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!
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!
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 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.
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.
We thought Layers was pretty much ready for release when we opened a MacDeveloper Project. Thanks to its heterogeneus community of testers we found a couple of insidious bugs. MacDeveloper is a great tool for indies. The possibility to expand the beta cycle and reach out to more people is wonderful. But the killer point for us is the relation with the testers, the community. We've received very useful feature requests, good and kind feedback, and a fair overview of market reception. We have now a clearer idea of what to expect when hitting the real world. A must in any developer toolbox.
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!
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.
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 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.
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.
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!
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.
