First of all I sincerely want to thank you. Your advice will help me greatly and my students will be delighted to see their application to work in the classroom.
You tell me :
Save it to where? If you are referring to Google sheet by
(thanks to the data on sheet) then this option is available for compiled app on phone but for the project you share, every student will have his/her own copy of the project and would require to connect it to a data source that the student can connect to.
If by done through live you mean to install the app on students’ phones then the answer is yes, it is possible. When the students run the project using the live app on phone, they are actually running their own copy of the project not yours. So in practice, each student is running a different project which happen to be very similar.
However, I wanted to make sure I understood correctly. The email I receive with the iOS application, if I send it to my students will they be able to download and keep it? Because a message is displayed in the received email:
Please note that you can only test one project on your mobile device at a time.
*This is a "one-time use only" link. It will expire in one hour. It is intended for testing purposes only.*
*Please do not share the link.*
*If you want to invite others to test your project, please enroll in the [Apple Developer Program]*
Knowing that my application is a small project just for my students (and not for the purpose of marketing it or otherwise) I would like to be able to share it with them and they can play it without having to put it on the apple store but I don’t know if this is really possible.
Also, if the students download the app, the backups on google sheet can be recovered by myself? Or not ? If this is not the case, you might as well make “backups” on own table
