Are you getting the "Cannot connect to build.stencyl.com" error?

As of February 2013, this process should no longer be necessary. Let us know if this isn't the case.

Hey guys,

Not sure why the email links suddenly broke, but here's a workaround you can do until we get some time to investigate this:

1) Copy the text of the link, beginning with "http" (e.g., http%3A%2F%2Fbuild.stencyl.com%2Fistencyl-apps%2Fapi%2F2%2Fapps%2Fcom.blahblah.blah.82f1fa6fa45ec79ec8d5c1adb6cc0cf48dfe007c%3Fformat%3Dplist)
2) Use a URL-decoder tool (like this one) to decode the URL.
3) Remove "api/2/apps/" from the path.
4) Enter that URL (with "api/2/apps/" gone) into your web browser. If you did it correctly, you should see an "Index of" page containing a file with the ".plist" extension.
5) Click on that file (it's just a special text file), and once it loads in your web browser, copy its URL to your clipboard.
6) Use the URL-encoder/decoder tool to encode the URL.
7) The URL you want to open on your iOS device then becomes:

itms-services://?action=download-manifest&url=the encoded URL you copied in step 6

Example:

itms-services://?action=download-manifest&url=http%3A%2F%2Fbuild.stencyl.com%2Fistencyl-apps%2Fapi%2F2%2Fapps%2Fcom.blahblah.blah.82f1fa6fa45ec79ec8d5c1adb6cc0cf48dfe007c%3Fformat%3Dplist

becomes

itms-services://?action=download-manifest&url=http%3A%2F%2Fbuild.stencyl.com%2Fistencyl-apps%2Fcom.blahblah.blah.82f1fa6fa45ec79ec8d5c1adb6cc0cf48dfe007c%2F22807.plist
