Out of Beta

Posted by Philip James, Feb 11, 2008.

Mark mentioned this last week in passing, but yes, its official. Snooth is out of beta. We launched our service on June 4th 2007, 8 months ago now. And while we have a long way to go, its nice to see how far we've come.

For those brave and resilient enough to have been with us from the beginning you'll have seen the changes. When we launched we were decidedly beeeeta! So much so that 3 of the 5 main header tabs didn't function. Day one you had the choice of home or search, soon after that a rudimentary list or your reviews came along (reviews) and it was a few months before friends and recommendations were in place. I think we launched with just 3 merchant partners live as well.

So whats next? Just because the beta moniker, which signals development, is gone, it doesnt mean we're about to shift down a gear. The big things we have in the pipeline include lots more merchants, lots more data cleanup, more focus on community, making it easier to find and connect with people who share your tastes. Mark talked about the merchant select that we launched last week, we'll be working on that, making ir more relevant to you, your country, your hometown, personalized...

For us, enduring beta stages signal an excuse. It was right for us while we were still fledgling, but warts and all, we're ready to move to our next stage. Please continue to send us your feedback, bugs and wishlists and we'll keep working to make Snooth into the best product it can be.
