iPhone (or iPad) Testing - Installing applications with a Zip file

After we finish developing an App for you, we want you to test it, before we submit it to the App store. Installing your App on your iPhone or iPad is a simple process.

Here are the Steps

  1. We will send you two files. One will be a .zip file and the other will be a .mobileprovision file.  Save them in a convenient location
  2. Unzip the .zip file.  Extract all the files.  This should create a folder ending in .app.  On Windows, you may get an encryption related dialog as shown.  Select Yes.iphone testing unzip encryption
  3. Drag the .mobileprovision file and the .app folder, and drop it into iTunes Library.ipad testing app folder to library resized 600
