this.

    2. Any way to embed youtube videos on to the page?

    Best,
    Candice

    • 1. Table views are best, otherwise you just use a UILabel and a UIImageView next to it :).
      2. Yep, just use the UIWebView object, and after you’ve exported to code, you just need to drop in the embedded youtube code into the ‘loadRequest’ property of the UIWebView.

      //Create a URL object.
      NSURL *url = [NSURL URLWithString:@”http://youtubeEmbedCode”];

      //URL Requst Object
      NSURLRequest *requestObj = [NSURLRequest requestWithURL:url];

      //Load the request in the UIWebView.
      [webView loadRequest:requestObj];

      • Ah! So clever. Thank you.

        Another question, and this is just for organizational purposes. Is there any way to move my pages up and down on the list? I am finding that any time I add a page it goes to the bottom of the list and I cannot move it up or down to organize according to my app sections.

        • Tap on the edit button and then drag the section on right hand side with straight lines (move handles) to reorder pages :).

          • Thank you Cliff!

            I have done a bunch of work on the app and have exported it to Xcode to continue. Upon export I was given this issue on the build: “ViewController.h file not found”

            It is under the VIEW CONTROLLERS:

            // View Controllers
            #import “Shop_StripsViewController.h”
            #import “Cutting_FAN_stripViewController.h”
            #import “ViewController.h” ***error on this line***
            #import “HomeViewController.h”

            Any thoughts?

          • NEVERMIND! I realized I had an extra page that had broken links to it, I just cleaned up my project files and that did it. – Candice

          • OH an 1 more question, can I make my own footer navigation without getting nailed by apple? For instance I am using a “TabBar” as a footer and then putting my own buttons over it.

        • You’re free to use whatever for footer navigation in regards to Apple.

          Heh… and even doing that with tab bar should go through fine.

          If you’re app is split into ‘concrete’ sections then a tab bar works well, just use the tab bar controller object by opening up project settings and setting it up :).

  • Help!

    I just finished building my APP. I have been trying to email the code to myself but DAPP keeps crashing/quitting, while trying to export to code. So I attached my IPAD (designing using my ipad) to ITUNES and have copied over my latest “EXPORT DAPP BACKUP” and all the folders. My latest back up is at 68mb. So I am assuming DAPP is crashing while trying to export code to email because the file size is too large?

    Anyway, I am trying to open my backed up .ZIP file, I assume this is the same as the exporting code to email file….Anyway, when I double click on the backed up ZIP file (I copied from itunes out of my ipad) I keep getting a message asking me for a password for certain image files. But I never set any passwords.

    So I am wondering:

    1. Is there a way to convert my 68mb project into code via email?

    2. If not, is there a way to convert my 68mb project into code via the exported dapp back up (found in settings) and simply use those files to bring into XCODE?

    3. If not, how do I export my project into code so I may continue in XCODE?

    I hope this is clear.

    Thank you,
    Candice

    • Aye, sounds like it’s having trouble mailing such a large file :(.

      Sorry Candice, that Zip file is Dapp backup data, which is used to store database and other information related to all projects.

      The folder you want to copy over is ‘DappTemp’, this is where the zip file (and all code files) are stored prior to emailing. Just copy that folder over and you’ll find a copy of all the files you need :).

      • Cliff,

        It did work perfectly to take from the DAPP TEMP folder. I was able to bring in to XCODE and check everything and it ran without errors. However, I found some errors of my own that I needed to fix back in DAPP. So I did. But then when I pulled the DAPP TEMP folder over again it was the older version of my files (with my errors contained). Does it take some time to allow the DAPP TEMP folder to catch up to the latest changes or is there something I have to do to regenerate the newer DAPP TEMP folder files? Thank you again.

        • The ‘DappTemp’ folder will be updated every time you ‘export to code’ from within the app 🙂

          • Aces Cliff. It all worked perfectly. My app has been submitted and awaits review! Now on to the iPad version, I have been using HYPE program to do ipad apps then phonegap in Xcode, until you bang out your iPad version of DAPP, truthfully yours is the best software on the market. – Candice

  • Cliff,

    Just wanted to share my happy success with the second app I have created using DAPP. I cannot tell you how awesome it has been to be able to create another revenue stream for myself in my life because your app has made it possible for me. The latest medical app I have released (and has been approved by iTunes!) is The “Kinesiology Taping” app. It has over 200 sections of video tutorials and reference for medical practitioners and anyone interested in the taping methods for over 50 common injuries. Thank you for the app and your commitment to helping those of us achieve our goals.

  • I’m trying to migrate from Lite to Full.

    Your FAQ states go to settings and do a backup, but my settings screen has no option for backups, just Author, PageBG, Email, Guidelines and Version (1.6)

    Same goes for full by the way, no restore option.

    • Thanks for letting me know, I’ve updated the FAQ.

      Yeah, Apple made me get rid of backup and restore because they said it could be used to distribute apps outside the App Store :(.

      They even took down the App off the store when I didn’t do the update :(.

      Would be awesome if there was a program out there that let us copy over folders/data from one app to another, as that would do the migrate for you.

      My apologies :(, feel free to email me at cliff@kerofrog.com if you’d like a refund.

    • Following up on this, I’ve had some users successfully copy over contents from Dapp Lite to Dapp 🙂

      They used this app – http://www.macroplant.com/iexplorer/

      Any app that can keep the folder structure will work, and all that’s required is to copy over the data exactly (same folder structure) from Dapp Lite to Dapp 🙂
