Getting your mobile apps into the hands of your testers or even to your ad-hoc users can sometimes be a difficult task. What some people don’t know is that when you use PhoneGap Build services, the build includes a QR Code that users can scan to install the app on their device. This QR Code can also be downloaded and emailed to users anywhere in the world who can scan it and install the app. Please note, for iOS you are required to have the user's device UDID registered in the provisioning profile.

Here’s how you can use these QR Codes.

  1. Build your mobile app using PhoneGap Build service.
  2. Log into your account at https://build.phonegap.com.
  3. Click the app you want to send.
  4. On the right-hand side you will see the QR Code. Right-click the code, and select Save Image.
  5. Email that image to testers or ad-hoc users.
  6. Testers or ad-hoc users can scan the QR Code to begin installation.
