The TestFlight app allows testers to install and beta test apps on iOS, tvOS and watchOS devices. Testers must receive an invite directly from a developer first before they can begin testing with TestFlight. Once invited, testers can redeem invitations in TestFlight to install, test, send valuable feedback, and get updates for the beta app.
*Note: TestFlight itself does not allow for discovery of beta apps.
To start testing:
• All the app developer needs is your email address to send you an invitation
• Then accept the invitation either in the TestFlight iOS app or with a redemption code found via a link in the beta invitation
• Once accepted you can install the prerelease build
• The TestFlight app will notify you when new builds are available
• To update to the latest build, simply tap Update
Developers can invite TestFlight Beta Testers on the App Store Connect website:
• Create a version of your app and upload new builds
• Choose which prerelease version of your app you wish to release to testers
• Invite new testers by simply providing their email address
Apple collects crash data and statistics related to your use of TestFlight and Beta Apps in a personally identifiable form. This information may be provided to the App's Application Provider who may contact you regarding your use of their Beta App.

The Best Website Publishing App Out There
I love, love, love the Wordpress ios app. I've been a beta tester for a few years now and that experience is so worth it too! They have an open platform for beta testing, so anyone interested can participate. By doing so you get access to the latest features which never fail to be AMAZING!
I've used several other site building apps and none can hold a candle to the WordPress one. You can do almost everything that you could using a desktop and browser based editor, which is truly miraculous I think. Keep up the good work WordPress and thanks for the steady stream of new features.
Feedback for developers of TestFlight itself
February 17 6:39 AM US central time
Test flight has stopped sending me notifications for updates of EACH of two different apps which I am beta testing now.
My settings for TestFlight notifications: allow notifications, send ALERTS (which require user response before they will be dismissed, so you CAN'T miss them), show notifications in lock screen AND notification center, sounds turned on, show badge app icon. In other words, all options ON (GREEN).
None of those things happen.
I simply have to open TestFlight before any use of either beta app to see if there's been an update. There have been such updates, and again, no notification whatsoever, in at least the past few weeks, at least three times. I discovered the first time by accident.
I'm not complaining about the app in general, only noting that the notification functionality is not working for *me* right now. I've informed both beta app developers, but can't find any specific way to inform this app's developers (Apple) other than this rating.
I am on the last iOS version 10 before 11 came out, on an iPhone 7+.
Makes beta testing simple
For the most part, this app makes it so easy to download the apps that we are beta testing without having to navigate developer sites to find them, which can be daunting, especially for those of us who are blind or have other disabilities that require the use of Voiceover. That leads me to something else. For everything that I have used it for, redeeming invite codes and download for new builds of apps in progress, it seems to be completely accessible.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
