Bangalore: App Quality Alliance (AQuA), the mobile industry’s non-profit organization supporting quality app development, announced at Apps World that it has created a Quality Badge for developers to use in association with apps that have met a certain quality level.

Developers who are awarded the badge for their apps will stand out from the crowd for having achieved the most credible, independent recognition in the industry. The badge was developed in response to demand from developers whose apps have been included in AQuA’s Quality App Directory, the mobile industry’s listing of top quality apps.

AQuA launched the directory in October 2012, following extensive beta testing with developers, and has already seen it populated with some of the best loved mobile apps from the leading developers. Apps which achieve the quality levels of AQuA Member Verified or Test House Verified will be awarded the Quality Badge. The badge will be made available to qualifying developers by AQuA and can be displayed alongside their app in distribution channels and marketing materials.

 “As an AQuA member, Sony is now actively using the Quality App Directory as a source for good quality apps. The added recognition to the developers of being able to promote their apps using the Quality Badge is another step in the right direction for AQuA and the industry as a whole,” said Magnus Ekenheim, Head of Developer Technical Services at Sony Mobile Communications

AQuA member AT&T has also announced that it will be using the Directory as a source of developers and applications for its Certified Solutions Catalog. “The benefit to AT&T of using the Quality App Directory is the assurance of knowing the apps in the Directory have met a certain industry level. The testing we do afterwards is AT&T-specific and relates to our network and devices, and isn’t a duplication of what’s already been done” commented Dave Okamoto, Sr. Marketing Manager, AT&T. “As the Certified Solutions Catalog is platform-agnostic, we look forward to the Quality App Directory expanding to cover additional platforms in the near future” he continued.
