What Members are Saying About MacDeveloper
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.
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!
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.
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.
Looks really nice. The initial sign on process was very smooth. Bring on the feedback!
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
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!
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!
MacDeveloper is the fastest way to test your software. Lots of users are waiting to test your app, and the feedback you can receive is invaluable.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
