Crashlytics download issue and provisioning profile debug

Unable to Download App

I was asked to fix an issue with an existing  app called SmartPak wherein users on iOS 10.1+ would see a warning message about the app slowing down their phone if they were using a 64 bit device.   The fix itself was pretty straightforward – the architecture settings did not support 64 bit builds and a Digimarc library needed to be updated.

As I prepared to distribute the app for internal QA, I ran into a more difficult problem.  I was unable to download the Adhoc Crashlytics build to any of my test devices.

SocialCafe iPhone App

I recently completed the first version of a new iPhone app that I’ve been workingicon_socialcafe_black_654 on called the SocialCafe.   The app allows you to take a picture (or pull one from your Camera Roll), add some audio, save to your personal Dropbox account and share with friends via e-mail, Facebook and Twitter.

I just entered a beta testing phase and am actively looking for some testers to provide some feedback.    If you’d like to help out, please visit the homepage at http://www.socialcafe.com and add yourself to the beta sign-up.

Since the app is not yet in the App Store, I am making use of a wonderful service called TestFlight.

SocialCafe Screenshot

You can get a feel for the app before you even sign-up for the beta by looking at some interactive screenshots for a quick walk-through.   You can do this on the SocialCafe homepage or on the other great service that I using called the AppDemoStore.

Here is a direct link to the screenshot demo:

Hope you can help out with beta testing! Looking forward to some feedback.
