You mean the ßeta one now in user testing? Join the testers and probably be the first to know. :)

How can we be a beta tester?

That should be fun to test here in Quebec Canada where the temperature are extreme.

Maybe PM Stu the WeatherCat Developer? He may not need any more testers at the moment, however.

Do understand that ererz can appear and you will be responsible for reporting that as well as testing anything he might ask. ßeta testing is not simply installing and letting an app run. It requires commitment to testing as many functions the app may have to help the developer find and fix problems. You should also be ready and capable of reporting information from logs in Console.

You should also be prepared for any crashes that the app may cause and make multiple backups of your all data, not just the WC data. That might even include re-installing your Operating System. It would probably be best to have WC running on a dedicated machine and operating 24/7.
