Finishing creation of a networking and beta-testing resource, MacScripter has launched MacDeveloper, a platform allowing companies and individuals to test applications in a large beta pool. By connecting software developers with a community of testers, MacDeveloper is intended to provide fast feedback to companies about their applications, and in turn hopefully improve the quality of the software. People who take part in testing will be rewarded with points that can be used for either discounts or free software.
Developers using the service can search for beta testers, and upload any desired amount of binaries to project channels. The first project channel is free, but subsequent ones are being priced at $17 each.
