An effective app testing strategy is crucial for meeting your app quality goals. Meeting user expectation is hard in today’s digital era where users are spoilt for choice. Once glitch and users will abandon your app or website. No matter how much you test your apps in a lab environment, it is impossible to replicate the various factors and conditions that affect your app in the real world.
The only way to check the health of your app is to test it out in the open. Crowd testing is the best way to test your app in real world conditions.
Crowd testing platforms basically, enables companies to work with professional testers from across the world, making it easier to test your app by location & on various configurations without any major investments in procuring the devices or hiring full time QA resources. That is why even tech giants like Google & Microsoft are relying on crowd testing to test their apps out in the open to find defects before customers do.
With the latest launch of the Bug-a-thon platform by 99tests, companies can now get a taste of crowd testing in action. Participating companies can get their apps tested for free by the crowd testers from the testing community of 99tests and can find difficult software bugs in their app for free.
How Bug-a-thon works?
The free registration for the 99tests Bug-a-thon platform is open to all everyday, on the company’s portal. All you need to do is submit your app’s URL to be eligible for free crowd testing. Every week, 10 apps will get free app testing. The contest is open to both mobile apps and websites. The registered companies can access up to 30 valid bugs.
99tests offers monetary rewards to its crowd testers for finding the bugs. The testers are paid according to the quality of the bugs. The quality of a bug is judged based on the severity, impact and complexity of the vulnerability exposed.
The team at 99tests hopes that the Bug-a-thon platform will help companies with their product quality analysis and will give them the insights they need for fixing crucial issues in their app. The goal is to create awareness about crowd testing and also to help companies make their apps more powerful.
The Bug-a-thon platform thus enables companies to work with the most talented crowd testers and find difficult software bugs.
