Call for Beta Testers... Crowded Fiction (aka Vidya Books) Hits beta! Yeh, and Phew!!!
(note: I'm dyslexic and I wasn't able to get anyone to proof read this prior to sending out - sorry!)
Crowded Fiction (aka Vidya Books) hits beta!
I will follow up with a more detailed update soon - but, we've hit beta, yeh! (and phew!) and I wanted to get a shout out for some beta testers. We are behind schedule (boo) but the book is going super well (yeh!). And, we've added a few surprises that I walk talk about soon (ooh!). Every character in the book (bar Jackson) is a based on a backer! (this was fun, and a little challenging at times!!!)
We are looking for a few people to help test the beta. Specifically we need:
- Honest feedback on the book quality and flow
- Feedback on reading speed works best for you.
- Testing and feedback on the social features
- Catch Proof issues (spellings, style issues)
We are limited in the number of devices we can use (see below) so we will most likely add 5-6 for each beta revision.
What you need:
1) MUST - iPad running iOS6 (iPad 2 or later)
2) Ideally - Be a Backstage level or higher backer
3) Ideally - Have a Facebook account and be willing to 'friend' other beta testers.
How it works:
We use a service call TestFlight to help us manage testers. Once we send the invite, you register yourself AND your device with TestFlight. Then TestFlight notifies you when there is a new build which you download on your machine.
Apple only allows us to register 100 devices to cover development, testing, beta testing and preview builds.
How to Apply:
email firstname.lastname@example.org with 'Beta Tester Request' and the following information:
- Device: (you need iPad2 or later running iOS6)
- Has you device been registered with us before: (just say NO if this makes no sense)
- Are you a Backstage level backer:
- Do you have access to kids to get their input too? What age:
- Do you have time to read the whole book and give some meaningful feedback:
