Deploy AdHoc Builds with Dropbox

Carl Brown walks you through his workflow to distribute ad hoc builds of iOS apps using Dropbox. It automatically deploys and emails links to install when it detects new git commits—pretty impressive. Even if you don’t need the whole processs there’s lots of pieces to learn from to set up your own flow. I didn’t know about iOS Beta Builder.

I still use TestFlight for my main beta team because of its installation tracking, release management, and great feedback mechanism. But sometimes you just want to do a one-off build for one or two people to test something and this workflow is a great technique to know.
