Starcraft 2 Profile Viewer sent for approval!

Ok ppl, here it goes…. My first submission EVER to the appstore is sent out. I’m soooo excited…

It was quite a struggle to fill out the forms and get the certificates right bla bla bla, but it’s out of my hands now. Wondering how long it will take until I hear from Apple, and how quick I’ll get it through. Curious if it will be rejected or if it will be accepted at the first go.

Well, only one way to find out! And then for the community feedback – how will the app be received? This is sooo cooool!!!

Adding SC2 Profile content to the Blog

So today is the day to add the support pages for the SC2 Profile application to this site. It’s going to be an app that allows you to keep track of your Starcraft 2 profile on your iPhone, very cool!

This is going to be the first app I submit to the appstore. I’m pretty exited now it is getting closer and closer. I’m testing the app itself now, getting in some fixes so it also works for Korean profiles etc. Now it’s a matter of pushing through and getting the app ready for submission!

Adding a Starcraft 2 profile to the application preferences

This post explains how to add a Starcraft 2 profile to the SC2 Profile application.

In order for the application to be able to access your Starcraft 2 profile on battle.net, it needs to know your username, language, region and account code. This is achieved by entering the URL that belongs to your profile.

You insert this information in the following way:

View Profile on Battle.net

View Profile on Battle.net


Step 1 – Navigate to your profile on Battle.net on your iPhone

This is the hardest step to perform on your iPhone if you don’t know how to reach the URL of your Starcraft 2 profile, especially if you are using an authenticator to keep your account safe.

The goal is to end up at a page like http://eu.battle.net/sc2/en/profile/634224/1/Meingjord/

There are multiple ways of getting there. One way is to log on to battle.net in the browser, and then click on your name. This should take you to your profile page. Similarly, you can get to a profile by following a link on one of the forums. Another way to get to your profile is to search your profile on a site like http://sc2ranks.com/, figure out your account code and then guess the URL and test it. An alternative is to log on to battle.net on your desktop with your authenticator, and then type the URL in safari on your iPhone directly.

You should really use Safari to test if the URL is valid before adding it to the SC2 Profile application.

To keep your Blizzard account safe and make sure your password and authenticator code are kept private, you will never be asked to enter these inside the SC2 Profile application. That’s why you have to use Safari to find your profile page.

Once you see your Starcraft 2 profile in Safari, you have made it through the first step!

Copy URL

Copy URL


Step 2 – Copy the full URL of your profile to the clipboard on your iPhone.

Copying the URL from Safari to the clipboard is easy when you know how to do it.

  • Select the navigation URL (you will see a keyboard to type)
  • Hold your finger on the URL until a magnifying glass appears
  • Choose Select All (you will see the full URL as a selected text now)
  • Choose Copy

This should put the whole URL on to your clipboard.

Step 3 – Start the SC2 Profile application and go to the Add Character screen.

When you open the SC2 Profile application for the first time, it will show the Add Character screen as your first screen.

It automatically gets the URL from the clipboard, and adds the character to your favorites list. This is successful when you see the character name on the Add Character page. When you see the name of your profile, you are done. You can add more character profiles by leaving the application and inserting another character profile URL to the clipboard.

When the application does not pick up your URL from the clipboard, it probably does not recognice the string as a valid battle.net profile URL. Go back to step 1, and make sure that you put the entire URL to the clipboard. You can test your URL by pasting it to the browser navigation line. An example is: http://eu.battle.net/sc2/en/profile/634224/1/Meingjord/

When you have moved away from the Add Character screen or want to add another character later, go to the Character tab, and click the Edit button. Select “Add new Characters” and repeat the previous steps.
