Deployment can mean a number of things on Bitrise: you can deploy your app to test devices, or to, with a public install page that you can freely distribute so that anyone can test the app; you can deploy your app to a simulator, to conduct UI testing, for example; and of course you can deploy your apps to online stores, such as the App Store or the Google Play Store.

Our Deployment section is divided into two subsections:

Deploying with Ship

The deploying guides in the above sections talk about deploying with the official Bitrise deployment Steps.

We recommend checking out Ship, our deployment solution that aims to save you a lot of headache in publishing your apps: Deploying with Ship.

Cross-platform apps

Don’t worry: this does not mean that only native iOS and Android apps can be deployed using Bitrise. The guides are just as useful for deploying cross-platform apps. For the specifics, check out the guide for your platform type in the Getting started section.
