What is an app audit?
The mobile channel is business critical for more organisations than ever before. An App Audit is an efficient and action-led way of reviewing your existing application.
An application audit involves a multidisciplinary team of experts examining every aspect of your current app, studying the design, technology and performance in line with your business objectives. An application security audit can also specifically identify and address any weak spots in your app’s security.
The aim is to find opportunities for quick wins and longer-term improvements that will elevate your app and overall user experience.
When to consider an app audit
There are many reasons why you might be interested in a mobile app audit. One of the most common reasons is poor app performance; if your app is slow, struggling with bugs, or unable to handle surges in users, this can quickly impact your business.
If negative user feedback and reviews are mounting, an app audit can help you resolve the root cause and swiftly fix and improve the situation. Implementing recommendations from an app audit alongside a thorough App Store Optimisation and Community Management strategy can see your reviews significantly improve.
Our core services and process
Understanding your app
Our application audit process begins with a four-hour workshop with representatives from your team, and a product owner, UX designer, mobile lead and technical architect from Apadmi. We learn as much as possible about your goals, systems and current performance to inform the audit and help us understand your business.
Evaluating your app’s design, tech and performance
We undertake a thorough evaluation of various areas of your app. A UX & UI review will check if your current app is intuitive and accessible, and a source code review will ensure that the current solution and its dependencies meet best practice guidelines for that platform.
A mobile lead will audit application security and performance by considering things like risk and whether the system can handle peaks in traffic as your user base expands. We’ll also dive into analytics to identify the technical set-up against our analytics best practice guidelines.
Recommendations and actions for improvement
We’ll create an actionable list of recommended improvements for both short and long-term focuses. This report will cover all the areas that we evaluate and will also be presented to enable questions and any further discussion.
