Federal CrowdSource Mobile Testing Program

Many smartphones and tablets on a table displaying the same app.Does your mobile site function properly on all devices your users have?

Are you able to test your mobile site on all devices that access it?

Do you have the time and money to maintain a mobile test lab?

We’re guessing not.

Our CrowdSource Mobile Testing program is a FREE service provided for federal agencies by federal employees. We do compatibility testing (determining how mobile websites display on the multiple makes and models of devices, operating systems, and mobile browsers), for mobile websites that agencies think are mobile-friendly.

Here’s How It Works

You Tell Us Your Top Tasks for your mobile website –

We help you create a script for our testers!

We recruit an army of Testers (all federal employees) to evaluate your application on a wide variety of mobile devices and provide you with a results report you can immediately use to enhance your application.

It works, take our customers’ word for it!

FEMA on testing the Help for OKC app: Wanted to thank you guys one more time for helping out… you provided extremely timely and valuable feedback that really helped push the project forward… but that was the intended effect.

USDA FSIS on testing FSIS mobile site: I would encourage anybody out there to try this. Everyone provided great feedback. Some of it was dead on, some of it was surprising, most of it was useful. 

Whether you have a site ready for testing or want to join our cadre of volunteer mobile testers, complete the Contact Us form, selecting “Question about the Federal Crowdsource Mobile Testing Program,” as the subject and indicate in the message whether you have a site you’re interested in having tested or if you want to become a tester.

But Wait! Do You Test Native Apps?!?!  

Our program has tested a native app or two, but there have been some challenges to doing so. If your app is already in the app stores, then we won’t have a problem. Just complete the Contact Us form mentioned above and let us know how we might be able to help.
