Run on Device - Ad-hoc or production?

Kind of confused here. The "Run on Device" functionality on Titanium installs the app into iTunes. Does this mean it's installing the app as Ad-Hoc?

Currently I debug the app on the apps via xCode and it works fine. I implemented push notification and it works fine when I debug it via xCode but I need to test the push notifications for production use without having to wait a week.

So my question is, when I do "Run on Device", should I be installing the Production push cert or the Distribution push cert?

  • By production, I meant Development.

  • I use my development certificate with "Run on Device" and only use the Distribution certificate for actual Distribution.

    The same holds true for Push testing. I have two separate certificates and as long as I am the only (or part of a very small, non-AppStore) group, I use the development certificate.

  • Thanks for the reply.

    Is there way I can test the app with distribution push cert? Create ad-hoc build just for me somehow? I don't want to wait a week (average app approval process) and only find out that the push notifications don't work.

    • We don't allow you to do ad hoc builds through our tooling, but you might be able to use the generated Xcode project for that purpose.
