No tricks this month, but plenty of treats!
Our product and development teams have been hard at work making already great tools even greater. We get a ton of great and helpful feedback from our customers (keep it coming!) and we don’t just listen, we act. October’s updates feature some exciting updates pulled straight from our “Most Requested” list.
Applause Bug Tracking System Integration 3.0
Integration with bug tracking systems like JIRA, Mantis, Bugzilla and Rally is one of the most asked about, and most utilized, features within the Applause 360o App Quality™ platform. Customers love the fact that they can easily and conveniently push bugs and crashes delivered from their Applause services and products – like in-the-wild testing and the Applause SDK – straight to their own backend BTS implementations.
Because it’s such a popular feature, it’s also a feature that we get a lot of user feedback about. Well, we listened. We’re excited to announce the release of Applause BTS Integration 3.0!
3.0 streamlines the integration process and introduces support for customized field mappings and automations. You can now seamlessly integrate Applause into your internal BTS workflows. Want to automatically assign all critical bugs from Applause to a particular engineer, while setting custom severity and priority values to synch with your in-house BTS workflows? Now you can.

International App Store Support
The world of mobile apps is just that, the world. App developers have a global audience that they reach through a multitude of localized, international app stores – and all of those app stores are flush with user sentiment.
We’ve introduced support for app stores in the US, Canada, Great Britain and Australia, but we’re certainly not stopping there. We have support for a new batch of supported countries scheduled for release by the end of the year, with support for additional countries coming after that at a fairly quick cadence. The world is talking, and now you can listen to it with Applause Analytics.

Applause Analytics can do more than offer actionable insight into how your users are defining app quality, it can also be your 24/7 eyes and ears. Just tell Applause Analytics what topics are most important to you and when your users start talking about them in their app store reviews, Applause Analytics will let you know. Applause Analytics can also keep an eye on user sentiment trends for you. If user sentiment begins to rise or fall, Applause Analytics will make sure you’re in the know.

We’ve gone to great lengths to improve mobile app search, making it even easier for Applause Analytics users to find just the app they’re looking for within the metaphorical app store haystack.
- We’ve improved on how we’re ranking search results based on relevancy and priority.
- Bad spellers, we’ve got your back. Applause Analytics will now make a “best guess” based on user input, and will return search results ranked by the popularity of the closest search terms.
- We don’t like junk apps any more than you do. Junk apps will now be pushed to the bottom of the search results.
There’s plenty more to come before the end of the year, so stay tuned!
