Get details about your iOS apps in a .csv file
Authored by: loren_ryter on Sep 02, '10 07:03:54AM

Thanks for the file download. At first I thought it didn't work but I failed to read the directions about where it has to be located. Moved it and now it ran just fine. But I didn't get any results, just the headers:


I got a lot of messages like this:

Yelp does not exist
tar: This does not look like a tar archive
tar: Skipping to next header
tar: iTunesMetadata.plist: Not found in archive
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

Get details about your iOS apps in a .csv file

I just downloaded the script and re-verified it.

What I get when I run it is shell feedback that looks like this:

LinkedIn exists
x iTunesMetadata.plist

for each app in the Mobile Applications folder. When it's done it launches OpenOffice and displays the AppInfo.csv file with the metadata in rows by app.

Be sure the script is in the Mobile Applications folder, and that you run it from there. If you don't have OpenOffice you should be able to read this in Excel, Numbers, FileMaker or even AppleWorks. Anything that can handle a delimited text file properly.
