I finally stopped stagnating long enough to start working on an application for Stack Apps using the API. Development is going well and within the next 6 to 8 weeks there will be enough functionality for the application to be usable.
I am hoping to be able release the application using a release early/release often methodology, however after a quick chat with Rebecca and reading How to list your app I need some clarification on Jeff's comment:
Remember, you should only publicize your app if it can actually be used!
Effectively I would like to add my application to Stack Apps, and for the initial Alpha/Beta release have users email me requesting access to the application, allowing for a controlled environment of testing before throwing the application out to the world.
Would this be acceptable within the Stack Apps listing, or should I only list the application here once it is available for download by everyone? Alternatively, what would be the best way to get users testing a new Stack Apps application?
