Packaging an Ad Hoc App
The final step you need to take is to package your Flash movie into an iPhone App using the Ad Hoc profile (New!). The final step in creating your Ad Hoc App is to package your Flash App for distribution. The Ad Hoc distribution process is very similar to the final App Store Packaging publication process. There are some differences. The main change is that you must use the Ad Hoc Profile you created in the previous section. Without the Ad Hoc Profile your Ad Hoc deployment method will not work correctly.
Publish and Package an Ad Hoc App
- In Flash, open the iPhone App you want to publish and package as an Ad Hoc App.
- Open the Properties panel.
Click the iPhone Settings Edit button.
The iPhone Settings dialog box opens, displaying three tabs: General, Deployment and Icons.
- Click the Deployment tab.
- Click Browse, and then select your Published P12 certificate file, and then enter your password.
- Click Browse, and then select the Ad Hoc Distribution Profile you downloaded.
- Click the Deployment – Ad Hoc option.
Flash launches the iPhone Packager tool and generates (6-10 minutes) an IPA iPhone App file in the same folder as your Flash files.
- Locate the IPA file and send it to anyone in the Ad Hoc Provisioning Profile list. Ask them to drag the file onto iTunes and sync their device. When the sync completes you will be able to launch your App from your iPhone.
