Aviary Beta Testing Now Available for iOS

We are pleased to announce that we’re opening up beta testing for Photo Editor by Aviary on iOS! 

For over a year now, we’ve been taking advantage of Android beta testing through Google+ and it’s proven to be an invaluable resource. With the help of over 3,000 beta testers, we’ve been able to identify and squash countless bugs as well as improve and iterate on new features before they’re released. Starting today, we can now do the same on iOS.

Beta feedback is critical to Aviary’s development process. Not only does it help us polish up features before we launch, but sometimes it inspires us to build something completely new. Take our Blur tool, for example: Last June, our imaging team wanted to take our Blemish tool to the next level by changing the technology so that it made flaws disappear, instead of just camouflaging them. What they came up with was amazing, and our beta testers loved it. But we also learned that they missed the blurring functionality that the tool previously offered. So, instead of just launching the new Blemish, we added a second, brand new tool named Blur, giving users the best of both worlds. Everyone’s happy! We’ve learned dozens of lessons like this one thanks to our Android beta group and we’re excited to extend the beta program to iOS as well.

Here’s how the program works:

  • Start by requesting to become a tester here (be sure to enter the same email address you use for your App Store ID). We’ll get you setup in our system shortly after receiving your info.
  • You’ll be notified via email when a new beta is available. At that time you’ll also receive some instructions for getting the beta installed to your device and how to submit us feedback.
  • That’s it!

So what are you waiting for? Sign up for our iOS beta group today. As a beta tester, your voice will be heard while we’re still in the development process—this will help shape and influence the way our new features evolve.
