Ionic View: Invite users to view app and store the app preview ID in "My Apps" list


#1

Hello Ionic!

I am trying to send some friends an “invite” so they can view my app through Ionic View.

  1. Is there any way I can send them to their email an invite with a walkthrough to download Ionic View?
  2. Is there any way to save my app in their “My Apps” list for easy access?
    Currently they have to write the App preview ID EVERY time they open Ionic View.
  3. Is there a way of adding to favourites some apps you preview so I can access them later without the App preview ID?
  4. Should I just add them as collaborators?

Thanks!

I don’t think so.

I think you can add them as collaborators, but that also gives them rights on apps.ionic.io, so be careful: https://apps.ionic.io/app/YOURAPPID/config/collaborators[quote=“El_Pollito_Pio, post:1, topic:88099”]

See previous answer.[quote=“El_Pollito_Pio, post:1, topic:88099”]

Probably :wink:

If you want a more fleshed out beta distribution solution you will probably have to switch to HockeyApp or similar, but there you have to actually deploy .ipa (iOS) and .apk (Android) files and not just ionic upload.
