Building an iPhone app for myself

Hey guys

A quick question: let’s say I want/need to create an app for my iPhone but I do not want to sell it. For example an application that is only for my own personal use, do I absolutely need to go through AppStore? is there another way to create the App and just download it to my phone?



No need for the app store for your own personal apps.

You will need an Apple developer account. You will transfer a development provisioning profile downloaded from Apple to your phone. When you build your app, you do not check off “build for app store”. You then use xcode to transfer the built app to your phone.

See Device Deployment for Testing in Xojo iOS Docs.

Thank you. I will look into it.
