Hide Bugs Without Waiting for the App Store with Apptimize Hotfixes


Ever deploy an iOS app only to find a bug that crashes your app in a completely unexpected scenario? Or your app is working perfectly fine, but someone somewhere updates an API and suddenly an entire section of your app doesn’t work? Ordinarily, you’d have to fix the bug programmatically, submit a new version of your app to the iTunes store, and wait a week for the update while your users are dealing with a faulty app. Now, you can reduce bug liabilities by shipping your iOS app with Apptimize installed.

We are introducing a new feature, Apptimize Hotfixes. In addition to creating A/B tests, our Visual Apptimizer can now enable developers to push out hotfixes within minutes.

In order to take advantage of the new Hotfixes feature, all you need to do is ship the next version of your app with the Apptimize SDK installed. Say the next day, you realize that a feature in your app crashes for a non-trivial subset of users. For example, imagine that you’ve just shipped a new camera based feature and a user has emailed to let you know that they are seeing it repeatedly crash on devices that have the camera disabled by parental restrictions. You can simply go into the Apptimize dashboard and click on “Hotfixes.”


Name the hotfix and create it. Click on the camera icon and hide it.



Now it’s that simple to hide the problem while you work to fix it in your next iOS release.
