Taptu times two: Sponsoring Beer and Blog and an iPhone focus group
While Taptu—makers of some impressive search functionality for the iPhone platform—may be headquartered across the big pond, their community manager, Jason Harris, lives right here in the Silicon Forest. So we’ve got a connection—I mean, besides that prevailing Portland love of all things iPhone.
And this Friday, we’ll have even more of a connection to Taptu. You see, they’re going to be hosting a focus group in which you might be interested. Better yet? They’re going to buy you a beer at Beer and Blog. And nothing makes friends quite like free beer.
First, the serious stuff. Taptu will be hosting a compensated focus group in Portland designed to gather feedback on their iPhone / iPod Touch app.
We want to get your honest feedback to our iPhone Search application and an upcoming application that has yet to be announced. We’ll provide you with a link to the application and then have you download it a few days in advance in order to share your opinions and feedback with us.
Ideally, we’re looking for more casual iPod Touch or iPhone users who interact with their phone by using a few apps and who know how to download and install apps on their fun little Apple portable device(s).
If you qualify and are accepted, you’ll get a cash stipend for your time.
Not interested in testing but still interested in something free? How about a free beer? Taptu will be hosting Beer and Blog Portland this week. And to celebrate, they’ll be buying you a beer.
Although, given the weather, you might want to negotiate for a hot toddy of some sort.
As always Beer and Blog takes place Friday afternoons at the Green Dragon.
