Twitter-owned Crashlytics, a mobile company focused on crash reporting technology for apps, is testing a new tool that allows developers to beta test their apps with real users.

The “beta distribution tool,” as it’s called in the company’s recent blog post, lets developers ship early versions of their iOS or Android mobile apps to users in order to test for bugs and receive feedback. The distribution tool from Crashlytics is also in beta mode. Interested developers need to apply in order to gain access.

In other words, it’s a beta version of the tool for apps in beta.

This is the first time that Crashlytics or Twitter has ever offered a tool for developers looking to test their beta apps.
