Managing a beta release program by using HockeyApp

HockeyApp provides a comprehensive solution for management of betas across your applications. All workflows for creating and managing betas are supported. Upload of beta builds is simple through integration with workflows used by a development team to produce builds, from manual local development machine builds to integration with CI servers. You can easily manage builds by placing them in a central location—the HockeyApp service.

With HockeyApp, you can take advantage of direct over-the-air delivery to testers and to internal or
external beta customer devices. Through a centralized dashboard, accessible via the web or native
mobile apps, testers can have access to beta apps and all available versions.

Using the convenient mobile app notification service, you can keep your users updated about new
versions or control versions in the wild by requiring users to update to a specific version. HockeyApp provides a rich set of management tools for users and devices. Users can sign in by using existing accounts in common single sign-on (SSO) providers such as Google, Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft, and Azure Active Directory. You can gain new testers via automatic recruitment and invitation via URL links or email. You also can control access to apps and beta per user or via teams, with fine-grained controls—even down to specific versions. HockeyApp also collects user device information, helping to manage UDIDs for iOS and to understand the device test coverage.
