Instant visual insights for product teams

Many companies building apps can't align around a shared product understanding. They iterate based on outdated design boards, test only a fraction of use cases, and miss chances to highlight great features in their sales and marketing.
Appviewer provides product managers, QA, devs, designers, product marketers, and executive roles with instant visual insights.

FAQ

How is this different from Figma, Adobe XD, Sketch or Zeplin?

keyboard_arrow_down

While your design tools do a great job in capturing design requirements, they are not built to provide product insights for your team. Appviewer is a great complement in that it's purpose-built to show what things actually look like when implemented, not only how they are supposed to look. Designs are also limited to only a few scenarios. Appviewer integrates with your actual code, so it is an accurate representation of your application, incl. last-minute changes and states outside the happy path. It generally allows capturing a lot more real-world scenarios your users will encounter.

Does Appviewer replace manual testing?

keyboard_arrow_down

Conducting proper functionality testing is essential. But deploying test versions, installing them, and cycling through the steps of all your test scenarios for each relevant test device is also very time-consuming. Appviewer can help you reduce the number of those manual testing cycles by providing a dedicated workflow to visually review changes separately and very efficiently across different screen sizes. Your manual tests can then focus on the behavioral side of a change and are a lot less likely to surface visual bugs.

We already have automated testing in place, do we need this?

keyboard_arrow_down

Automated tests help you ensure that your most important features behave as intended. And while you can also stretch it to ensure that UI elements are, for example, present or clickable, they don't serve the purpose to verify that everything looks as desired. Appviewer can nicely complement your existing test suite to help you ensure a perfect visual appearance of your app as well. In fact, our integration is also based on automated tests, so you gain extra benefits from your testable architecture.

How is this different from screenshot testing a.k.a. snapshot testing?

keyboard_arrow_down

Screenshot testing can help you avoid unintended visual changes. The downside is that also every intended change in appearance would make your tests fail, so developers need to constantly set new reference snapshots to compare with. While this might be acceptable for some cases, for most teams this hit on developer productivity is an issue. Apart from that, those images can seriously bloat your code repository. Nevertheless, we also believe that teams need tools to verify their app's UI, but that the full potential lies in involving other functions of your team or company.

Can we use Appviewer with Confluence, Notion, or our Wiki?

keyboard_arrow_down

Sure! Having great product documentation can really help every product-related role in your company and new colleagues during onboarding. But it involves a lot of manual effort to keep it up-to-date and reliable. And while Appviewer is the go-to place to see your product at a glance, it can also help you update your already existing product docs in, e.g., Confluence or Notion.

Does Appviewer work with Jira Software?

keyboard_arrow_down

You already use Jira or your favorite alternative for managing sprints. Appviewer helps to write more precise requirements and provide clearer feedback by referencing accurate snapshots along every step of your ticket progress. We might offer deeper integration in the future as well.

We are a software agency, is Appviewer also for us?

keyboard_arrow_down

If you are working on a non-trivial application in close alignment with your client, Appviewer is a great way to frequently showcase your progress and collect valuable early client feedback without needing fully-working test versions. It also gives you confidence that every version you ship looks great on the majority of user devices. If you are working with an outsourced development team, it's even more valuable to shortcut feedback loops and have additional means to review a broad range of test scenarios.
