TestFlight Re-Register Loop?

If you’re a TestFlight user, you know:

  1. How awesome TestFlight is, and,
  2. How easy it is to use once you’re up and running.

That said, when I updated to iOS 5 on GM day, I discovered a very annoying problem - TestFlight required that I re-register before every install….EVERY. At the time, there weren’t any solutions to the newly discovered problem, and eventually, I got used to the tedious process…

That is, until now!

So here I am sitting down with my laptop when I get a TestFlight email notification from my wife ( cc/ Mimmie Huang )

Me: It’s so annoying that I still have to re-register before installing a build on TestFlight.

Mimmie: Yea, other people have reported that too…

Me: [ is simultaneously googling “testflight have to reregister” and clicks on the first link that looks helpful ]

Me: …wow babe. So I google to see if there’s a fix…and I end up encountering YOU on the webpage. LOL

Mimmie: Hah. I told you. I’ve been trying to help you guys!

It’s always funny when you accidentally run into your friends’ work on the internet. It’s even funnier when that person is your wife.
