But BvG, it is so clear to me -- what happened to your telepathy skills? ;)

AirLaunch lets you bypass Apple's methods of installing your test apps 
on iOS devices, and lets you install via a wi-fi connection instead. 
Normally to install a newly built app for testing, you must connect the 
device to your Mac via USB cable, launch either iTunes or XCode, and 
drag your standalone there. If you're in iTunes, you also have to wait 
for a synch.

AirLaunch bypasses all that. It builds a set of files that you copy to a 
server or your Dropbox. (Using Dropbox is the easiest way for now, very 
quick.) On the device, you open a browser (or the Dropbox app,) tap a 
link, and your app installs. You don't need to mess with cabling, 
synching, or launching an Apple application.

You're right. I'm almost finished testing scripts that upload to the 
server from within AirLaunch, which will make installation even easier. 
When that's done, I'll [ANN] with more care. :)
