Dear Testdroiders,

Mobile gaming (and game development) is booming, and that’s awesome! We’ve seen here at Testdroid how certain Android and iOS games have been developed from the scratch, tested, published, and how those games have quickly become highly popular among gamers. Nothing beats that feeling when you see all that happening, the process that eventually makes that game robust, bullet-proof and fantastic performing. Our Testdroid Cloud devices have been in essential role in that.

Best Practices in Mobile Game Testing
