iOS Developer Program University Student Agreement & Distribution

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks
This post applies to students who are participating in a University class to develop and distribute applications to other class participants.  The links below take you to Apple legal documents that govern distribution and use of the apps developed in our course.  The licenses mostly protect Apple, but section 5.0 in the first link is the one you'll want to read.  

The second link describes how to distribute apps you develop to testers. 

The third link specifically addresses small-scale distribution of apps to your development team and testers via Web servers and e-mail, something called Ad Hoc distribution.  For example, I can imagine a developer contest on a community college or high school campus in which the school encourages students to develop a "school" app idea. The best ones are selected, and those students could be formally recognized or win an award.  Such a program could involve a whole campus and serve to build school spirit and better engage students in both problem and project-based learning.  The winning students could then participate with the development team to build the app into a commercial-grade app all students could use with progress reported on in the school paper, etc.   There's a lot of brainpower out there in the student population, so it makes sense to leverage it for something potentially meaningful to students.  Stanford, of course, has a cool student app developer page you can checkout HERE

Before any distribution can happen, a developer must create an icon of the app for the user interface.  Apple recommends using a graphic designer for the app which must comply with all of Apple's human user interface guidelines.  Once the icon is developed, the application must be archived, and then the developer can begin the process of distributing the app.  Good luck!
