Sign an app and have someone else upload to the app world?

Is this allowed within the App world and code signing agreement: Our company builds an app and signs it. Another company or party uploads it to the app world.

 

I don't really know much else beyond these requirements, I was asked this by my manager but didn't know the answer. I can't make heads or tails of the license agreement -- IANAL

 

Thanks!

Re: Sign an app and have someone else upload to the app world?

Good question.  Not 100% certain, but my guess is that where the application is being downloaded from matches the signing certificate.  That is kind of the whole point of the signing so someone does not download an app thinking it is from company A, but it is really from company B.

 

I would suggest that the company you're building the application for gets the signing access and gives you access to use their signing cert.
