BetaBait Alternatives

Hi

I was planning to have BetaBait users test my App pre-launch, but they closed down earlier this year. http://TheBetaFamily.comlooks promising, but I'm wondering if you know of any other alternatives. Does anyone see a benefit to starting/joining-en-mass as reliable beta testers on a site like that? You know... just us FD'ers (without referring to FD of course)

My App is called Wazzow and is in the App Search/Discovery space - launching on Android first, then iOS (if approved), and eventually others...

Thanks for your suggestions
Clynton

Lookup TestFlight -https://www.testflightapp.com/android/

It is fairly popular for iOS testing. They seem to have Android as well now.

Hi Clynton,

I second Kostub's recommendation for TestFlight.

Also, I was the third editor to join Apple's App Store, so not only do I have a ton of knowledge about App Discovery, but I can also give you a professional perspective that many beta testers won't be able to provide.

Cheers!

Thanks Matt!

fwiw: TestFlight, as I anticipated, seems to be a good beta user (team) management platform - and you have to bring your own team. The setup was really fast and the App setup tool pulls certain info from the APK file.

TBF has an approval process (expected) and a freemium model. You can select to fund a test campaign starting at $0 and how many users you will accept (you select users after they apply if the test is public).

If folks are interested, I can keep this post updated with my findings - based on any suggestions you might have (so keep the ideas coming). I know sometimes you're not ready for certain details - but it's cool to go back through the discussion lists.

Thanks again.

Clayton,

Yes, I would like to know how your test works out. I am also creating a mobile app as a prototype for a larger online game and will need to test it. I was planning to have some of my target customers test it, but finding an organized service could make testing more efficient and effective.
