What’s a beta?

Beta software lets you try some software for free and helps developers find problems. In addition, user feedback helps developers steer the direction of their products.

To be clear, some of the betas here are public while others require that you have a current license.

How to be a valuable beta tester

Instabug gives great advice on providing the best feedback and maximizing your beta testing time.

You should know the product and what bugs have already been reported, but the article also touches on submitting a quality bug report and suggesting usability changes. If you’re a private beta tester, you should always keep your beta testing confidential.
