There have been some questions about the beta testing invites, so I wanted to expand on the process I’m taking during this testing period before we get to the live launch:
- There are a lot of people signed up for beta testing.
- Widefido is just me and I did not want to get overwhelmed with a bunch of feedback all at once.
- For this reason, I decided it would be best to do testing with a phased rollout.
- This means that you’ll get your invite email (with the download link for the app) in the order that you signed up.
- I’m adding new beta testers to the pool at the beginning of every week. If you have not received your invite yet, you will be getting it in the next couple of weeks.
- After everybody who has signed up has had the chance to test the software for a bit, I will be freezing the build and moving forward with a public launch.
Hope this helps clear things up. If you have any questions in the meantime, feel free to get in touch.
Sorry about the radio silence for the past few weeks. I’ve been wrapped up in a couple of great things:
- I attended the MicroConf conference in Las Vegas, met a bunch of really awesome entrepreneurs, and was able to learn a lot and teach a lot.
- I got absorbed into building a new side project that I’ll talk more about later this week.
- I went on vacation to Italy.
- I wrapped up a lot of small issues with TodoPaper 2 to get ready for the first round of beta testing.
So, anyway, I’m excited to announce the first round of beta invites went out this morning to quite a few of you on the mailing list. I’m planning on doing these in batches over the next few weeks to let everybody get a chance to try it out. For now, if you haven’t received an invite to test, keep an eye out over the next few weeks for an email from me.
For those of you who haven’t already, you should sign up to be a tester. The signup form will be online for the next few days, after which beta invites will be closed.
Thanks for all of the encouragement! I look forward to hearing your feedback about version 2 soon!
