By filling out a simple form online (at www.xowave.com/songs4bugs/), XO Wave users who provide information about a new and significant bug in XO Wave are eligible to receive the iTunes coupon. More information about the program can be found at www.xowave.com/songs4bugs.shtml.
"Users like getting free songs, and we like getting complete bug reports," says company founder Bjorn Roche. "We have found that feedback from our users has helped us make a better product, but users don't always provide all the information we need. After taking some inspiration from Mozilla's Bug Bounty program, we decided to offer our users something they would want—free iTunes songs—in exchange for useful bug reports." Roche hopes that the thank-you program will help make XO Wave better: "By letting anyone download and try out our software, we've already gotten a lot of helpful feedback. Our Songs 4 Bugs program is one way of encouraging more users to participate in that dialog."
XO Audio is currently offering the iTunes gift certificates as a pilot program, but if Songs 4 Bugs is successful, Roche thinks the company might keep it up: "If it works out well, there probably won't be any reason to stop."
