Apple enterprise developer program explained

A couple days ago we discussed both Apple's Volume Purchase Program and Business to Business  (B2B) Apps.

If you are creating an app for use inside your business, the Enterprise Developer Program allows you to distribute that app to your employees, inside your company.

This program does not have a limit on the number of devices per app and does not require per-device registration for constant builds like ad-hoc beta testing does, though it does require that each device be submitted as a member of the organization's program.

You are not allowed to sell access to apps in the Enterprise Developer Program – doing so is against the guidelines and will get you booted from the program. Also, apps deployed this way are not eligible for In-App Purchase.

This program is used by many Fortune 500 companies to create apps internal to their employees.

The Enterprise Developer Program costs $299/year and a valid DUNS number. A previous restriction that required applicants to have at least 500 employees has been dropped.
