The Family Nexus App
You may have heard that we are developing a mobile app to bring family history to your fingertips and help you make amazing new discoveries about your family! You can support the effort to develop The Family Nexus app, and it won’t cost a dime! We have started with a native mobile app for iPhone. The app will be ready for our beta testers very soon!
In software development, as features are developed it goes through a rigorous internal testing process. We do this to ensure it works as expected, and (hopefully) to catch any defects or bugs. We call the internal testing an “alpha test.” Once this step is complete, the software or app is released to a larger group of users to test in “real world” conditions. By the beta test phase, the app will be pretty close to the official “release version.” The beta test step is crucial, however, for getting additional feedback and making sure the app functions correctly in a wider array of situations.
