This week was “alpha week” (aka, get it out week, live user testing week) for our Reacht (@reachtapp) application. We’ve been in testing mode with real users for a while but this week we invited a larger group to experience and comment on the idea, branding, style guide, application, messaging, functionality, user interface, user experience. Our Product Manager, Will Fulton, (@wyfulton) did a great job putting the evolution together.
We ended up with some fantastic feedback. I want to personally thank those that participated:
- Hap Connors @HapConnors
- and Mollie and Maggie (thanks, ladies!!)
- Chris Abraham @chrisabraham
- John Crandell (from upstairs – thanks John!)
- Dan Morrison @DanCitizen
- Linda Clevenger @healthy1
- Leif Johnston @LeifJohnston (and Alexandra!)
- Stephen Lee @stephen_lee87
- Andrew Curtis @andrewhcurtis
- Chris Muldrow @muldrow
We REALLY hope everyone developed an eagerness to use the product and enjoyed a short evening of playing with software, eating some pizza and drinking a beer.
David Malaxos (@dmlxs) is on the Reacht team and participated from Florida! :)n We love our Ricky the Robot (thanks Double Robotics!)
More thanks to the whole Reacht team who brought the product together!!!

I’ll have a longer post out soon with the technical details of what we learned and how. I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to say thanks to our community (#FBXG) team for the help. It takes a village.
