Where to find early users for apps in beta?

I'm looking for the best places to offer early access to an app currently in development. My friends and family are great but sometime they're too nice and I can't rely on their feedback. I'd like to open it up to everyone else to use and get their thoughts. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Quora is a great platform for finding interested users (especially if your product solves a problem which a lot of people face).

    You should use betalist, they are doing exactly that and you can get results, you can either get listed for free within a month I think, or pay for immediate listing and you can expect beta testers and lots of visits to your new product to get some sort of early validation.

    • To increase traffic and visibility to your website, that can make a huge difference, list your startup at Also feature your startup in the betapage newsletter that has 20000+ subscribers, to gain a huge advantage over others. So I recommend it to anyone who wants to draw attention to their website.

    This takes some effort, but you can ask potential users a few questions on Twitter. Engage with people, and ask follow-up questions too. You'll not only find early users for your beta app, but you'll get feedback on what to build and what you should build next. If you're curious how I did it, you can check out What I Learned About Your SXSW Experience.

      Product Hunt 4.0 is the best that has happened to Product Hunt yet. Easily one of my most favorite websites these days, and I see myself coming back daily to maintain my streak. I am at a 20 day streak now and I hope to see badges evolve with daily streaks - some sort of perks for people coming more often?

      This update is super useful for people deciding whether or not to use a product. Sometime you want to do a deep dive into a product before deciding whether or not to use it.

      The "😻 reviews" feature, as well as the "🔗 Around the Web" section makes this deep dive super easy.
