Deploy to Android device without connecting USB

I would like to deploy a test app to an Android device that is not physically located with me. Is there anyway to create a package that I can create to then be deployed to an Android device on a different computer?

Thanks in advance for any ideas!

    You can also put the app.apk on your own website, download site, etc. There aren't restrictions distributing Android apps. You will however need to tell/set the other device to allow third-party applications.

  • Yep - in your project folder you'll see a build/android/bin folder - in which you'll see an app.apk. Copy it to the other machine and drop it onto the phone - you can then install it.

    • My app.apk in that folder isn't updated. How can I force the rebuild?
      I started from the Alloy Two tabs standard template, and did a couple of changes to learn how it works, but if I put the APK on my phone, it still display the standard template.
