Richie Hawtin is demoing a new NI app on his iPad.

How is it possible to download an app without going through iTunes, and therefore making the app available to everybody?

Wouldnt be any way to have betatesters if there wasnt. Its probably still through the same download mechanisms, just with restricted access.

There are at least 2 ways to distribute apps to beta testers without going through the app store itself.

Testflight is one mechanism (works over the air), another is directly copying a pre-authorised app to the device via iTunes. Either way, if you managed to get hold of the app file it would not work on your device with some serious hacking.

Peace,
Andy.

Yes of course. Very valid point.

Interesting. In hindsight it is obvious for beta testing purposes.
Never really thought about it before now.

Hmmm.... any ideas what the app is or what it will do? Unfortunately, that screenshot shows nothing. My guess is that it will be some DJ app and won't be useful to me.... :-( Let's hope it supports audiobus though. :-)

Maybe something like a Kore Touch App for controlling all NI plugins?!
