There is a link to a plist file that you can use in the second answer (the one with 9 votes): http://stackoverflow.com/questions/...ting-an-ipa-over-the-air-with-dropbox-ios-7-1
Hi Erel,
I've followed the example above, but when I click from my iphone (5c with iOS 7.1.1) on the link
B4X:
<a href="itms-services://?action=download-manifest&amp;url=https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/xxxxxxxx/manifest.plist?dl=0">My App</a>
doesn't happen nothing: no error, no advice ... nothing.
If I click the link from a PC it download the manifest.plist, and if i copy the url inside for the ipa file and put id in the address bar it download the ipa file correctly, so the links are correct.
The iphone is already in the provision file with which I've build the ipa file, anyway I've also dowloaded it into the iPhone like documented in the example.

What could it be?

Thanks

Yes , the device is in the provison file. If I use the OTA Deployer of B4I it works fine. I'd liked to use my own server to deploy the betas to my customers. What I see of different between your OTA Deployer link and the one I've used it's that your link encode the entire url parameter. I will try the same with my link.

OK, it works! I had to encode the url parameter.
From

B4X:
itms-services://?action=download-manifest&amp;url=https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/xxxxxxxx/manifest.plist?dl=0

to

B4X:
itms-services://?action=download-manifest&url=https%3A%2F%2Fdl.dropboxusercontent.com%2Fs%2Fxxxxxxxx%2Fmanifest.plist%3Fdl%3D0
