Commitment to Innovation
As the pioneer of crowdtesting, we have a long history of innovation and bringing next-generation testing concepts to life.

What is Applause Labs?
Building on a History of Innovation
Why do the digital vanguard – next-generation companies like Google, Airbnb and eBay – turn to Applause for their testing? Because we deliver value and innovation in ways no other company can.
That’s why we created Applause Labs – the industry’s largest team dedicated to digital quality and next-generation testing. Applause Labs encompasses our current and ongoing R&D initiatives, as well as our dedicated focus on developing new testing concepts. With Applause Labs, we are hyper-focused on accelerating innovation and developing new ideas quickly and efficiently, so that we can deliver new products and solutions to you faster.
Next-Generation Testing Concepts
We have already launched several innovative products, solutions and features through Applause Labs that are designed to help clients like you, your end users and our uTest community. Here are just a few of the innovations released so far, with many more to come over time.
The AQS evaluates and tracks your release readiness build-over-build so you can launch with greater confidence and quality. It gives scores from 0-100 based on your functional test case results and bugs found in manual functional exploratory testing, and provides a holistic view that combines the two inputs.
Our digital accessibility tool automatically identifies and resolves key accessibility issues earlier in your SDLC. This tool is part of Applause’s ongoing commitment to make our digital world a more accessible place for people with disabilities. To further our commitment to accessibility and inclusivity, we made the tool open source, so that users can access and adjust the source code to align it with their specific use case.
Geo-location, device recommendations and virtual device cloud capabilities were developed to give uTest experts more opportunities to join projects. The geo-location capabilities were created as part of Vista Equity Partners’ annual hackathon, as part of our ongoing commitment to push the envelope on innovation and experimentation.
