Share applications with members of the development team.
- Dev team creates a version of an application.
- Dev team uploads the application to the Application Center
- A tester runs the Application Center installer application and installs the app on their mobile device. and tests it.
- The tester rates the application and submits feedback, which is visible to the developer from the Application Center console.
