    I think this forum could use a beta tester sub-forum. As a developer it's tough getting enough devices to recreate a bug and try to find out what exactly may be going wrong with an App.

    Basically, a developer posts their bug or new apk and users can download to test it. This provides a directly line of information to the developer and users get a better application out of it.

    OP
    Subject: App name (bug or new apk)
    Description: How to recreate it (First seen on X device)

    User Response
    Device and OS used to test
    Success or failure on recreating bug.

    What do you guys think? I feel like beta tester/bug threads would get lost easily.

    Actually a great idea - I am a penultimate Beta tester, so I would love to be able to try out apps for devs and report back....

    I've seen it. I see everything posted in here. :) I'm sorry sometimes my replies are not speedy but I promise you that's almost always for a reason.

    Almost. :p

    In this case we've talked bout it and decided to hold off till this weekend or Monday to either do it or decide to incorporate this with other ideas we have going on.

    Will let you know.
    Danke!

    Ok, I've made a "Alpha & Beta Testing" subforum in the developers area as well as a subforum link to it in the Applications area.

    Check out the guidelines in there.

    Hope this helps! Let me know if you have trouble with it or would like something changed.

    Thanks for the reminder Trident.
