From assistly #10616:

We would like to save on the .csproj the location chosen by the user the last time they generated a ZIP file, so it defaults to this place, instead of requiring too much user intervention every time.

It should be stored in the userprefs, not the csproj.

Migeul asked me to add further thoughts here.

I would like to be able to build all projects in a workspace and not be asked for information after the build starts. As there are now many MonoTouch apps to be maintained out there, we need a way to manage large numbers of builds at once when things like localizations or new graphics are added.

We should be able to choose Zip Build All apps In Workspace, or select A,B,F and G out of the list of apps to zip.

You can already create a build configuration that builds IPAs for every app, which seems like a better solution to your problem?

THis is for iTunes. When we add a new language for instance to our common localization project we need to push up 113 apps to iTunes. We need to build and Zip them all.

Right now we have the build, one by one, every app to a zip file.
