I am looking for an online tool that will facilitate usability testing of a mobile application before submitting to AppStore. I have tried usertesting.com - although the process was smooth, I had hard time finding someone in my target market. I am basically looking for a tool where I can have couple of users install the app through TestFlight or the like and have them go through a couple of usability tests recorded on video.

You might check out Testlio.  They are a recent graduate of Tech Stars Austin.  They made a nice pitch at demo day, and they seems to be up and running.

I just started using HockeyApp. It is a good way to get your app out to testers. Also, Apphance is similar. It is by uTest which is a site that helps you to find testers.

Why aren't you finding your target audience in person and watching them use your app first hand?

Bring someone with you, and have them record every time you verbally explain something to tester.  These are good places to improve UI or Help.

We actually found community members of our community and found out when they were going to be coming in to town.  We offered to pay for their taxi from airport to hotel, and then met them at airport, had them install the app, and then watched them use it, while they rode to their destination.
