We're organizing the Sprint Developer Program Hackathon on October 23 and 24 in San Jose, and in addition to Sprint, there will be lots of partners and sponsors there providing great prizes and cool SDKs and APIs to enhance your app. If you haven't already registered, what are you waiting for?
One such partner is Crittercism, which provides mobile app crash reporting and performance monitoring services. Bugs and crashes are inevitable in any app, and Crittercism helps you to detect, react and respond to them in the best way possible. At the hackathon, Crittercism will be providing $1000 worth of their paid services to the best app that integrates their SDK. To learn a little more about it and how to get involved, we did a Q&A with the Crittercism team.
1. Hello! Please introduce our readers to Crittercism.
Crittercism’s crash reporting service allows you to view the live health and availability of your mobile app and proactively manage your production apps. These tools help you get a real-time grasp on what your consumers are doing in your iOS, Android, HTML5 and Hybrid apps, if there are any performance issues, provide you with diagnostics so you know right away if the app has crashed or not and why. This way you can make data driven decisions so you can focus engineering resources and end mobile fragmentation headaches. Crittercism monitors over 250 million unique devices and 6 billion app loads. Based in San Francisco, California, Crittercism’s investors include Opus Capital, Shasta Ventures and Google Ventures.
2. You’ll be awarding a prize for developers who use the Crittercism SDK in their apps at the upcoming Sprint Developer Program Hackathon. Tell us a little bit about what you’re looking for and how developers can win.
