Hello NatureMaprs!

Testing for our 4.4.0 application update for both Android and IOS phones has begun and we are looking for anyone who would like to participate in testing.

If you are interested please send an email to support@naturemapr.org with your name, device, make and model e.g. iPhone 15 Pro etc and UDID number (Apple users only). Depending on the number of testers we may use an online forum for feedback but in the meantime please send any bugs you find or any recommended features to this email.

Once you have supplied the above details we will register you to the Microsoft App Center where you will receive automatic emails informing you of updates and will send out any new versions that we release into the Test.

There are a few steps you must complete before you can install the test application:

IOS Users

Acquiring your device's UDID number:

  1. On your Apple device open this link and download the configuration file (can be deleted once noting your UDID number).
  2. Open 'Settings'

  4. 'VPN and device management'
  5. 'install' (where you will be able to view your UDID number)
  6. Enter your password

  8. Note your UDID number.
  9. Open 'Settings'

  8. Toggle 'on'
  9. See this link for visual instructions
  10. Once testing has finished we recommend turning off developer mode.

I'd also like to thank users who have supported and continue to grow NatureMapr through your passion for the environment, without you NatureMapr would cease to exist!

Great work @Choyster - we need all the testers we can get to ensure that the app is robust across the largest and widest number of different devices, so really encourage everyone to please put their hand up!

I have a question that I should probably know the answer to but I don't. Is the app being tested running against a test database or the production database? Thanks for all your work Aaron and team.

Hi @kasiaaus yep the test app points to the TEST database only (https://test.naturemapr.org/).
