    we have developed an application wit B4a and b4i.

    Installation on the android was easy and the application runs fine.
    Now, we struggle with the problem to install the app on different IOS devices.
    The app is just for a group of persons and we don't want/need to publish the app in the
    apple store.
    I found the b4i Bridge and it seams to me, that this is a possibility.
    But this means, that the user need to install the bridge and i need to initialize the transfer, right?

    Is there any other way to install the app without bridge or apple store?

    Thank you for any advice and sorry for the stupid question ;-)

    Kind regards

    Add all the users' udid to provision file and send them the IPA, they will install via itunes.

    Hi tufanv, thank you for your reply. But Itunes can just install confirmed and authorized apps from the apple store, right?
    My problem is, that the upload to the apple store wont work, or i miss a step

    Hi Erel, thank you again. I can transfer the ipa know on my iphone but i go crazy because i can't do anything with this file on my iphone. I have read i can install apps on the iphone with itunes but my version (12.9.0) don't have the feature to install apps anymore. I start to hate apple more than ever before :-(

    Use OTA deployer.

    Erel, i DID! I created the link with OTA deployer and i have transfered the link to my iphone.
    The options i got in safarie are:
    - open in FileExplorer
    - more... Airdrop, Messages, Mail, icloud Drive and Import With FielExplorer.

    File Explorer saves the file anywhere at my disk. if i try to open the file ios tells me that ipa is not supported.
    Please help me!

    OK, now, i get the message to open the file with itunes. I tell him to do this but then he can't download the file. What may be wrong?

    Send the link in an email and open it directly from the device.
