Most app developers pay attention to feedback from users, and investigate issues when customers report app crashes or other issues. What would be even better, though, is a proactive system that monitors app behavior and collects crash analytics data so that developers can both address issues proactively, and be able to pinpoint the source of the problem more efficiently.
AppDynamics Mobile Real-User Monitoring (RUM) is a freemium tool that does just that. It also does other things for a fee, but the free version collects app crash analytics data.
I wrote about the tool from AppDynamics in this blog post:
One of the core elements of DevOps is rapid development. Organizations remove obstacles, and function more efficiently to compress timeframes and evolve in real time. In order to be more effective, though, you also need to have real-time feedback on the existing app experience so you can adapt on the fly. AppDynamics wants to provide that with a new self-service freemium version of its Mobile Real-User Monitoring (RUM) platform.
Free mobile crash analytics puts powerful data into the hands of mobile app developers who want to understand the critical failures that drive users away from their app and damage credibility, whether it’s the latest game or a business enterprise app. AppDynamics Mobile RUM enables mobile developers to quickly identify unique and recurring crashes for specific devices, operating systems, or carrier types, and fix them before they become pervasive.
“If you don’t know what your mobile users are doing or know at what point and why your mobile app is crashing, you’re essentially flying blind in the brave new mobile world. With millions of apps available on the Apple and Android app stores, customers have little patience for a poor mobile experience. Not only does the poor mobile app hurt revenues, but it also hurts brand perception” said Jyoti Bansal, founder and CEO of AppDynamics in a press release statement. “With such rich mobile app performance management capabilities available in the market today, there is no reason businesses should leave their brand experience to chance. With free mobile crash analytics, you can quickly pinpoint the causes of mobile crashes and get them fixed before your users defect in droves.”
