The Q4 uTest Bug Battle is officially underway. As we noted yesterday, this quarter’s competition will challenge testers to find bugs in three of world’s most prominent specialty e-tailers: eBay, Overstock and Zappos.
So which of these three sites will have the most robust feature set? Which will have the most intuitive search and product comparison features? Which one will have the most user friendly mobile application? And most important of all, which one will have the most bugs?
That’s for our community to determine. Once the testing phase of the competition is over (on Monday, November 8 at noon) we’ll be sending surveys to all participating testers, where they will compare the usability and feature set of these three applications.
At this point, I shouldn’t have to tell you about the many reasons why you should participate, but I will anyway. For one, a strong performance in the uTest Bug Battle can help you get recognized by our project managers, which means you’ll be invited to more private test cycles. It’s also a great way to hone your testing skills. Oh – and did we mention that we’re giving away $4000 in prizes across a broad range of categories?
So here’s your chance. Log into your uTest account, scour these apps for defects and report them in a clear, concise manner. And if you do it better than your peers, you could be named the Q4 Bug Battle winner and earn some big prize money for your time.
Need some pointers? This uTest Forums thread will show you how to increase your odds of winning.
