What Members are Saying About MacDeveloper
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!
Looks really nice. The initial sign on process was very smooth. Bring on the feedback!
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.
I have been working in the windows environment for the last 11 years but since I switched to the Mac in 2003 I have learned that Macdeveloper has given me the chance to test out some of my favorite beta applications and even get apps that would normally cost me 40$, 50$, or even 100$ for free. I also thank the original creator of this nicely maintained website for maintaining this site with the newest application.
I found several great applications on here. I can get them for free, the devs get free help, this is AWESOME! There should be more MacDeveloper
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 love MacDeveloper.net! It's simple and useful.
Proud to be a tester to help making better OS X software.
shinywhitebox used MacDeveoper for the beta phase of iShowU Studio, starting late December 2013 through to end of March 2014. Using MacDeveloper, shinywhitebox was able to focus its alpha and beta testing far more than previously. MacDeveloper put us in touch with knowledgeable users which enabled us to spend less time "coaching" people through problems and more time finding and fixing issues. Ray was communicative and helpful throughout the beta cycle; even implanting new features just days after we requested them. Highly recommended.
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: *****
Brilliant way of trying new apps out and helping out the developer at the same time. I like the way that you can earn the purchase of the apps. Thank you very much for this amazing site. It helps both the user and developer in so many ways.
MacDeveloper has brought a ton of great feedback and request that I could have never got by manually finding beta testers. All the users are friendly and are offering constructive things to help my application. This has quickly become a vital resource for my developing process. The interface is easy and there are some innovative features.
MacDeveloper has the potential to become another must-have service for developers. With its great features, clean and easy to use UI, finding beta testers has never been easier. The platform is an excellent way to improve communications, as well as tighten the relationship between developers and their customers. I wish I already had this for my first release! Highly recommended!
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!
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.
