Mobile Submission Question (iphone and testflight)

I built a mobile app for ios; For the purpose of the contest, can I submit my "iphone simulator" build files as opposed to my "iphone" files? In order to distribute (use testflight, etc), I have to pay to become an apple developer, and I'm wondering for the contest if I can avoid that.

If not, how do we use testflight to submit the app. Simply, who is on the team that I am distributing the beta to?

    Hi biancasayan,

    Thanks for your question! You do not need to be an Apple Developer to use TestFlight, however you do need to be an Apple Developer to work with the iOS SDK.

    For the competition, all submissions must include a way to access to the submitted application for testing. You can provide this by uploading your installation files with your submission, including a link for us to download your app, or by sending a test build via TestFlight. For iOS apps that are not yet listed on the App Store, TestFlight is the most commonly used option.

    Please check out the TestFlight help pages (http://help.testflightapp.com) for some great tutorials about how to set up your account and send a test build. You’ll need to distribute your build to ChallengePost for testing. Our account email and UDID’s can be found on the FAQ page under “How can I provide ChallengePost with access to test my application?”

    If you have further questions please email support@challengepost.com.

    Thanks!
    Serena
