Using revMobile you can just install an app right onto the iPhone(soon the iPad). I think you still need a provisioning profile from apple but you do not need to go through the App store.

And, FWIW, don't take these recent discussions as the final word on anything about revMobile. Most comments here on the list about the new license agreement from Apple are just guesses at best and downright misleading at worst. Some can't seem to help airing out their worst fears in public. I've seen this so many times ..... I would not make any judgements about any of this until you hear otherwise from runRev.
