AppPulse Suite Review

Frequent, detailed logs help developers determine and validate root causes of crashes, identifying areas of improvement for an app's next version.

Valuable Features:

We provide software testing services to third-party organizations with HP AppPulse. You can see the real user experience live. We can see if our users are experiencing low UI performance, stability problems, or high resource consumption on one screen. 

We had a client with a lot of crashes and we were able to show them how many users were suffering from crashes and which user action was causing the most crashes. This helped us focus on what they needed to fix from the developer side to quickly improve the user experience. It gave us VIP access to app behavior.

Improvements to My Organization:

To fix a crash we need to know the root cause. The detailed log is sent frequently to the developer to help improve the next version. I've worked with developers before, but since using HP AppPulse, we work together to provide the client with the best validation possible.

The service also features FunDex, which is a score related to how enjoyable the application is to use. The score starts at 100 and an app loses points for various transgressions, such as crashes and sluggish performance. Developers can drill down and see how and why various points are being lost from their app’s score.

We only get one chance to make a good first impression, so let's make sure our app launches quickly.

Use of Solution:

3 months

Initial Setup:

It takes only minutes to add your first app. Once you select your platform, Apple or Android, download the SDK and start seeing data right away.


Quick ROI and low entry-point pricing.

Other Advice:

HP has released new versions of Mobile Center, which helps to automate app testing across a variety of real devices. Mobile Center also integrates new versions of LoadRunner, the firm’s load testing software, and Performance Center, which can be used to test app performance. There is also an updated version of StormRunner Load, a cloud-based service that can test with thousands of virtual users from different geographies.

Thanks for insightful review. Using AppPulse Mobile together with Mobile Center and the additional HP testing tools brings a full support for the DevOps Eco system. We are working on tight integration flows between AppPulse Mobile and those HP ADM tools.
