Instagram today follows in the steps of Facebook and Twitter in announcing a public beta program allowing users to test updates and changes to their app.
We haven’t yet seen any mention of the new features on offer in the beta app, and Instagram doesn’t seem to have set up a forum for user feedback, discussion and publication of change logs. Users are instead asked to use the app’s “Report a Problem” feature to submit feedback.
This is an area that companies often end up “growing into” as they recognise the need for a better dialogue with their testers – Twitter’s Mobile Feedback group or Facebook’s own Android Beta Group (along with countless other developers using Google+ Communities) are good examples of beta testing communities.
Android Instagrammers, want to try the app before it's released and give us feedback to improve? Learn more here: http://t.co/bCYmuc6qC5
