6.1.3 incompatible with 10.9 sandboxing

   It was a long and confusing day or two, hence my multiple and rarely coherent posts to this list, but yes, I definitely do have apps approved and selling on the app store that uses “ask file” and write to disk.  They were released in 2012 (from their release dates I am guessing one was released using 10.7 and the other using 10.8).  Looking over my more recent releases it occurs to me that since that time they have been utility style apps that don’t read or write files other than preferences which don’t count.

   Hopefully in the next day or so I will have the fix for this issue implemented using applescript.  I put together a quick test app which looks promising.  I don’t know if these fixes in my the real app will both sandbox and pass muster with Apple.  If they do, I will post my fix.

   Once I get my app up I will see if I can create a simple stack that shows the issue with a built signed and unsigned apps that I can send along when I add to your bug report.
