The two will also partner to test shortlisted apps in the coveted Appster Awards.
As one of Europe’s top mobile testing specialists, Epicentre will be exhibiting at this year’s Apps World – the leading global multi-platform event in the app industry. Apps World will take place at Earls Court 2, London on 22-23rd October and will attract more than 8,000 attendees over the two days.
Epicentre will be joined on Stand 245 by AQuA, the mobile industry’s independent organization supporting quality app development. As an Endorsed Testing Service Member of AQuA, Epicentre has recently forged a strong partnership with the organization, and the two are keen to share their combined mobile app quality and testing expertise with visitors to the stand.
Epicentre and AQuA have also teamed up to test those apps shortlisted for the Appster Awards. All applicable iOS and Android apps will be tested for free by Epicentre against the AQuA Testing Criteria. All shortlisted apps will be put through a rigorous quality and usability health check using a range of guidelines and diagnostic tools to see if they provide a ‘consistently good user experience without causing trouble to the user or the device.’ Apps that pass the test may be eligible for inclusion within the AQuA Quality App Directory, and those chosen for inclusion will receive the ‘AQuA Quality Badge’, a valuable independent endorsement that only the highest quality apps attain.
“We’re really pleased to be partnering with AQuA to test the shortlisted Appster award entries against the AQuA Testing Criteria,” said Shaun Green, Epicentre’s Testing Project Manager. “We expect to see a high standard in these mobile apps but it’s also rewarding for us to provide independent feedback that enables developers to continue to improve their apps.”
The Appsters shortlist was announced on the 13th September and the final results of the tests will be available to developers at Apps World on the Epicentre and AQuA stand.
