Most business leaders know that mobile app performance has a significant impact on revenue generation, user retention and customer loyalty – especially during the busy end of the year holiday season when users’ tolerance for slow response time, sluggish performance and dropped transactions is at its lowest. People know that mobile app performance is important but it is unclear what constitutes poor performance: When is your app fast? When is it slow? How do my competitors perform in this regard?
Every mobile app developer should consider how end-users of their app experience their app or service. For this purpose, Bitbar has developed its user experience monitoring that allows app developer organization to monitor, inspect and get instantly alarmed if something happens with the user experience flow from end-user’s point of view. To get the best possible tools and method available for developers, we’ve launched a localized monitoring service that uses real Android and iOS devices, with real networks and variety of different geographical locations.
This blog provides all steps you need to do in order to get started with synthetic mobile monitoring at any location around the world.
When it comes to measuring mobile application and website health, the most basic – but also the most important – metrics are availability and performance. These metrics can be obtained by monitoring app, website or API running in real conditions, utilizing real networks and connection to back-end services.

By monitoring your mobile app, website or API either by running synthetic tests periodically or by looking at end user experience on aggregate level using real user monitoring (RUM) provides comprehensive understanding of health of your mobile product at any given point in time.
