Stupid Question 149: What is sideloading?
What is sideloading?
I talked about sideloading in the previous blog post (http://www.irisclasson.com/2013/02/13/windows-store-app-enterprise-deployment-mini-guide/), but realized I hadn’t explained what sideloading is. Some devices such as tablets and mobile phones have their own OS specific distribution center, such as Windows Store, Marketplace, Google Play, App Store and so on. Sideloading is whenever you install an application not using the standard distribution method. Not all OS allow sideloading, some do when certain requirements are met, and some have to be ‘jailbreaked’ to allow you to sideload apps. Stupid Question 132: What is jailbreaking?
