Can I test my Game on my OWN iPhone without Apple License?

Hello,
I want to know, if I can use my own Game for my own iPhone, or do I have to get a Apple Developer License?
I just want to play on my own device, is that possible?

    No, you have to have an Apple Developer License. That allows you to build the GS viewer onto your phone or create a provisional adhoc build. On computer testing only without it :/

    Afraid not, you need to have the Apple License

    To publish, you'll need provisioning profiles. You cannot get those unless you have a license.

    It´s not possible to convert my work in a .API file and paste it via iTunes?
    Also .API is android. That doesnt run on ios devices, only androids. And you need gamesalad pro for android publishing.

    .APK is Android.
    .IPA is iTunes.

    Yes i know. Typo on my part. I assumed he meant apk, since gamesalad doesnt give you ipa. Only .app

    You can make .ipa from .app

    "The only way I know to do this is to get the .app file in Mac, put it into a folder called "Payload". Then you have to ZIP this folder and change its name from "Payload.zip" to "MyAppName.ipa". Mac will ask if you are sure you want to change the extention, select "YES". Now you can drag and drop this file into itunes."

    You can hack up all the .ipa files you want. Without a provisioning profile nothing is going to work on a device.

    It's not my fault I never learned to take responsibility for anything. ;)

    And whats with cydia? Is it possible to Upload Games there and if it would work , is it legal?

    Cydia is not supported by Apple and therefore we cannot discuss anything jailbreak here as we rely on Apple for income.

    Bottom line as far as this forum is concerned the answer is and always will be NO you must have an Apple developer account to do anything regarding iOS

    Cheers

    Im gonna go ahead and close this as its been answered multiple times and no further discussion is really needed for this topic.
