TestFlight SDK support

I'm a beta tester for an iOS app whose developer is using TestFlight (http://testflightapp.com).

TestFlight makes distributing test builds much, much easier. The testers register in TestFlight and when the developer uploads a new binary into TestFlight, the distribution happens over the air, rather than having to get each of them to side-load the app. It also supports Android builds. And they promise that the current featureset is free, at least for the time being.

It would be great to see support for TestFlight available for Mag+ apps. One of the most frustrating things about getting useful UI testing done with new Mag+ apps and platform changes is the amount of time it takes to get testers to download the binaries and install them, especially for single-issue apps when the files are enormous.

Hi Wes - 

Sure, we know TestFlight well and agree it's a great service. There's no reason you shouldn't be able to use TestFlight with a Mag+ app. When you do an app build on Publish, one of the files you get is a .ipa file, which is the ad hoc build you would upload to TestFlight to distribute. If you're finding that's not working for some reason, let us know - I know we have several customers who have used TestFlight in the past, as have we.
