Every time you build in XCode is has been building a "standalone" app in order to run it. It's been build it into a derived data directory.

To find the derived data directory.

Window | Organizer
Projects tab
Select your project on the left
You'll see the Derived Data path
Click the arrow to open the Derived Data path in Finder
Go into Build/Products/Debug or Build/Products/Release

You can also have XCode export an archive of your program.

Change to a release scheme
Product | Archive
Window | Organizer
Archives tab
Select your project on the left
Select the latest release version in the archive
Save the Application somewhere
