Social & Communications

Social applications now drive almost all aspects of human communication across all kinds of mobile and website environments.  From social networks to email to just keeping track of information, users want all access, all the time, and with little patience for a tool that is slow, hard to use, or leaves them worried about their privacy or security. Applause helps companies create usable, secure, and high-availability digital experiences for our connected world.

Social & Communications Challenges

Usability, privacy and security reign supreme when it comes to social media. Unfortunately, these can be some of the more difficult areas to master. Social apps and sites often run into trouble with:

  • Usability and intuitiveness
  • Security and privacy standards, compliance and open communication
  • Search accuracy and connection feedback
  • Accurate GPS and geolocation readings
  • 3rd party API integrations

It’s all-too-easy for users to move on to the latest and greatest social media experience – keep them using yours by creating a fun, usable, secure social experience.

"We were trying to find a balance between what our beta community does well and what our in house QA team does. Applause was a perfect fit, since they would give us real-world testing like our beta community, but they would report bugs into a dedicated platform, making it easier for us to sort through and analyze."
