With thousands of apps being released every single day, the
competition to stand out and receive 5 star reviews is tougher than ever. And nothing hurts an app’s review rating more than unsolved bugs at launch.
Instabug is a company in our current Winter 2016 class that helps developers position their apps for success both pre- and post-launch.
Mike Butcher from TechCrunch wrote about Instabug in a story published this week:
Incredibly, Instabug started building the app during the turmoil in Egypt back in
2012 and made it out of the chaos of the Egyptian revolution to make it
to, and through, YC. That’s True Grit.
…It helps app developers fix bugs before even submitting their apps to
the store, while still engaging their users after the app is launched.
They claim they can thus cutting the number of negative reviews by 80%.
Users can report bugs, send feedback and ask questions by just
shaking their phones, without the need to leave the app. They can also
attach screenshots, images and voice notes. Instabug then captures the
steps to reproduce the problem and all other device details so that
developers can fix the bug faster.
