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.
- 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.
- 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.
