Studying the software quality of COVID-related mobile apps


Marielle Stoelinga and Ivano Malavolta are collaborating on a study about the software quality of COVID-related mobile apps. The idea is to run multiple analyses targeting a large number of COVID-related Android apps in order to characterize if their level of quality is different from that of standard apps published in the Google Play store. This will inform the public and decision makers about how app developers react when subject to huge pressure to deliver and under the unique conditions due to COVID-19.       

Technically, the collaboration will make use of open-source products, like SonarQube and Ivano's COVID apps observer.
