Seeking iPhone App Beta Testers (Apply Within)

Posted by Chris Carpita, Dec 13, 2012.

Over the next 6 months, Snooth is going to be putting a lot more of it's weight into improving our iPhone app:  we'll be adding big enhancements like streamlined notes sharing, easy food & wine recommendations, better list functionality, and more.  In order to ensure that we're releasing a high quality product, we want to get it field tested by more individuals who use the app (or would use it) on a daily or weekly basis.  

Perks: Free content & features that would be paid for everyone else, and you get to use new features weeks or months before they launch.

Requirements:  you must have an iphone* and be a proven active member of Snooth.   We only have a very limited number of slots (20) for this first round, so we'll be showing preference to Snoothers who are more active on the site.  Once we make our selections, we'll send invites to your account e-mail on Test Flight, our beta distribution platform.  It will then be 1-2 weeks before your device is activated with the new beta versions.

*Right now we're focusing on iPhone/iPad platform, but we know Android is important too (I personally have an Android phone).  We are really trying to nail the iPhone platform with a proven 5-star app before we replicate the features onto an equally excellent Android app.   In the meantime, check out Wine Secretary, a really nice application which uses the Snooth API.


Do you have the right stuff?  Let us know!

I'll play as long as it gives access to the forums which the current iPhone App does not.

Ipad mini?

Reply by Chris Carpita, Dec 18, 2012.

@Shsim - iPad apps will work on the mini as well, as it has the same layout and aspect ratio.  We are looking to have an iPad app in the testing phase by May 2013

Count me in.

Thanks guys!

To give a sense of our priorities for January - March:

1. Much better experience for adding wine notes

2. Better navigation in general

3. Weekly/monthly updated "best buy" lists for wines

4. Ability to view + manage your custom wine lists  - see:

Right now the forum isn't at the top of the list, though we plan to add it at a future date.  If you're interested in having early access to the features listed above, please let us know.

Id like to get my paid pro version working.  In app purchase failed today although I was charged in iTunes. email in app bounced.  support contact within iTunes app doesn't work.  left a message via the contact us on the web site under bugs.

App crashed when I was trying to retake a picture of a label and locked up.  Since then it doesn't recognize that I paid the $4.99.  Regards.

I would be willing to try it if you still need folks.

@ABSCAM - try downloading the free iphone app version and signing in with your Snooth account.  You should have all the paid features.

Reply by Chris Carpita, Jan 4, 2013.

Thanks to those who showed interest!  I just sent out some invites on Test Flight - please accept the invite when you get a chance so that I can make sure that your iphone is on our approved devices list.

I'd be interested in helping out too -- have replied to the email. I've been somewhat quiet on the forum recently, but plan to stop by more regularly in 2013...
