Meaningful Work

We’re changing the way products are designed and built by making it easier for users to get involved.

Most app testing companies run testers through the gauntlet to earn cash. Download the app, install it, read the instructions, record your face, talk through your thoughts, respond to a bunch of questions, etc. This type of testing is time consuming and super awkward.

Apptourage is flipping the script. We’re turning swipes and taps into meaningful feedback for product owners. No downloads, no talking, no video. Our testers react to app screenshots to earn cash on the spot. Imagine getting paid anywhere, anytime, with just a few taps. It’s a game changer.

On the company side, even great designers suffer from what we like to call “because-I-said-so-itis” (very scientific term). Apptourage cures the itis by allowing product owners to test screenshots with users early and often, before writing any code. We want companies to build better products, faster, and we’re arming them with the data they need to make smarter product decisions from day 1.
