I have an android app that I want to beta-test.
I’ve posted in the Alpha & Beta Testing forum, but looking at other posts, there’s not a lot of feedback. Or does it mostly come by PM?
Meantime, I’ve looked at Android testing sites. Overview… it seems to be an immature niche, a search doesn’t throw up any clear market leaders.
Here’s a list, with some comments. (Comments are tentative – I’ve looked at these sites, but not used them.) Most are intermediaries – farming out reviews, rather than doing them in-house. Any pointers would be appreciated. Especially, any warnings about sites with lots of pirates, or sham reviewers.
