Deploy iOS App with dev certificate

Hi Experts!

I ran into a problem:
Our dev team built an iOS app, including the certificate needed by the client/end user device..

On our test iPad mini it works fine: I can install the app including the "Profile" (with runs in background). The app works fine.
On a different device (newest iPod touch) the app icon is greyed-out after installation...

Both devices run iOS 7.0.04 (11B554a).

Any hints on how to analyse/solve the problem?

I'm not "that much" into the development, so please be patient :)

Greetings!

Developer apps can only be installed on registered devices. As a developer you can register up to 100 devices. So your iPod needs to be registered on the developer portal to be able to run the app.

If you want the app to go public, you can send it to the app store or make it available as an in-house app. To publish in-house apps you'll need an enterprise developer account instead of the standard account.

Hello Peter,
thank you for your reply!
We figured it out too with our devs, added the UID to the certificate and enrolled the app again -> works!

A Question about "going public": As far as I understood, enterprise program only allows in-house publishing (as you said too). Is there a may of app distribtion to a customer, without the neeed of colleting their UIDs and without making it "public" in app store?

Thanks in advance!

Sure, you'll need to have your customer get an enterprise developer id and set the app to that id. Then the customer can deploy that app in-house since it belongs to their Developer ID.
