- In-The-Wild Testing Services: Real world app success starts with in-the-wild testing services that span the app lifecycle.

With functional, usability, localization, load and security testing, the Applause global community of professional testers helps our clients every step of the way. Functional testing from Applause also includes theApplause Software Development Kit (SDK), which handles build distribution, crash reporting and in-app bug reporting.
- Applause Test Automation: With the Applause turnkey test automation solution, companies can now get the software tools, the device access and the expert services to build and maintain a best-in-class automation solution. Applause customers simply detail their desired test scenarios, and Applause takes it from there, providing what competitors can’t, including:
- One-stop shopping – Applause provides the automation framework, scripts, software, devices (shared device cloud, private device cloud, or on-premise devices) and a team of automation experts to create, maintain and adapt a custom automation solution.
- Single automation solution – Rather than having one set of tools for web apps, and another solution for mobile apps, and still another for wearables, Applause Test Automation supports a full range of browser-based and native applications.
- Freedom – After Applause creates the scripts and abstraction layer, the customer owns them. No onerous long-term contractual commitments.
- Faster implementation – Companies can sign up, provide their test automation goals within days, and see positive ROI in weeks – rather than the customary payback period of years (or all too often, never).
- Mobile Beta Management: App users ultimately define app quality, so including them in app development can be vital. Mobile Beta Management is a SaaS solution that helps brands drive successful mobile beta programs. By removing the traditional constraints and limitations that other mobile beta tools impose, while delivering simple, mobile-first participant workflows that lead to high engagement rates, more valuable user feedback and higher quality apps.

Applause Analytics is the only user sentiment tool that continuously crawls more than half a billion user reviews and star ratings from the Apple and Google Play app stores around the world.
