About Mobile app testing

  • UserZoom allows you to test your app regardless of the development stage it is in.
  • You can perform different studies in app prototypes, non-live apps, and live apps.

Code Integration (SDK) vs Codeless app testing

Code Integration (SDK) Codeless app testing
  • Your developers have to integrate the UserZoom SDK into your app, and the study is conducted entirely in your app.
  • Intercept users in your app or invite participants via an invitation link.
  • Track participants during Navigation tasks (Clicks & Paths available in results)
  • You can disable specific views of the app from being recorded.
  • For more options, refer to UserZoom SDK and developer options for Mobile app studies
  • No developer involvement is necessary.
  • Invite participants via an invitation link.
  • No tracking is available.
  • The whole screen is recorded during Navigation Tasks (not customizable).

Mobile app testing and Moderated studies

  • UserZoom Moderated studies allow you to test mobile web and mobile apps.
