Android daily builds
Daily builds for Android are available as an opt-in beta from the Google play store. You can opt-in using this link. This will register you as a Beta user and then allow you to install QGroundControl daily builds from the Google Play store. Once installed it will automatically update itself to the latest version if changes are made.
Installing iOS Beta using Test Flight
The iOS version of QGroundControl is currently in open Beta. You can opt-in to the Beta by adding your email address here. Keep in mind that due to device restrictions on iOS only WiFi connections are supported. Once installed you will be notified of new versions through the Test Flight app. The release frequency of iOS beta builds is on an ad-hoc basis more on the order of a new build every week or two.
