Company name question

Hi guys,

 

I am an independent developer and don't have a company as of now.

 

When I tried to purchase code signing keys it's asking for company name ? Is it necessary to have a company to upload apps to app world too ?

 

any ideas?

 

thanks

 

yosoh.

Re: Company name question

Yes, it needs a "cn" name for the company.  Try using your last name.

Re: Company name question

If you start making more apps and/or start making some money off them, you may want to consider forming some kind of business identity.  Depending on what country you are in, there are some tax benefits to this as well as there is liability protection from personal assets.
