To market your mobile app successfully, you should be in a non-stop search of new ideas and solutions to learn what’s best for it. And repeated testing of mobile applications aimed at their optimization is just what you need. Thus, tools for A/B testing of mobile apps can give you good insight into how to attract and gain more users for your app, no matter if it’s live or not. Whether you need to decide on the “Buy” button’s color to stimulate in-app purchases or to find out which elements to include in your app’s interface, just compare two options in an A/B test.
How to pick an A/B tool
While choosing a tool, the best markers are simplicity and ease of use. When considering different A/B tools, the criteria should also include:
- simplicity of installation
- number of features against the budget
- accuracy of test results
- form of support
- marketing and managerial features (if necessary)
- ability to run an experimental A/B test right away, etc.
