Where to find beta testers? - littleblue50 - Jul 15, 2011 10:34 AM
I'm coming to the end of developing my first ever iOS app and am wondering where is a good place to find good beta testers?

I'm sure touch arcade has tons of rabid fans that will beta test for you. =)

Yeah, that's always the tricky part. Mostly they just want free games, so they can tell their friends they played a game before it came out.
We give out a few dozen copies to beta testers, and then we write down the names of the people who actually wrote something insightful, then use them on the next games. We did have a few pretty thoughtful testers.

As others have said, it shouldn't be find to hard people who want to beta test. The hard part is finding people who actually will beta test.
There's no way of knowing whether someone will give useful feedback or any feedback at all, but I found that having people complete a form will give you a general idea of how much they value their input and will pass it on to you. Good luck.
