The Basics Of Test Automation For Apps, Games And The Mobile Web
Mobile application ecosystems — let’s count Android and iOS here — are unbelievably dynamic, but they also suffer from both software and hardware fragmentation. This is especially true for Android, but fragmentation also exists in the iOS ecosystem, as experienced with the rollout of iOS 8. As the latest version of iOS was released, many existing apps were made clumsy on updated devices.
Android is more fragmented than ever. Should developers or users worry?
Both Testdroid and OpenSignal found huge numbers of variations in screens. “The smaller the screen resolution the device contains, the more likely it fails with apps or games,” noted Testdroid. It also found that dual-core devices were more stable than quad-core – even though the latter are often touted for the extra speed they might deliver.

Testdroid allows Remote Manual Access to any Android device
Android developers need all the help they can to make their apps better. Testing on local phones may be enough but one can’t avoid bugs and errors to appear on different devices. The key is to test any app project on many units as much as possible to see the issues that may occur.
Testdroid Tweaks Its Pricing Plans For Testdroid Cloud, Now Offers Monthly Subscription Plans Starting At $499
We’ve talked about Testdroid a few times here at AP. There’s a good reason for that: it simplifies developers’ lives and essentially automates the testing process by running their application or game on over 280 real Android devices (so it’s not a virtualized environment). While the service itself aims to make devs’ lives easier, Testdroid realized that the pay-as-you-go payment option simply wasn’t working for most users. Why? Because problems happen. Paying by the hour for application testing isn’t the most economical way of doing things, because if something goes awry, the developer ends up paying more than the originally quoted price to test and re-test. That’s never a good thing.
