Performance Test Your Smart TV Application

We all know that TVs (and the people who watch them) are smarter than ever before, but what about your smart TV application? If you’re planning on releasing a Smart TV app or already have one sitting in an app store, knowing its performance limitations is the first step in improving conversion and user retention.

It’s no big secret that, for the end user, an application’s loading time is the ultimate yardstick for engagement and retention. In 2013, the average attention span was a mere 8 seconds – one second shorter than that of a goldfish, and that number is still dropping. All the bells and whistles in the world won’t save an underperforming app from the scrap heap of search results if it isn’t performing at speed.


That’s why Apica now offers a full-service smart TV application test that measures the performance of your application from the viewer’s seat

We can analyze the entire user journey, from first click to exit. Or, maybe you just want to look at how the API calls are showing up. Either way – Apica has a customized solution for your brand.

Leverage our extensive load testing experience in desktop and mobile markets to shave off seconds and maximize profit margins. We can test your native Smart TV, PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, and mobile applications.
