Mobile app performance is tightly related to loading times, responsiveness and speed: 49% of users expect apps to respond in 2 seconds or less. This means that when a mobile app doesn’t meet the expectations (either because of low speed, bad responsiveness or lack of stability), there’s nothing stopping them from deleting it and move on. That’s exactly what 48% will do.

Ab testing to improve performance

Ab testing consists of creating two variants (let's call them A and B) that should be slightly different between them, test how they behave under similar circumstances and understand which one performs better. Even though ab testing tools had their origin in web design, nowadays is pretty common to use them to test mobile applications.  More about ab testing here.

In order to optimize your app performance, you can compare different layouts/designs, different features or even underlying tech aspects of the app, like for which HTTP library to use. As for monitoring, there are a lot of tools for testing. We have tested three of the most used ab testing tools and shared our thoughts about it.
