To install any application on your own device, you need to sign it with
a "Developer certificate".

To get that, you need to be a member of the "Apple Developer

You can be a paying member, in which case your certificate
lasts for one year.

You can also be a member for free (you still need to register and accept
an agreement). In this case, your certificates will last for one
week. So, you need to resign and reinstall the application every week,
as it stops working when the certificate expires.

To sign the application, you can build it from source, or use some tool to
sign the binary with your certificates.

Maybe it is important to note that apple can deny membership to
anyone they choose, and of course change any of the conditions.

The agreement is available here:
