Default Beta to Release

Hi folks. This is my first post so go easy on me!!

I was wondering for those of you who do beta test releases, how long is it before you follow up with the actual release? Also how do you go about releasing it for iOS i.e putting it in the app store then withdrawing it or ad hoc distribution? It seems a lot easier to achieve this with Google Play as there is no review process.

Or do you even bother with beta testing at all?

For The Woods I submitted the game to the AppStore, go it approved but did not realise it. I gave out promo codes to the beta testers. The the actual final game release was 1.2 update.

It still got classed asa new realise on theappstore and all app websites.


It seemed to work great doing this but it has to be an almost final beta


I think you can us test flight now which maybe better.
