If I build an iPad app for a company (for internal use), do I need to commit it to the App Store to install it on all company devices ?

@timbooo ok, thanks for the links. By the way, since it is 300 euros per year, maybe it is better to submit it to the app store and then download it for free... could you give me some info about it ? –  Patrick Apr 28 '11 at 11:44
    
In order to submit an app to the app store you have to have at least a 99 dollars/year Developer subscription. –  Martín Marconcini Apr 28 '11 at 12:16
    
@Patrick - well I think your company should decide on how to deploy your to your clients. I don't think it's that benefiting to use the App Store if the app does some internal stuff. –  timbooo Apr 28 '11 at 12:53
    
@timbooo And what about syncing the iPads with an iTunes account built for the company ? Is there a limit to the number of iPads synced with iTunes (just to have the same app on all iPads) ? If this is not possible, I think still it is more convenient to pay 99$ rather than 300$ per year, and share the app in this way, as long as there are not privacy issues. –  Patrick Apr 28 '11 at 13:40
    
@Patrick - according to this and this itunes does not have a device limit. So if you want to sync x iPads with 1 account you should be good to go. And if it shouldn't work, there are still the other options ;) –  timbooo Apr 28 '11 at 16:22
