iOS Question

Titanium , validate an iOS App with a name that contain -> &

App developed with titanium

I have to publish an app called Pizze&Altro

The problem lies in the & contained in the name of the app

The file tiapp.xml gave me error, then I put the name like this:
enter image description here (problem 1 solved)

However, during the validation of the app with xCode I find myself in front of this error (problem 2)

enter image description here

i tried this solution : https://developer.appcelerator.com/question/147989/invalid-url-scheme-when-validating-app , I copied the Info.plist file in the directory of the app by editing this section like this:

<key>CFBundleURLTypes</key>
<array>
<dict>
<key>CFBundleURLName</key>
<string>--.--.--</string>
<key>CFBundleURLSchemes</key>
<array>
<string>Pizze&amp;Altro</string>
</array>
</dict>
</array>


or

<key>CFBundleURLTypes</key>
<array>
<dict>
<key>CFBundleURLName</key>
<string>--.--.--</string>
<key>CFBundleURLSchemes</key>
<array>
<string>Pizze&Altro</string>
</array>
</dict>
</array>


but I keep finding myself in front of the error

Answer

I solved this particular issue in one of my apps by using localization:

Step 1: In your tiapp.xml, use a name without any special symbols:

<name>Pizze Altro</name>

Step 2: Create i18n/en/app.xml with the following contents (note i18n should be in the same directory as Resources; it shouldn't be inside Resources itself):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<resources>
    <string name="appname">Pizze&Altro</string>
</resources>

Step 3: Clean the project, then try publishing again.

See this blog post from Appcelerator for the same information, plus information on how to do the same for Android (you didn't ask or tag Android, so I haven't included that information directly): http://www.appcelerator.com/blog/2012/02/internationalization-of-app-names/
