What Members are Saying About 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: *****
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.
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.
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.
Looks really nice. The initial sign on process was very smooth. Bring on the feedback!
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.
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!
Amazing beta testing service on the Mac! We tested our Balance game on MacDeveloper and got great results. Received many interesting feature requests and fixed many small issues pointed out by the beta testers.
MacDeveloper has become a necessary step in our products life cycle. The 'Beta pool' option is just amazing.
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.
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!
Within an hour of posting my application on this site, I had more users and more feedback than I got in weeks pushing my application on my friends. I am blown away by the amount of feedback pouring in and will definitely be using MacDeveloper.net for any future projects!
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 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 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.
