    Testing iPhone on Simulator

    Required software

    Installing the application on the simulator
    1. Grab the latest build package for the simulator. The filename is something in this format: -Simulator..zip.
    2. Copy the file in the application folder (/Users//Library/Application Support/iPhone Simulator/4.1/Applications).
    3. Unzip the file, it will create a folder with an unique ID.
    4. If you had a previous version of the application, delete the folder containing it.
    5. Restart the iOS simulator.
    6. On the simulator, drag the standard icons to the left, so you can see our apps on the seconds page of the interface.
    7. Run the application and start testing.



    Testing iPhone on a Device

    Installing the ad-hoc provisioning profile
    1. Connect your iPhone/iPod touch to your computer and let iTunes sync.
    2. Drag the provisioning profile file (filename ends with .mobileprovision) to the iTunes icon on the Dock. The provisioning profile file should come with the application.
    3. Go to iTunes, select your iPhone/iPod touch, and click Sync;
    4. Confirm that the provisioning profile is on your iPhone/iPod touch. On the iPhone/iPod touch, go to Home screen->Settings icon->General->Profiles (at the bottom of the page above Reset). Confirm you have the new profile in your Profiles list.


    Installing the ad-hoc application file
    1. Grab the latest build package for devices. The filename is something in this format: -Ad Hoc..zip
    2. Unzip it and drag the application file, filename ends with .app, to the iTunes icon in the Dock.
    3. Go to iTunes, select your iPhone/iPod touch, and click Sync; the ad-hoc application should now be installed on your iPhone/iPod touch.



    Testing Android on a Device
    Try this:
    1. Download and install the Android SDK (http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html)
    2. Download the vBulletin package
    3. From the command line: adb install -r appname.apk


    A slightly easier method (doesn't require Android SDK)
    1. Download the APK and transfer it to your SD card.
    2. Use a file manager and install the APK.

    Apple devices running on iOS 3.1.3+ (older versions may work fine - no promises though )
    This means, iPad, iPod touch, iPhone 3 & 4

    Are you creating an iPad specific version?
