Distributing an application outside of BlackBerry App World

Hi folks,


I have a BlackBerry 10 application that I'd like to distribute to some folks before it is available on BlackBerry App World.  Is that possible to do?  If so, how do you go about doing it?  Is it as simple as sending the BAR file, or do I need to do anything more involved?

Hi! You can send the BAR + debug token, but the debug token will expire in a month and the BAR will stop working.

Another option is sending a signed BAR but you won't be able to control it's further distribution.
