Making apps free for testers?

Is there any way to reward people who have volunteered to test applications through appworld?

 

In the vendor account area, users can be added to the 'sandbox' area, and they can download an app for free. However there is a 10-user limit for this. If we need to remove beta-testers to make way for new people, are those 'removed' beta testers still entitled to the app (i.e. without having to pay)?

Re: Making apps free for testers?

Once someone is removed from the sandbox, it means only that they will not be able to download the app again without paying. If they leave the app installed it will be unaffected by the change, but any download, either to reinstall, update, or install on a new device even with the same BBID, would be as though they'd never been in the sandbox.

I believe RIM has plans for improvements in this whole area but I don't think we'll learn more until some time after launch. It's also an area in which we've been begging for changes for a long time with minimal progress. We can only hope with BB10 out the door, and the BlackBerry World updates in place, they'll finally be able to move much faster on this stuff.
