On May 15, 2014 PhoneGap Build will be switching to a new authentication scheme for its users. It's based on OAuth, which is much more secure. Starting with AppStudio 4.1, users can use this new authorization scheme.

For people using the default PhoneGap Build account which is built into AppStudio, there will be no change. Just make sure you are on AppStudio 4.1 and higher, and continue working as before.

If you have your own PhoneGap account, you will need to log into it and get your authentication code. Enter that code into AppStudio and you'll be all set. (You need your own PhoneGap Build account to create apps which can be submitted to app stores.)

How to set up PhoneGap Authorization

  1. Sign into your PhoneGap Build account.
  2. Click on the head icon on top line and choose "Edit Account"
  3. Choose the Client Applications tab
  4. Under Authentication Tokens, click on the Reset button

"Build Native App with PhoneGap" on the Run menu will now use your authorization to upload to your PhoneGap account.
