Somehow, I was always struggling with the proper certificates, permissions, names, icons, etc. when building an app for either my testers or the app store.

iPhonedevelopertips.com has a very nice distribution build cheat sheet online.
Whenever I setup a new project for Ah-Hoc distribution or for Appstore distribution, I go over several steps in this document, it saves a lot of headaches on why XCode is complaining on missing certificates, provisioning profiles or why your just built app just won’t install on that tester’s iPhone.

There’s a few methods to change your company name that shows up in new source files you add to your project.

To do it on a system-wide basis so it applies to all projects, open a terminal window, and type the following line (one line, no enters):

defaults write com.apple.Xcode PBXCustomTemplateMacroDefinitions ‘{ORGANIZATIONNAME="YourCompanyNameHere";}’

To do it on a per project basis so it applies only to files in your current project, right-click your project and select ‘Get info’

Get project info

Now select the ‘general’ tab and change the company name to what you’d like in the project files to show up.
