App release to the Apple App Store

We’re huge Apple fans here at incapptic Connect (our Founder is an OG Apple Fan, and worked with them for 7 years!). iOS is the second most widely used operating system globally after Android. Because of Apple’s heightened approach to security, publishing enterprise apps to the Apple App Store can present some unique challenges that we circumvent with the incapptic Connect solution. Here’s a quick video demo.


Step 1: let developers or app owners upload the .ipa file and related metadata to incapptic Connect

Step 2: hit “Upload to App Store Connect“

There is no step 3 :)

Nomasis und incapptic Connect vereinbaren strategische Partnerschaft

Ausbau des Angebots um Lösung für vereinfachtes App Release Management

Nomasis, Anbieter von sicheren Lösungen und Services für den geschäftlichen Einsatz von Smartphones und Tablets, und das Berliner Software-Haus Incapptic Connect gehen eine strategische Vertriebspartnerschaft ein. Dabei wird Nomasis als dedizierter Vertriebspartner und in enger Zusammenarbeit mit Incapptic Connect den Schweizer Markt für die gleichnamige Lösung für vereinfachtes App Release Management auf- und ausbauen. Incapptic Connect als Pionier bei der Optimierung von App Release Management und App Signing ermöglicht Unternehmen nicht nur massive zeitliche Einsparungen bei der Veröffentlichung von neuen Versionen firmeneigener Apps. Die Software erlaubt es insbesondere, viel häufiger als bisher Bugfixes und neue App- Funktionalitäten bereitzustellen“, sagt Philipp Klomp, CEO von Nomasis.

4 Ways to Prevent iOS Provisioning Profile Expiration

4 Ways to Prevent iOS Provisioning Profile Expiration

iOS provisioning profiles for in-house apps are only valid for 12 months. Their respective distribution certificates are valid for 36 months. The clock starts ticking the moment you generate either of them in the Apple Developer Center. Once the expiration date is reached, your app stops working. This is bad, as in-house app use cases are maturing from convenience (remember the Genentech Get-A-Room video?) to business critical.

incapptic Connect receives seed funding from High-Tech Gründerfonds

incapptic Connect closes seed round with HTGF. This start-up’s unique software resolves a complex problem in the field of apps and enterprise mobility.

incapptic Connect’s software simplifies the exchange of data between companies and external developers when updating apps. Each app needs to be signed with a digital corporate key before it can be published. This is akin to a sort of company signature. “To date, this has been carried out manually by IT specialists,” explains Dr. Rafael Kobylinski, Founder and CEO of incapptic Connect. “This takes up to one week to perform and is very error-prone.”

Today, for each new version of an app, developers need to supply all data required for publishing in the correct formats. To date, the data has been compiled in long Excel spreadsheets. The company’s IT department then needs to sign off the app with the digital corporate key before manually uploading it into the desired app stores and subsequently transferring the entire data manually again from the Excel spreadsheets.

Dr. Thiemo Scherle, Chief Customer Officer of incapptic Connect: “This error-prone procedure is no longer necessary with incapptic Connect. The software automates the process, thus ensuring that the implementation of new app versions is much easier and faster.”


incapptic Connect is compatible with popular app-distribution systems, such as MobileIron, Apple App Store and Google Play.


Dr. Rafael Kobylinski: “Our target group is large companies that offer apps for customers, partners and employees. Good apps are updated two to three times per month. Many apps therefore require numerous updates, which can be performed in a fast and error-free way with our software.”

Among the company’s first clients are a German DAX-30 company and CLAAS, the international manufacturers of agricultural machinery.

“The HTGF investment will primarily be used for product development. In addition, we will look to convince and win over further customers in the German-speaking countries (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) and beyond. We believe that incapptic Connect has major potential, particularly due to its complete independence from certain sectors and countries,” explains Dr. Marc Umber, Investment Manager at HTGF.
