Beta test before release

TestFlight Beta Testing

Customers who want to use an app before Apple's review can join Apple's TestFlight beta testing program. For example, pdf-notes for iPad 3.6.20 is waiting its review so that customers should wait the review finished but testers can use it right now.

Beta test period is 60 days since a test version is registered. Testers can test it during 60 days, or cancel it and make the app restore to the former AppStore version, or cancel it and update the app to the newly released AppStore version. During a test, data files used at the former AppStore version may be changed and the newer AppStore version may be needed for the compatibility in this case.

A test version is running under TestFlight environment unlikely a normal version is running under AppStore environment so that two versions licenses are different from each other. A tester can purchase a test license and it's a virtual transaction only not the real one so that the test license can not be used for an AppStore version. Likewise, a tester has a valid AppStore license but needs to purchase a test license for a test version.

If you want to join, please send your Apple ID mail address. Received mail addresses will be listed on Apple's database and registered selectively. When registered as a tester, Apple will send you an invitation mail.

Since 3rd December 2015, the following tests are available for 60 days.
  • pdf-notes for iPad 3.6.20 paid version
  • pdf-notes for iPad 3.6.20 free version

Thank you~ ^^
