Suborbital Reports 1.2

We just pushed Suborbital Reports 1.2 to our servers.

This update deprecates support for username/password credentials and introduces support for the new iTunes Connect Authentication Token scheme.

Please refer to the following blog post to find out more about the new iTunes token:

Reports: iTunes Connect Authentication Token Support

As you probably know Apple is going to retire the use of username and password for their report ingestion APIs by August 2017. That’s why Suborbital Reports is going to remove support for username/password in the next update.

When we release the upcoming update of Suborbital Reports you won’t be able to change or set your account’s username and password. You will be required to generate an authentication token on Apple’s website and use that.

Note that your existing login credentials will continue to work until Apple’s server start rejecting that login method. We just removed the possibility of setting or changing the username and password in Suborbital Reports.

We suggest you generate an Authentication Token for your accounts as soon as possible and start using this token. It’s more secure than having your iTunes Connect login credentials accessible to other applications.

To generate a token follow Apple’s guide:

(It’s really simple: Log into iTunes Connect, go to the Sales and Trends tab, make sure you’re in the Reports submenu and there click on the little question mark button in the upper right corner next to About Reports. From the popup select Generate Aceess Token.)

Power Prompter 1.5.4 Adds Speed Lock

Recently (yesterday) we got a support request. A new Power Prompter user had habit to accidentally change the scrolling speed from time to time and wondered if there’s a way to lock the scroll speed once a good setting was found.

Well, there was no way. So we got to work and spent our Saturday evening adding that feature.

The result is Power Prompter 1.5.4 – which is a small update adding this one feature:

Once you press this little button the scroll speed can not be changed anymore. (This affects only one window – other unlocked teleprompter windows can still change the speed. Which is great if you’re working in a team and the talent shouldn’t be fiddling around with speed settings).

The update has been uploaded to our servers and Power Prompter’s update feature should find it soon. As usual: Sorry to Mac App Store users – you will have to wait a little longer for the update. Apple’s review team seems swamped with work before the upcoming WWDC.

Power Prompter is a modern teleprompter application for the Mac. Specially designed for contemporary small team and solo content creators.

Power Prompter 1.5 is available

Recent Report Downloading Issues with Suborbital Reports

Just a short heads up: Currently Apple’s servers aren’t on top of their game and downloading reports can take some time or completely time out.

Just re-try it a few times and ignore the “unexpected login error” message Suborbital Reports is displaying.

If you can’t get it to work there’s another option: Log into the iTunes Connect page and download the daily reports. You can import those files then via “File -> Import Report Files…” in Suborbital Reports.

Reports: SSL Related Login Issues

We just released an update (1.1.4) that fixes the most recent login issues.

Looks like Apple didn’t properly extend their SSL certificate for “” and the current certificate is only valid for “”. (See for yourself).

This did not only break Suborbital Reports but also Apple’s official Report Downloader command line tool.

We expect Apple to fix the issue soon but until then we updated Suborbital Reports to use the new domain.
