Functional Testing

Winning apps work every time, every where and for everyone. With replacement apps a few swipes, touches or clicks away, you need to be confident that your apps work as well in the hands of your users as they do in your lab. Applause is uniquely positioned to help you with its in-the-wild testing approach to achieve 360° app quality™.

Exploratory Testing

Tap into the creativity of the largest global community of professional testers as they discover defects regularly missed by automation and test cases.

Exploratory Testing

If your app has nasty surprises for users, they'll flee for alternatives. While test cases and automated scripts can verify your app meets a minimum level of quality, it doesn't go far enough. There is still plenty of opportunity for bugs to escape into the wild. That's why Applause promotes and performs in-depth exploratory testing. Leveraging our community of global testers can help you:

  • Expect the Unexpected: Having independent, human testers explore your app allows for the discovery of defects and issues that come from unexpected usage patterns or real-world conditions.
  • Squash User Interface Issues: While test automation is useful for discovering back-end issues, interface and user-facing issues are best found by humans.

Test Case Execution

Verify core functionality across a full range of devices, locations and more with comprehensive coverage by Applause.

Test Case Execution

Test cases provide the peace of mind that core features of your app are working as intended. Unfortunately, when your team feels stretched, test cases are often one of the first areas to get cut - even if it does hurt app quality.

Whether you have a simple test case or a suite of test cases, Applause can help maximize your coverage by providing you access to devices and locations you might otherwise not be able to reach. Executing your test cases with Applause gives you confidence that your app runs as well on a Galaxy S4 in Pittsburgh as it does on a Droid 2 in Poland because every user deserves a high quality app.

Don't have time to draft and maintain your test cases? Applause can provide expert test case writers to help fill the gaps.

Test Automation Scripting

A comprehensive testing strategy, one that fits with your 360° approach to app quality, combines in-the-wild testing with test automation. You can leverage automated testing to ensure new code does not break old code, while also documenting assumptions about how different portions of an application should behave. These assumptions and guarantees can be verified with the click of a single button, giving you confidence that your code meets expectations.

Applause provides the test automation engineers, framework and scripts, and also manages the entire execution and maintenance for you.
