    "TestFlight is gone today" - What does that mean? I thought they were bought by Apple?

      Hey Zach,

      Apple decided to discontinue the old TestFlight service (effective today), focusing instead its own TestFlight, which is a very different app distribution service. First off, Apple's TestFlight no longer supports Android apps (naturally). It also requires all testers to register with their iTunes account, and requires all beta builds to go through Apple's review process, which takes days. Finally, Apple's TestFlight only allows testing for operating systems running iOS 8 or better, meaning that any app that supports iOS 7 cannot test in it.

      Tryouts is our alternative to that :)

    The new Apple Testflight isn't "that" bad.

    For people you are willing to add to your developer team (basically, people you know) you can make them an internal tester and there's no review process. Easier setup than previous TF.

    For external testers, the beta review is a bummer, yes, but I've yet to have one take longer than 3 days and have never been rejected. Once reviewed, you can submit new builds and instantly get them in testers hands for 30 days and then you need to submit for beta review again. You can now have 1k testers per app which is way way better than 100 / per account and not change-able until you renew (yearly)
