How the app test works
To have your app tested with methinks hub of participants (Thinkers) or with your own users, you need to set up the test within your research project and upload a build of your app. As soon as participants start testing your app, you can view the app test analytics, session recordings, bug reports, and app suggestions in your methinks dashboard.
You can also add app test surveys that can be triggered by events, accumulated time, or session count.
Pro tip: methinks tech team will support you with Steps 1 and 2 below to ensure that the app test is properly set up to deliver the insights you are looking for. Contact us for more information.
