The Applause  SDK provides real-time event reporting within the Applause 360o dashboard.

Sessions: Offers a real-time view of testing sessions as they occur. This module provides information on testers, devices, locations, and more. “Sessions” begin when a user starts or wakes an application, and they typically end when the application crashes, when the device announces that a new session has started, or after 48 hours have passed with no new activity.

Crashes:  Provides diagnostic information including timestamp of the crash, stack trace, logs, device conditions and system information.

  

Additionally, it’s possible to drill down further into the data by clicking within each module.

The kinds of data reported to the Applause SDK  depend on whether or not the person using the app is a pre-production tester or a production user.

Pre-Production Testers

The Applause SDK  gathers the following kinds of non-identifying information:

  • Network Status
  • Power Information
  • Screen Orientation
  • Screenshots
  • Information About the App State
  • System Information
  • Telephony Status
  • Detailed Location Status
  • Unique Device IDs (if available)

Production Users

The SDK  gathers a far more limited amount of information from production users. In general, this information is only gathered when the user sends feedback or when the app crashes. The following non-identifying  information is gathered:

  • Network Status
  • Power Information
  • Screen Orientation
  • Information About the App State
  • General Information About Location (if enabled by the user)
  • Hashed Device ID (if available)

The following information is  NEVER  gathered by the Applause  SDK from production users:

  • Unhashed Device IDs
  • Screenshots
  • Device Name
  • Exact Location
  • MAC address, SSID, or other identifying network info

Please note: that you can use the Applause  SDK to manually log additional information about the app, including any of the information that the Applause  SDK does not gather on its own. If you manually configure the Applause  SDK to log additional information, Applause is not responsible for the privacy implications of that information.
