Is it possible to distribute an iOS build for other people to test?


#1

Hello,

Relatively new to Meteor so please bear with me.

I can deploy my application to my own iOS handset locally, and can play with it either against my local server or one hosted on meteor.com; all fantastic.

Is it possible to make and distribute an iOS build that a friend can install on their handset, or do they need the source code, Meteor, xcode, etc. to do it?

Cheers in advance.

There is nothing Meteor-specific here, so you’ll have to rely on what iOS allows. You could set this up yourself, but it makes most sense to use an existing testing service. Apple provides TestFlight beta testing, but there are also popular alternative like HockeyApp.

Thank you both; these all look like excellent options - exactly what I was after. Cheers again!
