Velocity 2013 Speaker Series: A Sneak Peek With WebPagetest and Appurify
Now that more companies have basic mobile strategies in place, they are turning their attention to the issue of performance.
Mobile developers are thinking about how fast their apps and mobile webpages load and—more importantly—what they can do to make them faster. Consumers have little patience for slow loading apps and their expectations are only going to get more stringent. This expectation likely contributed to Apple making changes so that apps on iOS 7 load 11% faster than on iOS 6.
The challenge is that measuring performance for mobile is not as easy as it is for web. Many of us have used tools like WebPagetest to assess website performance across different browsers/locations and pinpoint areas for improvement but fully functional, equivalent tools don’t exist yet for the mobile space.
This has left mobile developers ill equipped to create the highest-performing mobile apps and websites.
