Bug testing of mobile software
October 27, 2010 1:42 PM

I constantly find bugs in Apple iOS devices, such as the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch. I send these in as bug reports often with images, video, and whatever is necessary to convey the bugs. I download beta versions of iOS software so that way I can help fix things well.
And at times, I'm the first one to trap certain bugs, especially UI bugs (like buttons not working, font not changing, screen not rotating, certain behavior occurring that isn't expected) or problems with connectivity not occurring when I do certain tasks on the device.
Occasionally I also send in bug reports for Mac software not functioning properly, such as in certain situations that I create either on purpose or by accident, Mail.app showing a negative inbox count.

Most people who I know can attest to the fact that I am very warm, sociable, and kind with people. In the past, I used to be affiliated with a religious organization and gave speeches from the platform as well as took part in "religious marketing", so to speak. As a result, I would be very polite and friendly with the team and customers.

I do have a basic understanding of Photoshop and a more intermediate understanding of Keynote. I have worked on some iPhone app development and even without a steady hand in drawing, I still have a detail-oriented mindset which makes up for what I lack. I generally explain it to people this way: "I can picture in my mind defined details of fonts, images, and other visuals, but I can't get them on paper. If I had a steady hand, so to speak, I would likely be a good artist."

I can travel anywhere within the five NYC boroughs. I am able and willing to work part time or full time, except for the fact that I have college the entire day on Mondays and Wednesdays. Other than that, I am flexible with my schedule. I moved from Staten Island to Brooklyn within the past month, so my commute will be much simpler.
