Ensuring Your Apps Earn Applause from Your Users and Envy from Your Competitors

Organizations must ensure that their apps work as intended from day one and to do that must implement a successful app quality strategy that leverages in-the-wild testing and takes into account your users' points of view. Matt Johnston describes how to create and implement a tailored app quality to boost app success, improve user experience and help your apps beat the competition. Johnston will provide strategies, tips, and real-world examples and advice on topics ranging from fragmentation issues, to the different problems inherent in web, mobile and now wearable apps.
