Deployment to external testers RRS feed

    Hi,

    We've done some preliminary testing on our local devices which are hooked directly up to our Mac, however we now need to get some external parties to do some testing. We don;t have the ability to bring their devices into our office and plug into the Mac, so is there a way to send a beta version to people (if we save their UDIDs to the provisioning profile)?

    With the Google store it's easy, you just send them a link to the beta version and they can run it. I haven't seen any documentation which shows how you would do this for iOS though? Surely you don't have to have the app approved by app store for this?

    Yeah I managed to figure it out - thanks.

    Seems pretty slack that there is no obvious documentation on the Xamarin website about how to do so, given we were sold on this product due to its ability to work with visual studio.
