Task Rocket 3.0 development milestone: Beta testers wanted
Update: Task Rocket 3 is now available, and so there is no need for any more beta testing.
I’m happy to report that I’ve now completed work on the Task Rocket 3.0 desktop interface. Aside from the new look and feel, there are some new features, bug fixes, performance improvements and some old less popular (legacy) features removed.
Presentation on mobile devices is now in progress and is expected to take a couple of weeks, time permitting. During that time I expect to get feedback from the testers and take care of any issues that are reported. If I was a betting man (which I’m not) I’d say Task Rocket 3.0 will be released some time in March, perhaps mid way if things go well and there are no unexpected roadblocks. Fingers crossed.
With this in mind, I’m now looking for a handful of beta testers. If you’re interested just leave a comment below or send me a message.
What is expected of a beta tester?
The idea of beta testing is to use the product with enough frequency that you could potentially stumble upon any problems, and then report them back to me on slack.
What do beta testers get in return?
As a beta tester you’ll get a copy of Task Rocket for free, if you don’t already have one. If you already do own a copy of Task Rocket, I can either update your license to include all three add-ons for free, or enable an additional domain on your license. I’ll leave it up to you which you prefer.
You’ll also get the bragging rights for being the first people in the world to have access to Task Rocket 3.0. It’s not much, but it’s something.
