How to beta test your Windows Phone app
This article links to useful articles about beta testing apps on the Windows Phone platform.
Windows Phone allows you to beta test your app by distributing a customer-ready release build to a limited number of users for a limited time (before the app is submitted to DevCenter for approval). The app undergoes a small test by DevCenter and is then distributed to a list of users identified by their LiveIDs.
Beta testing is essential for a first impression of the quality of a new app. Nevertheless, regression tests with app updates can help a lot.
