Seeking Beta Testers
for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch App

Please help us create an Insanely Great App!

Solving the Software Problem is working on our first product: Warp Life™.

It is our own take on Conway's Game of Life, the first of a class of computer programs known as Cellular Automata. We didn't invent the game - it was created by computer scientist John Conway in the early 1970s. But we have our own special take on it.

When Warp Life is complete, it will be available for $4.99 from the Apple iPhone App Store.

You could help us do a better job if you would try out preliminary test versions of Warp Life.

In return for your kindness, you will receive credit in Warp Life itself, on Warp Life's website, and of course you will receive a free complimentary copy of the final product after it hits the App Store.

There are two phases to our testing.

Now complete is the Alpha Test phase in which we believe all the serious bugs have been identified and fixed.

Now in Beta Test, the product is stable but, because software engineers are the very worst testers of our own products, we need to know whether our product makes sense to regular Mobile Device users, whether it is enjoyable as well as easy to use. If it's not, tell us why and we'll find some way to address your concerns.

If you'd like to help out, please send the following information to betatest@warplife.com

  1. Your name
  2. your email address
  3. Your telephone number is optional, but could be very helpful
  4. Do you wish to participate in Beta Test only, or Alpha Test as well?

Shake to Randomize

Provide the following items for each device that you wish to test with.

Note that Apple's Ad Hoc Distribution requires us to submit the UDID for each individual device in the test. If you want to test with, say, an iPhone and an iPad, we will need this information for each of them:

Model Name, such as "iPhone 4".

Flash Memory Size, such as "32 GB".

Please tell us the software version and model number for each device:

  1. Launch the Settings App on your device
  2. Tap the General item
  3. Tap the About item
  4. The Version number and Model number will be included in the About info

For example, I have an iPod Touch, 64 GB, Version 4.0 (8A293), Model MC011LL.

Very Important! Please give us the UDID for each device you wish to test with:

  1. Connect your device to your computer with your USB cable.
  2. Launch iTunes
  3. Click on the name of your device in the Devices section on the left
  4. Click just once on the Serial Number on the right so that the UDID is displayed.
  5. Select Edit->Copy to copy the UDID to the Clipboard.
  6. Paste your UDID into the email that you are sending to us.

For example, my UDID is:



Don't just send us a screenshot of your UDID!

Some of our Alpha Testers did just that, but the UDID is a forty-digit hexadecimal number, and must be entered in Warp Life 's iPhone Provisioning Portal at Apple's Developer website.

If you send us a screenshot of your UDID rather than following the above instructions to send of the test of your UDID, we will be forced to meticulously copy all forty digits or your UDID by hand into the provisioning portal.

If we screw up even one single digit of your UDID, iTunes will refuse to install your Alpha build for you!

Beta Testing just commenced with the distribution of version 1.0b1 to our testers. Warp Life will be submitted to Apple for App Store approval after Beta Testing has continued for at least two weeks with no more bugs of any sort being discovered.

When each new build is ready, we will send you a link to a page where you can download it at your convenience. That page also has installation instructions.

Thank You!
