Data-driven insights derived from mobile A/B testing inform product teams on where to double-down their efforts and where to pivot strategies. A/B testing helps product managers optimize experiences across the entire user journey — from user acquisition on major app stores to ongoing mobile engagement.

From working with companies that have run experiments on over 1 billion mobile devices, we have discovered that companies which iterate rapidly grow on average 4 times faster than their counterparts that don’t.
