Distribute and install a pre-release version of your app

Distribute an app to your testers in a few seconds

Distribute and install a build

You can distribute and install every build version of your app you uploaded to Updraft. Just select your specific app build and scroll down on the right context field.

At the bottom of the right context field within the Build History you will have different possibilities to distribute and install easily your uploaded binaries:

  • Public installation link

  • QR-Code

  • E-Mail notification with installation link and QR-Code

On the installation page of your app and in the email notification, you can see all the information about the release notes, the app version and the build version. So it is always clear which app you are about to download.

Public Installation URL- just copy to clipboard the URL of your app and send it to your devices. After that you will be redirected to the web-app to download it.

The Link is available for everyone if you share it within Slack or via E-Mail - be careful.

QR-Code - install your app within seconds by using the QR- Code

You can enable the QR-Code for every uploaded app version within the Build History.

  1. Just click on Enable the QR-Code as soon you have selected your app version you would like to install on your device.

  2. Scan the QR-Code and you will be redirected to the mobile web-ap to download & install your uploaded app.

The QR-Code feature improves our app testing and app distribution process as hell. This I would call a real process improvement!

E-Mail Notification - distribute an app to your e-mail

You can easily send your self every app version you or your team members uploaded. Just click on the send to me -button of your selected app version and check your e-mail inbox.

  1. Send to me - you will receive a notification email with detail information about downloading your uploaded file
