In crowdtesting, a large group of volunteers test software via the Internet. Applications and apps can be tested for weaknesses and faults before they go on the market. It can be used to test user friendliness as well.
Historically, “crowdtesting” is a very young term. It emerged from the term crowdsourcing that was coined in 2006 by Jeff Howe and Mark Robinson to describe the outsourcing of partial tasks from companies to a group of volunteers.

The group of volunteers, the so-called “crowd” is special because they have all the necessary tools at their disposal. These include smartphones, laptops or tablet PCs. This group therefore covers all the end devices and operating systems and can test the compatibility of the software with these devices. The crowd can therefore be put to use in many ways. A test project assignment can be tested by a large group on the Internet. In addition to apps, online shops or browser games can also be examined. Following this, each tester writes a report regarding the user-friendliness and errors. The developers receive a detailed report and can improve their application before release. The testers who volunteer to do this work often receive a reward, for example money.
