Mobile library provides applications, documents, and media to mobile devices. In order to add a commercial App to the library on the Altiris Console go to Home > Mobile Management > Device Management > Mobile Library Editor and then Items > select the arrow besides New Item > New Commercial iOS App.

In there, we can paste link for a commercial App from the iTunes Store. Basically, it will populate all the necessary information in order to deliver it to Mobile devices such as Item Icon and Bundle ID (com.company.App's name).

When adding a link into the field 'iTunes Store link', it checks the App's data from a specific Database created by Apple. Some commercial iOS Apps are not available in there.

E.g. the AFA Försäkring App is only available for the Swedish market, therefore we cannot use this feature. User needs to create this Item feed manually in order to work-around it.

Is there any way to change this behavior?
