Installing the Provisioning Profile
Now that we know your device ID, we need to send you a Provisioning Profile to install on your iPhone or iPad so you can run a "beta" app on the device.
Note: Once GameTime is available on the App Store this step won't be necessary.
Here's how to install it:
- Save the application and provisioning profile to the computer you usually use to sync your iPhone or iPad. These two files will come in a ZIP file attached to an email.
Note: After unzipping the provisioning profile will look something like: Pachyderm_Beta_Testing.mobileprovision ... and the GameTime app file will look like: GameTime.ipa
- Launch iTunes.
- Drag the provisioning profile to iTunes or double-click it to install it.
- Make sure your iPhone/iPad is attached to your computer (i.e. via USB cable)
- Sync your device.
If this process goes as planned, you should see this Provisioning Profile installed on your iPhone/iPad by going to Settings > General > Profiles.
The new profile will be called "Pachyderm Apps Beta Testing". Note: See screenshots below for help. And special prizes if you can guess why its called "Pachyderm" (hint: it has something to do with PC)
We are now ready to install the GameTime App!
