Announcing A Smarter App Picker with Granular Access Level Management

One of the things I hear most often when showing people our platform is how incredibly easy to use it is. It is one of the most common pieces of feedback I get from customers and prospects, and I am extremely proud of that. Our team is committed to creating an intuitive and easy-to-navigate experience within every aspect of our product, starting from how you select your apps. We know that keeping track of all of your apps, from QA apps to smartwatch apps, can get quite messy. To make your life easier, we’ve made a lot of updates to our App Picker that will help you quickly find the app that you are looking for, and move on to more important things.

One of the key distinctions when working with our platform is that you don’t have to waste time declaring your apps within our product. What this means is, you won’t spend hours manually entering apps, one by one. We automatically fetch your apps directly from the app stores, making it easier to manage large portfolios and saving you precious time to focus on work that matters.

The updates we’ve made to the App Picker will allow you to really organize your app portfolio, so that you and your team can access the right apps quickly and efficiently. Here are some of the more notable updates we have made to the App Picker:

  • Smart Ranking – We understand that you likely focus on your most popular apps, so an alphabetical listing is not helpful. As you may be managing 100+ apps, we have developed a new ranking system that lets you see the apps that matter immediately. Apps are now organized by popularity: apps that have our SDK are sorted by number of active users. Apps that don’t have our SDK are organized by download volume. Test apps that are not tied to live apps will be last.
  • Hierarchy – Easily associate live apps with your testing or Watch apps with our new Parent/Child app hierarchy.
  • Search Field – Quickly search for the app you need.
  • Filters – Filter apps by platform (iOS/Google Play) or status (live, test, unpublished).

The screenshot below highlights some of the mentioned changes:
