Corte Madera, CA (PRWEB) July 29, 2014
MyCrowd, a crowdsourcing company, has announced the launch of a new product geared toward businesses who want to find bugs and issues in their websites, web applications and mobile applications.
The offering, called MyCrowd Test®, taps into MyCrowd’s network of thousands of experienced QA testers, and lets customers set a “bounty” for bugs that the testers find. Testers compete to thoroughly test the customer’s site, and MyCrowd sends the customer the details as issues are found in as little as one hour. More complicated tests involving multiple devices and browsers can run for up to week. Today’s launch marks the start of MyCrowd Test’s public beta stage.., usually within two business days.
To date, MyCrowd Test has found more than 10,000 bugs for beta users, with many of them being cross-compatibility bugs that occur only on specific browsers or mobile devices.
“There are over 11,868 different mobile devices across Android and iOS,” explains MyCrowd CEO Matthew Cordasco. “And more than 2.4 million mobile apps between the App Store and Google Play. Device fragmentation has never been worse, and abandonment due to user experience defects has never been higher. MyCrowd Test was built to help businesses ensure that every customer would have the same positive experience, no matter what platform or device they were on. Customers simply demand that apps work right the first time.”
MyCrowd Test has a simple customer interface: customers enter the URL of their website or app, select which devices they’d like to have it tested on, and submit. Within minutes, MyCrowd Test’s active community of QA testers begin a “bug hunt,” competing to find bugs and issues. The company’s proprietary testing platform allows multiple testers to collaborate on thoroughly testing a single site or app, and all bugs are approved by the customer before payment. Customers pay only for bugs they approve.
For a limited time, MyCrowd Test is offering new customers the opportunity to try its product with a free QA test. Customers can sign up here.
MyCrowd’s QA testers are based in the USA, and are vetted and trained by the company. Those interested in joining the testing workforce – MyCrowd is seeking tech-savvy, detail-oriented individuals who can work remotely – should apply here.
