Issues submitting app... noob help?

Sorry guys, but we are having difficulty submitting our app and google has not provided any solutions (nor apple itself).

We are getting a: "The binary you uploaded was invalid. It did not contain a .app bundle." error message.

So far we have tried uploading NYZ.app.zip, NYZ.zip (both of these are all the app files zipped up), we tried upload NYZ.zip with the .app folder inside the zipped file, and its the same error every time.

I know its a noobish question, but any help would be much appreciated

EDIT: found the issue. for other devs you cannot zip the files using anything other then finder. lame.
