Private Application?


Hi everyone. I’m brand-new to native mobile apps, so please bear with my ignorance.

I’m building an app that only needs to run on a couple of devices for one client; it’s not an application I would make available to the public via Google Play or the App Store.

What installation options can I provide to the client, who is in a different state in the US?

  1. You can still use TestFlight or Android’s closed beta test where you would invite them as testers so they can install the app.
  2. Use third parties like installrapp, hockeyapp etc.,
  3. Simply email the IPA / APK if they can learn to install manually.


Thanks for the ideas @manojdcoder. After some experimentation with SideKick, I think the easiest way would be to provide the APK url.
