Games and Gaming

Online games provide entertainment to users for as many hours - or minutes - as they like. Whether on a mobile device or desktop, the one thing that all games have in common is that gamers want an eye-pleasing game that works well, fast, and most importantly, keeps track of their score and standings. With Applause, our global community of testers can help make sure that your game plays well in all environments, on all devices and consoles, and from every angle.

Games & Gaming Challenges

Developing games for mobile is entirely different than the web and desktop, which are entirely different than console games. But quality is important no matter which media platform you're developing for. Here are a few common challenges shared by all game developers:

  • Supporting multi-player features - especially when players aren’t near each other
  • Authenticity challenges - no one wants their saved game or standings ruined
  • Accurate social integration
  • Consistent performance across all hardware/software combinations your target audience might use
  • Making sure everything is perfect for launch - launch is everything when it comes to games

How Applause Helps

Fresh Eyes

Your in-house QA team has certainly caught important bugs and issues, but they’ve been close to the game for too long and aren’t thinking like a new player. Testing in the wild puts your game in front of testers with fresh eyes who will approach the game like one of your fans.

Find Fringe Cases

Real testers, using real devices outside of the lab will turn up issues you didn’t consider, that only effect certain device/software/version combinations or that simply cannot be discovered in a well-connected, close proximity lab.


Gain actionable feedback from real users and UX experts at all stages of the development lifecycle and make decisions based on real-world usability standards. Ensure your applications are intuitive, match your users' expectations and follow accessibility guidelines, anywhere and for everyone.


Is your game taking users through your intended customer journey? Can it stand up to high traffic events, such as a new update? Monitor metrics and data from your real users to see if your game is delighting them in every way or if a feature, quality or attribute is leaving them disappointed.
