  3. 3. Market Direction For Mobile Wallets In India India has witnessed a huge growth in the sale of smartphones in the last few years. By 2017, the number of smartphone users in India is estimated to hit 340.2 million. World wide, the figures are projected at 2 billion.

A relatively young concept in India, mobile wallets have come in the lime light after the government led move to ban currency notes of Rs500 and Rs1000.

In the absence of sufficient cash, people are using mobile wallets to complete their daily transactions.

Open These wallets are generally issued by Banks. They allow cash withdrawals apart from payments.

  9. 9. App Quality Analysis: Significance of Using ACC
  10. 10. The ACC Model ACC is a framework invented at Google to test products, ensure maximum coverage and release high quality products to end customers. The ACC model basically helps you prioritize your testing efforts in line with app features that matter the most. ACC stands for Attributes, Components & Capabilities. We used part of the ACC framework to break down the problem into common grounds and ensure complete coverage. The biggest benefit of using the ACC framework across a large group of users from the crowd, is that it makes testing and comparison a comprehensive affair. You get a wide coverage across various aspects of the product. ACC model when used with a crowd platform in particular, helps get a clear view of the product and hence the testing and comparison activity is extremely quick and efficient. The 99tests platform has testers with the ability to test an app functionally and technically with both, planned and exploratory testing. It also has users with the ability to rate parameters of the app from a Usability angle.
  11. 11. The ACC Table Attributes They describe the product’s purpose and goals. Examples: Secure, Easy, Reliable, Configurable Components They identify the various parts of an application. Examples: Signup, Login, Settings, Search, Cart, Payment Capabilities They indicate what the product actually does. Examples: For the component “profile” & attribute “configurable”, the capabilities will be, “User should be able to configure their bank account with the wallet.”
  12. 12. How We Build The ACC Table Attributes The report shows results for the top three attributes of the app class, forming the app quality analysis: Top Three Attributes: Ease of use Speed Flexibility Components The following top four components were chosen for which the performance results are shown. Top Four Components: Add money Send money Receive money We used two parts of the ACC framework, Attributes & Components for the analysis. Users use each product and rate across elements of components and attributes set in the framework for each of the mobile wallets chosen for the report.

  16. 16. Components Analysis
  17. 17. App Quality Index While the Attributes and Components of the products represent their respective interfaces, a different measure is needed to compare the technical robustness of each product. We use an index called "App Quality Index" for comparing the technical robustness of each product. The "App Quality Index" contains proprietary algorithms and over the years has been proven to be an appropriate benchmark of comparison.
