A check for identifiers starting with numbers would be great!

    Before building a check to make sure the identifier doesn't start with a number. 

    If that can't happen then better logging when the build fails so that we can see what happened.

    Hi Bill,

    Thank you for the suggestion. The bigger picture here is that we build your app for two platforms (would be three by the end of the year) and each of those platforms have different limitations for the Application identifiers, not to mention reserved keywords for both Java and Objective C which are also not allowed. On the other hand Android does not throw any meaningful error we could show to you when the build fails for such a reason.
    So in other words, your App ID might be valid for one platform, but not for the other two. With that said it is very difficult to maintain a regex check that could be valid for all supported platforms and a better solution would be for you to modify the App ID manually for each platform (see Edit Configuration Files).

    I've logged your request to our bug tracking system and we would think how to better handle this scenario.
