We're looking for volunteers to help us test forthcoming app updates before they're publicly available
Would you like to help us make our app better?
We're continously releasing updates to the Audubon Bird Guide app, adding new features and fixing bugs based on user feedback. To help us test these forthcoming updates before they become available to the general public, we are seeking volunteers to join our beta testers group.
Beta testers will be granted sneak-peak early access to our latest releases, and will be asked to provide feedback on new functionality to help us further refine our app. The beta versions may contain new features not yet available in the main release. Since these features may be experimental, we ask that you don’t publicize or share the features you’re testing until they’re publicly launched.
The beta version of our app may also be less stable or have a few minor problems. If you run into bugs, we ask that you let us know so we can fix them. Beta testers can always switch back to the public, stable release at any time.
To join the beta program, follow the instructions below for your platform:
- iOS instructions using TestFlight (you must open this link on your iOS device)
- Android instructions using the Google Play Store
Note: we don't always have a beta version available for testing. But once you join the group, you'll automatically receive any future beta releases. On iOS, TestFlight will send you a notification when a new beta release is available. On Android, beta versions will appear along with your other app updates in the Google Play Store automatically.
How to give feedback
If you run into any issues using the beta, please let us know. This will ensure that we fix the problem before releasing the update to the public. You can also use the feedback tool to share your impressions or ask a question.
To submit feedback on iOS
- Open the TestFlight app, and tap the Audubon Bird Guide entry
- Tap "Send Beta Feedback" to send an email directly to Audubon. If you have any screenshots that illustrate your issue, please include them.
To submit feedback on Android
- Open the Google Play Store app
- Choose "My apps & games" from the main menu, then select the "Installed" tab
- Tap the Audubon Bird Guide in the list, then find the "Private feedback to the develoepr" box.
If you have any questions about the beta test program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
