We have used this product on several high-profile iOS and Android applications, after using TestFlight for a couple of years; when TestFlight was acquired, Android support was deprecated. Managing two alpha/beta distribution solutions is cumbersome -- the Google Play service is prone to accidental mistakes in terms of release by inexperienced clients, and the TestFlight process is less streamlined for iOS distribution than the latest using Fabric (Crashlytics, Beta, Answer stack). It is simple, free, and platform agnostic -- what more could you hope for?
Used to be our go-to deployment platform but immediately after Apple bought and integrated it they dropped a handful of features, including the ability to deploy Enterprise IPA's. Not sure what the situation is now, but we since migrated to TestFairy and have had no problems.
been a few years since i've used test flight. we used it at my startup over 5 years ago when they were first starting out. help alleviate many of the issues related with app distribution back then.
When it comes to beta testing on iOS, there's really no other solid option. TestFlight is reliable, easy to use and has a set of great API's (albeit somewhat hidden).
We previously used TestFlight to deploy test apps, but since Apple purchased them we've been using HockeyApp so that we can test both iOS as well as Android.
We employ HockeyApp to test new builds for our mobile applications. It makes it very easy to send out early builds for stakeholders to test.
We use Testflight for Alha & Beta testing of mostly corporate apps we create for our customers
