For Immediate Release

Contact: Al Meadows -, Phone: (405) 943-4533 Unites Software Developers and Beta Testers

Fineware Systems announces the launch of, a web site and
newsletter that bring together companies looking for beta testers for their
software, and individuals interested in participating in beta testing

Beta testing is a crucial phase of the software development cycle that
allows a pre-release version of a new program to be tested under real-life
conditions by potential users. Until today, it has been a challenge for
software developers to find a team of qualified testers with the proper mix
of computer skills, hardware, and operating systems to ensure that their new
programs have been tested in a wide variety of environments.

For a $300 listing fee, helps companies locate qualified beta
testing volunteers. iTestApps will include a description of the company's
beta testing needs in six issues of the twice-monthly iTestApps newsletter
which is sent to end-users seeking beta testing opportunities. In addition,
the company receives four insertions of its New Product Announcement in the
newsletter, once the beta testing has been completed, and the new software

iTestApps gives beta testers a chance to look at new software, with
leading-edge programming interfaces and techniques, months before it will be
available to the general public. The iTestApps newsletter is free for
anybody who would like to consider becoming a beta tester. Computer science
students will gain valuable insights into the software development process.
All beta testers will have the satisfaction of working with the software
development team to mold a commercial software package to meet real-world
needs. Beta testers are invariably rewarded with free copies of the final
programs when they are released.

The biggest and most common beta testing mistake is the release of new
programs that have been inadequately tested. The damage to the company's
reputation and market share dwarf the cost of using iTestApps to assemble a
team of qualified beta testers.

The iTestApps newsletter listing costs $300 for commercial software
developers, less for shareware and freeware developers, and multi-use
discounts are available. For more information, including online FAQ's for
both companies looking for testers and individuals who want to become
testers, visit, or contact iTestApps' parent
company, Fineware Systems, PO Box 75776, Oklahoma City, OK 73147 USA.
