What Members are Saying About MacDeveloper
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.
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 has become a necessary step in our products life cycle. The 'Beta pool' option is just amazing.
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.
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
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!
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!
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!
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.
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: *****
I love MacDeveloper.net! It's simple and useful.
The best way to get a free key is really to use the application, because then you either love the workflow or find something how it could be easier. I've just made a few suggestions and got a free licence. As a power user I am very happy with that. Thank you MacDeveloper!
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.
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.
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!
