SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Crittercism, the world's first Mobile App Performance Management (APM) platform, today announced the launch and immediate availability of its new crash reporting service for Windows Phone 8, as well as Windows 8. With Crittercism's new, free service, developers can now get a real-time view into app performance on any Windows device – Windows Phone 8, Surface or Windows 8 Desktop – enabling them to quickly identify and resolve bugs, issues and errors immediately.
"In this fast pace application market, developers have the challenge to innovate constantly while keeping apps bug free. Crittercism helps app publishers increase user satisfaction and engagement, by letting developers easily capture quality issues," said JC Cimetiere, Director, Windows Phone Partner & Developer Programs, Microsoft Corp.
Crittercism provides developers with a view of stability, display and performance issues related to their apps on the new Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 devices. While these new features can be tested, it is difficult for developers to understand how their app will perform once live in production. Crittercism provides a real-time view for developers, so they can see how their app will perform in the wild.
"The new Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 operating systems are highly advanced platforms, therefore it is important for developers to have the right tools in place to manage the wide array of new features and functionality. We look forward to now extending our platform across all operating systems that developers are engaging and developing on," said Andrew Levy, Crittercism co-founder and CEO. "With Crittercism, developers can improve app quality and prioritize and fix top issues immediately, acting as an insurance policy against poor app reviews."
Developers can download and install the lightweight SDK in less than 5 minutes. Once integrated, developers simply log in at www.crittercism.com and can see all bugs identified in their code in real-time. In addition to Crash Reporting, Crittercism also offers other advanced features such as Handled Exceptions, Breadcrumbs, Metadata and Dynamic Real-Time Alerts under a 30-day free trial. Following that, developers can choose from three flexible billing plans: Free Crash Reporting, Premium Error Monitoring and Enterprise App Monitoring.
Crittercism, based in San Francisco, California, is the world's first mobile app performance management (APM) solution that offers a real-time global view of app diagnostics and app crashes across iOS, Android and HTML5 on over 250 million unique devices and over 11 billion app loads.
