What is Applause?
Applause is a top test management software used by companies across the globe.
It offers some of the best digital experiences to its clients by developing authentic, realistic human input at every phase or stage of the software.
Applause is responsible for software tests, research, and usability feedback. The application can work across different outlets, for instance, mobile phones, digital wearable, smart cars, web pages, and desktops.
With the increase in technology, the days when product testing was done in the laboratories are long gone. Laboratory tests take a lot of time and resources to find the end product which is preferred by the consumers.
Therefore, there is a need to provide real-time testing of mobile applications to get quality insights on the application’s usability, feasibility, and scalability.
The materials, products, and programs designed by Applause provide fast feedback and exploratory testing of the product for the end users. The real-time testing approach helps the business in testing applications in real time situations, and on actual devices, different locations, and different platforms.
As one of the world’s leading crowd testing providers, Applause connects the applications and websites in the mobile devices, desktops, web pages, products and in-store experience to the uTest.
Consequently, uTest testers provide an easy way of testing a wide variety of Android devices and iPhone applications. These application testers are thorough and fast in the testing and managing process.
Applause focuses on real-world testing for the desktops, mobile apps, and web. Such tests are concerned with developers’ testing the software outside of the laboratory and in the real world where the product is scrutinized beyond a basic functional level.
Applause also provides users with an SDK (Software Development Kit) containing a set of programming tools that assist the developers in creating the applications for a specific platform.
The software developing tool in Applause equips the application developers with tools that allow them to quickly build high performing mobile applications for the tablets and smartphones.
Applause has a mobile application software development kit for bugging, debugging and crash reports on Android and Windows mobile devices.

You can bring together a vast range of testing services and application quality tools that enable the company to achieve the 360-degree application quality.
Provides everything you need for a competitive edge
Applause offers capabilities to develop the right application with the right automation, build, shape, interface, design, and security. This gives you a competitive edge over other companies that try to transform the software by bringing high-quality applications for faster marketing.
Companies can conduct thorough crowd testing which allows the application to obtain real data and insights with the professional testers. Crowd testing is a form of testing where a crowd sourced medium is used to connect the testers from other users around the world for testing projects. When it comes to applications such as games and e-commerce applications, crowd testing is the best solutions to test the apps. When the application is checked externally, harsh and varying conditions of the application may be faced which make it easy to weed out some of the defects in the application. Corporations like Google and Microsoft trust the use of crowd testing as a method of testing their applications.
Consumers look for security when considering test management software. With security testing, they can know how the app will work on the security standards on the application by finding, fixing and preventing security susceptibility. The testing features are thus result oriented, which gauges the likability of the application to the users and how they review the product.
Personal customer support
Applause provides a customer relationship that personal in nature. This enables users to have a one-on-one relationship between the application and the user. Applause assists most clients by providing testing services for their software products such as performance testing, security testing and functional testing for quality assurance.
