From the Forums: Beta testing your Windows Phone apps

WP Central

Did you know that in our Forums we have an area dedicated to Developer Beta testing? If you're holding that new Windows Phone and you're thinking, How can I help this operating system grow? Well how about beta testing some apps? Our Developers need your help to get their app right and to the Marketplace.

GPS Calculator PRO is one of the apps currently under beta testing in our forums. Developer and forum member kitya is asking for your help to test his app. From the app description:

"This app can be used to accurately calculate distances, get altitude information from digital elevation models, calculate areas, project locations and convert coordinates between several different formats, including UTM"

Insync is a Google Docs sync app and currently in beta testing here at WPCentral. If you use Google Docs this app has an extensive list of features. It is being developed by insynchq he describes his app and list all its features in his thread.

Chrync (beta) is used to sync Chrome to your Windows Phone. Developer dmehers is trying to get beta testers signed up now for the next version he will be testing. This is what he says about the current app.

"The current version of this app syncs down your Chrome Bookmarks, recently viewed URLs, and open browser sessions."

Developer and forum member Ronny Gydar posted his app "People search / Finn folk" in our forums and quickly filled up the 100 testers he needed. So if you're interested in beta testing some apps, be sure and keep an eye on the Beta test forums and join as soon as you can (or you might miss your chance).

Developers: this area is for you. We want to help you get those apps to market a soon as possible. If you are in need of volunteers, post up those trials as we have an army of beta testers ready to help out.

Remember, the forums are more fun when you register, so sign up today.
