If you are a business owner, you more than likely have an app or are planning to launch one in the future. You create a project to bring your team together and brainstorm ideas. Your developers don their coding caps and get to work. Your designers create designs to see what works best. Your testers subject the app to several rounds of testing. Your app goes through stages of refinement before finally taking shape and being ready to use. Time to pack and go on a vacation! Until your app crashes. 

projects_crashlytics_blogYou can’t let frequent crashes get in the way of the user experience. Compuware, a company that specializes in mainframe software, conducted a survey titled, “Mobile Apps: What Consumers Really Need and Want.” The results showed that while 79 percent of consumers would retry a mobile app only once or twice if it crashed the first time, only 16 percent would give it more than two attempts.

This is why developers use a crash reporting tool like Crashlytics to inform them when and why the app is crashing. Once the Crashlytics framework is installed in your app, it gives you valuable stats, like the number of crashes, number of issues and number of users affected. The issues are assigned an impact level based on the severity. It also gives you fine details, down to the line of code, that caused the crash.

So now, you have your project for your app development team and a great crash reporting tool. But you also have one more thing: a huge canyon in between! To bridge the gap, we bring you the Zoho Projects – Crashlytics integration. When crashes are logged in Crashlytics, you can now automatically add them as bugs in your project and start fixing them right away.

If you are in our Premium or Enterprise plans, you can quickly integrate with Crashlytics by following the simple steps found here. Crashlytics categorizes issues into different levels based on the amount of impact they create. You can choose to log all issues or wait until they reach a particular impact level. Once you have filed the bugs, assign them to your team members and terminate them quickly. 

So, what solution do you end up with by fixing your app’s crashes through the Crashlytics integration with Zoho Projects? Happy customers and a more stable app! Try out this new integration, and don’t forget to give us your feedback.
