The iOS app is now available in the Closed Alpha Program! Today, we rolled out a test invite for our iOS users from the firebase development platform! Only members using iOS devices will be able to accept the invite.
A few weeks ago, we invited some of our most responsive Founding members who completed a survey invite link, to our closed Alpha Program.
Android users who filled the survey were able to download the app and test it, while our iOS users had to wait!
The process of including iOS users in our Closed Alpha Program has been quite a learning process for us. We identified multiple complexities involving distributing the Alpha release of our app for iOS devices, including prerequisites such as the iPhone’s UDID. We asked our members to submit their UDID in the invite survey but only 27% of the responses were correct.
Admittedly, the instructions we gave members for getting the UDID were a bit cumbersome.
The good news is that we have simplified the process! Today, we rolled out a test invite for our iOS users from the firebase development platform! Only members using iOS devices will be able to accept the invite. Doing so from your device will automatically identify your UDID and register it on the development platform.
After this step, another download link will be sent to everyone who registered their device.
To the Android users, who received the email from firebase!
Please ignore the email! We are also closing the test invites for Android devices, and will no longer be accepting additional members into the program.
Next step on the Closed Alpha Program
In the first week of May, we’ll begin collecting feedback from those of you testing the app. Till then keep testing!
If you were not part of our Closed Alpha Program, you can still check out our app in the video here.
