TestFlight integration into Appcelerator

You must Login before you can answer or comment on any questions.

Hi,

I'm planning on using TestFlight for the beta testing of my app on IOS devices. I saw this module https://marketplace.appcelerator.com/apps/744 which offers TestFlight integration into appcelerator. My question is if it is necessary for me to integrate this module in order for me to be able to upload my ipa to TestFlight? And if not, what benefits would adding this module offer over over other approaches?

Hi, you don't need any module to just distribute your app to testers via testflight.

Using the module in the marketplace, or this one will allow you to integrate the TestFlight SDK into your app.

  • The value of the sdk is worth the installation of the modules, imho.

  • Would also like to let the community know about our TestFlight module. We have designed it so that you can decide which SDK library you want to use. So just tested to new 1.2SDK today and it works well. Just remember to swap in the app token rather than the team token.

Hi Lawrence

In order to test an application on the real device iphone you have two approaches.

1) Using the apple device signing certificate using the apple developer account, which will be for a particular device.

2) using the Test Flight module, where apple developer account not required.

so if go with Test Flight the main denefit will be that you dont need to create different device certificate, just adding the module of test flight in the project and then upload the ipa on test flight and send the link to different user to install and test it.

Using Test flight is lot better than the apple developer account procedure for testing.

Yes you need to add the test Flight module in the project in order to upload the ipa on the test flight site.

  • An apple developer account and associated provisioning profiles are ALWAYS required WHENEVER dumping your code onto a foreign piece of hardware. This applies to TestFlight adhoc distributions as well.
