What Members are Saying About MacDeveloper
Looks really nice. The initial sign on process was very smooth. Bring on the feedback!
As a heavy Mac/Apple user with a home local network of 7 machines, a NAS server (and one windows); I'm always looking for ways to properly manage system applications, traffic flow as well as easy access to our home media center. MacDeveloper is a fantastic opportunity for me to not only beta some really cool applications, but also learn how they're built so I can build/customize my own. The very first app I tested was a home run and something I use regularly. Awesome site, thank you!
I have no IDEA how I had never known of MacDeveloper before accidentally stumbling upon it. Apple should probably put MacDeveloper on their packaging for us (nincompoops) to get to know it sooner.
During my 12 years of developing software for the Mac, we always had to cobble together a force of beta testers for every product. It was not organized, scientific or simple. Now that has changed. MacDeveloper is focused on creating an army of professional beta testers and the mechanism that is available to any Mac developer. Just as they did with prMac, MacDeveloper works amazingly well for all the parties involved. The beta testers get great software, developers get feedback from hundreds of great testers. I would highly recommend this service but it would be giving away a major secret to being a successful Mac developer.
What a totally brilliant service. MacDeveloper is the most useful thing I've seen come out for developers in a long time. Prior to release we can now test out new versions of our product on a variety of different systems, and get really constructive feedback from sophisticated users. It's the perfect testing ground for developers using the agile software development techniques.
I am in the Beta Pool here at MacDeveloper and it's truly a unique and highly productive way to work together with the developers. What's great is that the site is so easy to use and that it has a clean design. Beta testing has never been this much fun!
MacDeveloper is incredible! We're already getting more feedback from this platform than from the beta testing mailing list we created first and that
list is 500 people deep! Keep up the amazing work.
The best place to beta test a mac product I've ever found. The beta pool is just amazing -- beta testers give invaluable feedback and they're always willing to help you.
After some procrastination I decided to give the MacDeveloper service a try for my upcoming release. I must say that I was quite impressed and my expectations were not only met but exceeded. The group of beta testers that are a part of MacDeveloper are very knowledgeable and skilled at beta testing. They are also diverse so when it comes to having an app tested on different OS versions, configurations, languages, etc. it's all covered. The beta testers are also polite and a pleasure to work with, as is the MacDeveloper staff. And the process and interface for using MacDeveloper couldn't be easier. I think that I can confidently say that using MacDeveloper will make anyone's app better and I would recommend this service to anyone. It has made a believer out of me! So once again thank you to Ray and his staff for this excellent service.
MacDeveloper is a great tool for a very small company like MacMation. It allows you to get helpful bug reports, without to have to maintain an army of beta testers. The quality of the bug reports is excellent. They cover a much larger base than what could be possible by keeping this process internally. It goes from crashing bugs to more subtle problem, such as UI flaws. It already helped to increase the quality of the beta tested application by several levels.
I've been using MacDeveloper for only a couple of days now, but I'm just loving it! You get to know interesting software projects and get the chance to state your opinion on missing features or annoying bugs at the same time. More projects should participate here!
MacDeveloper is exactly what individual developers like me where waiting for. I already fixed several bugs pointed out by the beta pool. Thanks for this most useful service.
Being able to get feedback from a set of anonymous testers running on a range of different OSes and architectures is invaluable. But the real gem that MacDeveloper has brought to the table is the setting of expections. As a developer I'm able to submit a product to real field use without the responsibility of paying customers. The testers are expecting 'betaware' and are probably actually a little pleased when problems occur - they've found a bug!! I don't have to make my first 100 customers my de facto beta tester! Thanks MacDeveloper!
This is totally amazing. I got so much free software for clicking here and there to submit problem reports. Congrats for the great service! You've made it easy to get free software and to test a brainchild app out. Rating: *****
Wow, MacDeveloper is fantastic! Just as prMac revolutionized the way that we communicate with the press, MacDeveloper has revolutionized the way we communicate with our testers! That's two winners in a row. We've had more useful feedback on our applications in the last two days than ever before. Going forward, MacDeveloper will definitely be an integral part of our application development process, and we'll be posting betas for testing much earlier in the cycle than we would have before.
