Developers: improve the quality of your Windows Phone apps with Bugsensitive

BugSense (www.bugsense.com) is a handy service for developers building apps on Android, iOS, Windows Phone or using other technologies. Helping content creators develop higher quality apps through bug and crash reporting, analytics and more enables consumers to enjoy apps and games with better experiences.

A new BugSense client has been released for Windows Phone and is a must download for any developer. Say hello to Bugsensitive.

The app itself has been available for some time, but we're looking at a more stable release and the developer has only just become comfortable with spreading the word before Christmas arrives. There is a requirement before you get started with Bugsensitive - you'll need a BugSense API. Once you've registered with the service and have the API token, you're good to go.

Bugsensitive itself acts just as you'd imagine. You fire up the app on your Windows Phone, enter your API token to sign in and all your projects will be displayed for access. From there you'll be able to see bug reports, insights and details to give you an idea as to where you've gone wrong and how you can work to reduce the number of issues in the app.

Live Tiles are supported, displaying how many errors have been caught since you last ran the app. With yet another way to monitor published work, we're sure developers will dig the features and connectivity to BugSense.

If you enjoy the app, but would like to see some features and improvements implemented in a future release, be sure to give the developer behind Bugsensitive a heads up. You can get in touch with the team over on their website (www.rwrbrille.at) or Twitter profile. We'll keep an eye on this app to monitor its progress.

You can download Bugsensitive from the Windows Phone Store for free (Windows Phone 8 only). via: @BugSense

  • Very handy tool. But the Tile and shortened name of the app is funny...
  • Has anybody emailed this to Gameloft???? Just saying =)
  • LMFAO XD
  • Very handy!
  • You can side load on WP? Wow
  • Only on interop unlocked and dev unlock devices
  • Nice, they should open this API to truecaller.
  • I beta tested this a bit a little while back. Was fast and looks great.
  • Its super buggy...
  • Oh the irony
  • Send this app to Zynga so they can fix their apps too O_O I'm tired of Words with Friends crashing 10 times before I can make my next move O_O
  • THAT would be a good test --- if it could help Zynga, it could help anyone! Words with Friends is the worst pile of flaming......well, it's a poorly written app.
  • Not as bad a almost EVERY Gameloft game having broken/glitched achievements!
  • Bs haha
  • I gave up on BugSense. Their pricing structure is somewhat... expensive. Much prefer Crittercism these days.
  • I'd love it if MyFitnessPal used something like this, or even bothered fixing old bugs.
  • Awesome, just signed up. Going to incorporate the service in my app later today
  • Nice...which app have you written for WP...? :)
