The problem is the .mobileprovision file mentioned is specifically
constructed to contain information about the devices on which the
authorization is allowed to run. If your device isn't in the
provisioning file, the app can't be installed on your device, period.
As was already mentioned, each developer account ($99/year) can
provision only up to 100 devices (it's intended for testing purposes
The only way Einstein can currently run on your iOS device is:
1. it gets accepted into the App Store somehow
2. your iOS device is jailbroken, in which case an un-signed build can
3. you purchase a developer account subscription and build from
source, signing with your private certificate obtained from the
Sad but true,

>>> But in all seriousness: iOS is a closed platform. Anyone buying iOS devices should know, that they subscribe to a higher entity who decides for them what's good and what's bad. For 90% of users, this is helpful (my parents can't decide if a program is malware or not, so thanks to the App Store, they have someone who filters out the bad apples before they even see them).

>>> Te Andoid market has been expanding like crazy. New Tablets and Phones in all shapes are flooding the market as we speak. The system is open, the developer licenses are open, even the source code f the OS is mostly open. But Android also has a lot of really bad software, spyware, worms, dialers, etc. that can be dangerous for the unsuspecting owner.
>>> I believe in choice, and after owning four iOS devices, I moved on. As soon as my Android tablet arrives (HTC Flyer because it has a pen), I will get Einstein ported to it and no longer worry about $99 to keep iOSEinstein running on my iPad.
