Are you building new web or mobile software? What are your goals while implementing your application? There could be many answers, like efficiency, more effective user experience, proper security and authentication, good marketing features and so on. In simple terms, the work we do should ultimately satisfy the end user. So, for any successful application, an end user’s happiness should be the first goal. A customer should never get frustrated with your application, it only costs you time, money and a whole bunch of lost customers.
I was thinking, what could be the easiest solution to measure and achieve a positive customer satisfaction? Recently, I came across Raygun.com. This is the best solution to all your questions and makes our effort we put into the application worth doing.
With Raygun, we can monitor, identify and solve the issues in our application before they affect the end users. Raygun has the in-depth technology, expertise and scale to help us deliver the very best customer experiences and drive a competitive advantage.
Here are some details about raygun.com which could help you to make your application an amazing one.
1. Unlimited applications
We can add any number of applications to detect and diagnose errors in production, all within a single platform, regardless of what web or mobile programming language or platform we use, all we need is a simple Raygun code snippet.
2. Keep track of all application errors in a beautiful dashboard
With this application, we can keep track of many details such as:
- Total number of users

With these details, we can do real-time error handling and crash reporting and design our application accordingly with the data we collect.
3. Crash reporting and collection of live crash data
Raygun has introduced two products, creating a powerful suite of tools that can be used independently but are best used together.
- Crash Reporting and
- Pulse – Real User Monitoring
Error and crash reporting from Raygun, provides us with detailed error reports, so that we can rectify issues quickly and maintain a quality application for the end user. Each error existence is shown in detail with full diagnostic information about how and when the error occurred, so that we can easily monitor and remove errors in our application.
A small sample of the error details we are able to collect are:
- When the error occurred?
- Where is the error coming from in our code?
- The affected users for each error occurrence
- The URL in which the error exists
- The user IP address
4. Pulse – Real User Monitoring
Pulse is a real user monitoring product that will really help us in making sure our app is going to deliver the best quality product for our users.
Raygun has both real user monitoring for websites and real user monitoring for mobile .
This product gives us very useful inputs, so that we can plan our app to always work in a better way. It provides
