Crittercism Offers First Ever Access to Android NDK Performance Management
SAN FRANCISCO, July 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Crittercism, the world’s first Mobile App Performance Management (APM) solution, today announced the availability of its Crittercism NDK beta program. This new offering reveals for the first time ever, previously undetectable performance issues originating within Android NDK. Crittercism, once again, has invested in bringing the tools that developers need, and is proud to bring to market a production ready SaaS platform for monitoring NDK related performance issues.
Crittercism has worked in conjunction with development teams from global leaders in Android development, including one of the largest mobile gaming platforms, ngmoco:). “We are thrilled to be an early adopter of Crittercism NDK,” said Payton R. White, Director of Technology, ngCore, ngmoco:). “With Android NDK support from Crittercism, we can now manage our production apps with the confidence that every critical bit of information is being collected, allowing us unique visibility into our Android performance and stability.”
NDK performance issues cause such deep crashes that even Android market developer provided tools cannot report. By exposing these issues with Crittercism Mobile APM, developers are now able to decrease investigation time, and continue to lower development costs, which ultimately improve app ratings, reviews, conversion and revenue.
“Many of the performance and stability issues that developers on the Android platform face can be sourced back to graphic acceleration and other hardware specific differences between devices. This is what mobile insiders refer to as fragmentation,” said Andrew Levy, Crittercism’s Co-founder and CEO. “NDK related stability issues are the ‘black-sheep’ of the Android platform. It’s a huge issue, and we’re excited to be providing developers the ability to monitor and solve these types of issues. No one’s talking about it, but this is a real black-hole of mobile development.”
By integrating Android NDK support into its crash reporting and error analysis SDK, Crittercism can now provide Android developers with a more comprehensive view of stability issues that face the Android developer community. NDK based error logging will allow developers to improve the overall performance and engagement of their mobile apps, as well as increase revenue.
