Distribute your iPhone/iPad adhoc builds Over The Air using Dropbox

Update: I recently found this site called diawi.com which allows you to distribute the app similar to file-sharing sites, drag and drop ipa file and share the link to the testers.

Yes, there is an awesome service by Testflight App which I highly recommend. Not because I received their stickers for being an early adaptor :). It does so many things which makes distributing app for beta testing a breeze, go try it yourself.

I was just curious to know how OTA works, after testing with own web server for internal testing, I thought why can’t I do this with Dropbox?

Upload your ipa

Copying public link

All files, copying public url for index.html 

Installing the app

App icon will be disappeared once the installation complete (which is weird), but restarting the device does solve the issue. You have your app on springboard for testing. Enjoy delivering your adhoc builds to your testers by distributing over the air.

NO iTunes FTW.
