Los Angeles, CA - July 18, 2023 - Product Science, a deep tech start-up specializing in mobile app development, announces the launch of its latest feature, the "Delay Indicator." This innovative tool is designed to empower mobile app developers by quickly identifying performance issues and optimizing app efficiency.

The "Delay Indicator" feature revolutionizes the way developers analyze performance problems in their mobile applications. By highlighting delays within execution paths, developers can now pinpoint and prioritize issues, leading to improved user experiences. With just a single click, developers can leverage this powerful feature and streamline their performance analysis process.

Here's how the "Delay Indicator" feature works:

  • Video preview: Using our video-trace synchronization feature, locate the moment in the video where the UI change happened (screen rendered)
  • Automatic path identification: Simply select the slice that represents the code and PS Tool will automatically display the execution path while highlighting delays between functions.
  • Focus on urgent issues: Via identifying the largest delays, developers can promptly address the most critical performance issues.

Real-life examples demonstrate the significant impact of the "Delay Indicator" feature.

Client: the leading platform for buying & selling equity shares in collectible assets

User flow: confirm investment

The highlighted area in red shows that when confirming an investment, a loader is displayed but the confirmation fails. This leads to the request being executed again, causing additional waiting time for users. The delay indicator highlights the main delay in the user's flow when the network request fails. This example shows that the delay indicator will also locate other individual delays within the same execution path. 

Client: banking alternative app for personalized money management and spend tracking

User flow: view company details

The red highlighted areas represent two network requests that fetch information for the stock price chart. The first red section fetches data for the line chart, and the second red section fetches data for the candle chart. The UI does not update to show the chart until both sets of data have been fetched, and only the line chart is visible unless the user changes the view. The red area, specifically the second section, indicates additional waiting time for users because the chart waits to update until all data has been fetched, instead of showing the line chart after the first request. With the delay indicator, developers are free from finding where the delay is and are allowed to be laser focus on unveiling the problem and identifying relevant solutions.

Client: American image-sharing and social media service

User flow: app start

The red highlighted area represents a delay that users may experience due to suboptimal content loading prioritization. This occurs because image loaders are busy loading images that aren't visible on the screen. With the PS Tool delay indicator highlighting the specific area where the delay occurs, it allows a more focused analysis of the problem rather than having to go over the entire execution path.

Product Science is committed to empowering app developers to optimize mobile performance seamlessly and efficiently. The "Delay Indicator" feature is just one of many innovative tools offered by the company.
