I'm new in Apple world and I developed an app in Xamarin Studio (Mac) . Now I need the ipa file , so the client can test it and then publish it in AppStore, but I don't know the steps to generate it, like all the steps after I created an apple id. What kind of certificate I need, it's a paid one or not, if the provisioning profile is mandatory, if i need an iTunes Connect account, how many stuff I need to add in Xcode and keychain.
Do you know some sort of article with all this information? Or can you summarize the process of getting the installer for the app?
Thanks in advance!
