    Android IOS Rim Distribution Question

    Daniel Pride Level 1

      Is it possible to distribute builds to employees/clients of a company without a verisign certificate?

      What is the best (and cheapest) way to do it?

      Thanks

      My first mobile builds

          For mobile apps you don't use a Verisign key - you use the one supplied to you by Google, Apple, and/or RIM.

           

          For Android apps: just link to the .bar file on a protected part of your website.

           

          For PlayBook apps: If your app is intended for a limited number of users, you can either side-load the app onto their tablet from a PC/Mac, use the sandbox option to to allow them access to unpublished apps in App World, or you can publish it in App World and control who can use it via a licensing server.

          Also, RIM is working on a "corporate" App World, where an enterprise can simply add their own private apps for internal use and control it via BES policies. They talked about it at DevCon in november. Not sure about a release date.

           

          For IOS: don't know, probably something to do with the entrerprise distribution options in App Store.

            How about Android and IOS?

            Is it possible to distribute builds to employees/clients of a company without a verisign certificate?
