What Files To Submit??

I recently filled out all the forms for submitting an app to the app store but the last step is to upload the binaries. Which files should i upload? I really have no clue so can somebody please help?

As the guidelines say, zip the distribution binary (right click and select compress) then upload it that file.

In Xcode find your .app file (probably in a Products folder), ctrl-click and 'reveal in finder'.

You're going to have to be more descriptive SO much can go wrong with signing. In what way is it not working?

i have made a distribution provisioning file with a distribution certificate and when i try to run it on a device it says "Can’t run on the iPod. The iPod doesn’t have the provisioning profile with which the application was signed." i have also changed the build settings but still to no avail.

yes the distribution cannot be tested, for test you need to use the developer certificate, the distribution version is only for submission to App Store (they can test)

You can't run a distribution build on the device. You should be testing the release build on the device, and then, following the step by step instructions on the dev portal, create a distribution build, compress it, and submit it.
