    Hi All,
    I am in process of buying a developer license on behalf of company with more than 1000 employees.
    I have some queries and confusion for the license:
    1.If I buy 99$ license how many persons can use the same or each developer will have to buy one?
    2.If above is not possible then what about 299$ license can many people share the same license for developing application for enterprise?
    3.Can with the enterprise application license we can develop applications for our clients and distribute them?
    Thanks in advance

    The only difference between the standard and enterprise programs is whether you want to use the App Store (standard only) or in-house distribution (enterprise only). I don't believe there is a limit to the number of developers in either and one license will cover all of them.

    A single person or a company can purchase the $99 license to distribute apps via the app store. The $299 license is for companies to distribute applications internally. If you are developing applications for a specific company and not the public at large the $299 license is what you would probably need.

    When you sign up for the $99 license you register as an individual or a company. If you register as an individual you are the only programmer allowed on that list. If you register as a company I believe you have to file papers that show you are legally a company but can have an unlimited amount of developers use that account.
