ios mobile app deployment issue

we use over the air ios ad hoc deployment.  We do this by exporting a .ipa file and linking that file on a web server in a .plist file.  This allows us to send them a URL link to a provisioned device and install a new version of the app for beta testing.  This process has worked fine until iOS 8.0.1.  When the user clicks on the link to install the app, they get a message saying "do you want to install app . . ." and when they click YES nothing happens.  The app never gets installed.  Is there a work around for this?  How can we do over-the-air ad hoc installs without being an enterprise developer?  Is there something that needs to change in the formatting of the .plist file?

Hi G J,

Try http://www.diawi.com/ for adhoc test.
Not sure about your web server method but Diawi is the safe and easy way to test beta version of ios app.

Thanks & Regards,

But is there a work around for this issue of over the air deployment - not working from ios8.1 onwards?

Hi GJ,

Then there is an problem with your build. Your build is developed on 8.0 sdk Xcode. Please make sure your xcode is update with latest ios sdk then build your app and then try to install on latest device. Make sure about the version of Xcode, iOS Sdk version and device version, That will help you.

Let me know this helps or not.

Thanks & Regards,
