Does your app work the first time your user opens it?

Posted on August 02, 2012

Statistics show that 66 percent of newly developed mobile apps fail at launch. The only way to avoid as many failures is by testing the apps with human testers versus computerized/electronic testing. We want developers to be a success, thats why were really pleased to announce our partnership with Global Telecom Testing. One of the reasons we love GTT, is that they have worldwide testers who can perform In-Country QA testing on actual mobile devices! No more half-hearted automated testing. Now you can be sure that you app works in 165 countries. GTT will test your mobile applications to verify and confirm in-Country network access, mobile origination, termination, SMS origination & termination, email access, and data access. According to GTTs Vice President, Stephen Levenson: The convenience of electronic testing provides a false sense of security. But the reality is that computerized/electronic testing simply isnt comprehensive for a global launch. Mobile App Companies invest massive amounts of time and money on development. Choosing not to properly test is like playing Russian roulette. We know that bad reviews kill app download rates. You want your users to have a positive first experience “ that means testing on as many devices as possible, in as many countries as possible! So, what are you waiting for? Get yourself over to and make sure your app work everywhere. Your apps reputation depends on it.
