Exploratory Testing

Don't let your customers test for you. Use human insight and intelligence to discover the bugs that escape scripted testing.

Uncover High-Impact Issues in Real-World Use Cases

No matter how well your team codes, or how many test cases they write, when code is released into the wild, invariably a customer will use it in a way you did not expect them to.

With Applause's exploratory testing, our community will discover critical bugs that can only be found through real human interaction with your software. Plus, we'll find those bugs during the release cycle so that your developers can fix the bug before release and you can deliver higher quality code to production the first time.

Leveraging our global community of vetted software experts, you can run exploratory tests on any device, any platform, in any country and with any demographic. Exploratory testing with Applause is easy and actionable. Our professional services team will send your build to targeted Applause testers and deliver to you qualified and prioritized testing results including screenshots, explanations of when/where the bug occurred, and anything else your development team will need to quickly find the bug and fix it.
