Geekword – Beta
A point in the development process of a software application where most of the base functionality has been completed but the product is still in a testing phase and not ready for the general public. At this point of the process, outside users may be asked to “Beta Test” the product. This means that they are given a copy of the software to use with the understanding that they will provide feedback to the developers.
I managed to get a beta copy of Zombie Smashers IV and boy is it buggy.
