Re: "Package ID already in use" while uploading free version of app to appworld

Hi wovas,


The package ID is generated based on your widget name which is derived in the following manner

  1. The "ID" attribute of the widget element in your config.xml file
  2. If that can't be found then the name of your zip file.
