If/when we have a Test Build available, you certainly can - and we really appreciate the help! We release new versions of the app every few months, and would love to have more iPhone and iPad users to beta-test each version before we submit it to the App Store.
Here's how you can help...
Check out this club, and join to get the latest news about upcoming releases & other issues. You can also use the forums in that group to post about issues you find, or new features you'd like to see.
In order to install our Test Builds on your device(s), we have to add your unique device IDs (UDIDs) to a special file that is included with the app itself. (More on that below...) Here's how you discover your UDID for a given iPhone or iPad:
Alternative method: If you don't want to connect your device to iTunes as described, there is another way: Go to the App Store on your device, and then find & install a free app called "ShareAbout": It's a very simple app that will let you send your device ID via email.
However you get your UDID, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org & we will ensure our very next Test Build will work on your device! Happily, you only ever have to do this step once... at least till you get a new phone. :)
(Please send the UDID from whatever email address you would prefer us to reply to, when relating news about new versions, etc.)
This is actually pretty easy! Whenever it's ready, we will send you a link where you can download it onto your computer. And then...
That's it! You're ready to play!
We recommend you open the app, sign in, totally close the app, and open it again. (Sounds strange, but that's the best approximation of installing a new version straight from the App Store.) Now just go ahead and use the app as you normally would: Check out the new features and let us know what you think, either by email or in the Forum!
If you find bugs/issues during the beta phase, we'll get them fixed before the release! Everybody wins... thanks to you! :)
P.S. If it should happen that the beta build crashes, we'd love to get the crash report from you. Please see this article for more details!
