It's not an app for mobile. It's an application for the desktop.

Am I missing something here?
Haven't app stores kind of rendered this conversation obsolete?

Absolutely. I mean don't spend too much of your time building a roadblock, because then you start to miss out on the user experience.

Well, I agree and disagree. I'd like to make it a little more difficult. Of course, someone's going to add they key to Surfers Serialz, but I'd like to make it just that much more difficult. I don't want it being rampantly shared. I want to put up at least one roadblock.

Check this out: 


It is a really good explanation on Cocoa security and it's natural vulnerabilities, as well as how to best attempt to protect them.

But in all honesty, if someone wants to steal your app, they will. Don't focus too much on building a huge licensing roadblock, but instead focus on making a user experience that customers want to pay for.

Hey everyone,

I'm embarking down the road of building my first Mac desktop app that I'd like to sell, but provide a license key for.

Are there any 3rd party vendors that help you sell downloads and generate the license key that you can bundle with the download?

Never done this before. Could take my own advice and Google it, but I'm sure there will be more results than I can digest, so wanted to get some specifics from friends first as to what I should be Googling for.
