Here is a detailed walk through on how to create an AdHoc distribution
If you have installed the latest XCode 4 GM and need to know how to deploy an Ad-Hoc target check out this article on developers.apple.com
After you enable UIFileSharingEnabled in your app and connect to your development device to iTunes you will notice that all of your files are exposed.
If you have been using something like the code below then your files will be exposed to the user from iTunes with UIFileSharingEnabled set to YES.
NSString *documentDir = [NSSearchPathForDirectoriesInDomains(NSDocumentDirectory, NSUserDomainMask, YES) objectAtIndex:0];
There is a simple workaround. Instead of the above code try this:
While working on my latest creation it was necessary to get a list of the files by file type, extension.

Hope this helps
In this followup we will list some of the app that we found that work and those that did not.
First the subject of setting up the iPaq Pocket PC. In the last post I noted that we could use an iPhone to tether an iPad without JailBreaking. You will still need to be in the developer program.
The iPaq Pocket PC will act as out WiFi Hub. The iPaq will not be used to actually transfer data, but is there to establish the connection between the devices. Not unlike your network at home, the iPhone will function as an internet modem, the iPaq will be the Hub that the iPad connects to.
While reviewing the new iOS4 I found some interesting sites with information for simpler ways to distribute AdHoc apps.
Here are a couple of sites of interest.
This really looks interesting - Hope it comes online soon

GameSalad is a great platform for getting started developing iPhone/iPod/IPad games.
In a previous post there are links to iProxy, an OpenSource project for IOS. In order to actually use the app you have to either have a Developers account or know someone who does.
Even then, you created the AdHoc wireless network on a computer. The computer, a Mac or PC, was acting as the Wireless Router. Neither the iPad or the iPhone allow you to Create an AdHoc network.
The process is simple to setup.
Still this is not portable. Sure this will work when your in your hotel room but we really want portable.
