Downloading installation packages
After you build a mobile app, download the app installation package to your device. You can also share the app with other users by providing them with a direct download link or QR code.
When you successfully generate an installation package in the mobile channel for your app at least once, the build panel includes several methods that you can use to download or distribute the package.
Open your mobile channel:
In the navigation pane of App Studio, click Channels.
In the Current channel interfaces section, click the tile that represents a mobile channel for your app.
In the upper-right corner of the mobile channel configuration page, select the operating system for which you want to download the installation package:
- To download the installation package for an iOS app, click the Build iOS app icon.
- To download the installation package for an Android app, click the Build Android app icon.
In the Build app pane, obtain the installation package:
- To download the installation package through your browser, click .
- To download the installation package to a mobile device, scan the available QR code with the device of your choice.
To distribute the installation package, share the QR code or direct download link with your users or distribute the
.ipafiles directly.QR codes and download links are unique to either iOS or Android app builds. Do not share an operating system-specific code or link across different platforms.
