11. Packaging for Stores > Custom Distribution

Custom Distribution

On some platforms we can also distribute our app through our own web server with the right MIME type configuration. Symbian and BlackBerry devices will receive and install any webapp executable file without problems.

Android and Nokia N9 will install apps from our server if the user allows third-party server installation in her settings.

Other platforms, such as iOS or Windows Phone will never allow the installation from a source other than the official store.

Tip

There are some ways to configure our developer devices to install our own apps but this is only for testing. These techniques are out of the scope of this book.
