how to deploy a build to other's device

I am creating a cascades applicaitn. My client asked me for a build to review. He wants to run it on his BB10 device. As he is far away from me, I can't get hold of his device and install for him. So, what's the best way give him a build?

 

I can get his device pin for creating debug token. But, can he install the token and the app without BB10 SDK and tools? Such as, copy the files to his device and open them?

He can use DDPB program to install application, but he needs your debug token, and as far I know, it cant be deployed without Momentics IDE. Or you can sign application with proper BBWorld certificate but be aware of versioning (you cant sign  same version twice, you need to increase version number)

is DDPB for playbook only? My app is for BB10 mobile phones, such as z10

Coolneo, do yo u mean you do a release build in Momentics and sign with the proper bbworld certificate. then, send it to you client. your client install it to his device with a google chrom plugin?

 

which plugin do you use?

Re: how to deploy a build to other's device

nope never tried i always give release builds to my customer !! I think BB World should incorporate features where i can privately share builds with customers like we have in Windows Market Place.

 

Please pardon me if we already have that feature !!

DDPB works on BB10 too. I use it frequently, simple and effective program, I prefer it over the Chrome plugin.
