Greetings and Happy New Year 2012!

On the behalf of everyone here at Bitbar, allow me to thank each of you for  participating in the Testdroid story this past year—and take a moment to share some of the highlights.

Year 2011 was a huge success for Android, becoming the #1 smartphone platform in the world, and year 2012 will undoubtedly be even better for the entire community. More than 700 000 Android devices are activated every day,
more people use now mobile apps than mobile browser, for the first time ever and Android Market just recently reached 400 000 applications.
Demand for great apps and mobile services is enormous, and we are here to help everyone to launch the best Android apps & services around.
We at Bitbar have expanded our product offering during last year from Testdroid Recorder and Testdroid Server to Testdroid Cloud. We will continue to deliver our vision for making software testing as fast and easy as possible.

2011 Highlights

  • Testdroid Cloud service with real Android devices was launched about 6 weeks ago and our user base has grown dramatically.
  • In only 6 weeks we passed the 20,000 completed tests mark on Testdroid Cloud.
  • We also saw over 1,000 different customers using our products, including most of the leading technology companies and start-ups around the world.
  • We have rapidly increased the number of Android devices in our device cloud and are adding new devices every day.
  • Our current range of devices cover over 90% of the Android user base.
Testing application functionality and device compatibility is important, and for that our new features like screen shots baseline is a must practice. The differences between target devices are obvious, making automated compatibility testing relevant for every application development organization to see how their app behaves on real target devices. Only high quality apps generate significant user base.
Most apps nowadays have back-end services, which evolve all the time. Regression testing of the the entire service chain is even more important for perfect user experience.
On Testdroid Cloud You can set-up for example 100 different Android devices automatically to access and load test your service, just like mobile end users would use it. And you can do it after every code check in, after every change in the code in the Android app or on the server side. Testing all that manually is impossible. And not fun at all. Just automate it!Testdroid Cloud will still be free of charge in the beta, so keep testing your apps on real devices.
