BoxOnline invites you to take part in its beta testing program.
What is a beta version?
A product’s beta is an officially released version of a product which includes most of the product’s functionality. The beta version is intended for external testing of the product in order to identify configurations that cause problems, as well as collect requirements and suggestions from users.
The beta phase of software design exposes a new product, which has just emerged from in-house (alpha) testing, to a large number of real people, real hardware, and real usage.
Beta testing is not a method of getting free software long-term, because the software expires shortly after the testing period. The benefits of testing include:
- Getting a look at the new features before anyone else.
- The excitement of being the first to discover unsuspected bugs hiding in the application.
- Improving software applications as a result of detecting those bugs.
- Possibly, affecting our future direction of development through your suggestions.
What Beta Testing isn’t:
This is NOT an evaluation, but a beta test. We pretty much guarantee that you will receive buggy software. These bugs may crash your computer, your iPhone (or worse). We will do our best to fix all bugs that are reported to us, but we can do little about those that are not reported. The software you receive will not be of release quality, and should not be evaluated on those terms. The software is NOT to be distributed; if you know another person (or group of people) interested in participating in our beta tests, please point them to this page so that they can submit their own application. Please complete the application below, but ONLY with a solid understanding of the above.
If you would like to apply to be a beta tester of BoxOnline products, please complete our Beta Tester Application Form below and we will review your application for the next available beta test cycle.
For iPhone Beta Testing, you will need your UDID (your unique iPhone Identifier number). You can find it by launching iTunes and then clicking the Serial Number text near the top center of the screen.
Then use the EDIT / COPY menu item to grab the long 40 character string of numbers and paste it into the Identifier field in the form below on this page.
