It’s an exciting time at OpenSignal, and we’ve got lots of things we’re working on to make the OpenSignal family of apps even better. However, we won’t be able to do it without your help!
Do you like what we do? Become a beta-tester! You’ll get exciting new versions as soon as they come out, and you’ll have a chance to give us invaluable feedback early on in the development process.
Here are the apps that we have going now, and how to join their beta-testing programmes:
For all of our Android apps, join the relevant Google+ community and you will be able to access the beta version through there.
OpenSignal – join the OpenSignal Beta Google+ community
WeatherSignal – join the WeatherSignal Beta Google+ community
CrisisSignal – join the CrisisSignal Beta Google+ community
WifiMapper – join the WifiMapper Beta Google+ community
Apps that we have for iOS are: OpenSignal, WeatherSignal (only collects data with iPhone 6 or 6+, as these are the first models to have a barometer), and the newest addition to the family, WifiMapper (our global map of recommended WiFi hotspots – see more at wifimapper.com).
The beta-programmes for our iOS apps involve a different process. Here are the instructions on how to join:
- Enter in you iTunes email address and the apps you want to test into the form below.
- Install the TestFlight app on your phone – this is the beta-version management system.
- When you receive the invitation to join an app’s beta-testing programme, open the link with either the default Apple mail client or with Safari (some users have had problems if opening the link by other means).
- Test away – and don’t forget to tell us about any bugs you encounter or any features that you would like to see in the next version!
Please also note that on iOS, beta versions are only active for a month, so you may not get an invitation to test a beta when you join. If you would like to know when the next beta version will be released, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com.
Thank you very much for your participation!
