This is really a two-part question.
I'm building an App that needs to update itself. I had wanted to use the AppStore to handle that, but it seems as though the requirements of the AppStore are making things too complex with this app. To work around that, I think I'm going to avoid the App store.
Does any one have any suggestions on a good framework or set of tools for auto-updating my mac app? On Windows, I'm using Squirrel, but there isn't a release for .NET on Mac.
I've considered just making my app launch a browser to download the latest PKG file. How do I make VS for Mac create a PKG file that results in the app being listed in "Applications" once it is installed?
Thanks for your help!
