    ...but what is a Beta Tester??!

    A Beta Tester, for our purposes, is someone who uses the "beta" version of our app — an early access version which will still be in development before it is released to the general public.

    Oh. What does a Beta Tester do?

    The main responsibility is really simple — just use the app! The added responsibility is being vigilant about bugs or anything that seems "off" to you and letting us know when they occur so we can fix it! Beta versions will sometimes introduce new features that we are going to add to the app: your feedback and thoughts about these features will be very important to us, as we will keep tweaking them before we launch the app to the general public.

    Okay. What do I get from being a Beta Tester?

    You mean besides our heartfelt gratitude? You will get to play around with new features before anybody else sees them! Your continued correspondence can also help us come up with new features. Going forward, we might also add special reactions or badges for your profile. (No promises, promises!) We definitely want this to be a rewarding experience for everyone involved so we are open to suggestions!

    Cooooool! What do I need to be a Beta Tester?
