The acceptance of mobile applications that support services, such as navigation guidance or travel management, is highly dependent on the set of features implemented and the application quality. Information about the acceptance can be gained quickly by collecting user feedback like explicit textual reviews given by the application users or their implicitly given usage data. Considering an approach that bases on developing a minimal set of functions in order to realize a minimal viable product (MVP), it is possible to place a product with a short time to market. In this paper the Opti4Apps approach is presented. It aims at a focused quality assurance as part of the MVP development, which enables and expands the benefits of MVP by providing a semi-automated feedback elicitation, analysis and processing framework. The Opti4Apps process adjusts to mobile development habits including an additional automated feedback and usage data processing infrastructure.
