Becoming an iOS Beta Tester for Puzzlebox Orbit

Joining TestFlight

  • While we wait for Apple to approve our iOS application for Puzzlebox Orbit, we would like to extend an invitation to our Kickstarter backers to join our beta testing team.
  • We are using a popular, free tool called TestFlight for helping us to distribute our application to our beta testers
  • Through this program, we are limited to 100 beta testers at any one time

Getting your UUID

  • After you have joined our team, we will need to add the UUID from your iOS device to our developer profile, so it can be tracked as 1 of the 100 available beta testing accounts
  • A popular tool for retrieving and submitting the UUID from an iOS device is called "UUIDViewer" and is available as a free download from the App Store

  • After your UUID is displayed press the "send UUID via mail" button
  • Please send the email with your UUID to support@…

Receive your beta tester invitation

  • After receiving your UUID email, we at Puzzlebox have to enter every UUID we receive manually into our Apple developer profile, generate a file, and update our TestFlight? account. This may take some time depending on our current workload, so please be patient.
  • Once we have added your UUID to our account, you should receive an email inviting you to install the Puzzlebox Orbit application
