Everyone would have different interpretations of what leads to high customer retention and high app ratings depending on the contexts. In the field of mobile app testing, the key to the optimum is really about maximizing your device coverage and ensuring your app testing cover the majority of popular devices that your customers use. And that is also one of the biggest benefits that you can reap from mobile device cloud vendors.
Last weekend we luckily had in Wrocław +12°C, but the temperature dropped drastically and we had the heaviest snow this winter. I thought “Well, that was like a beta version of incoming spring”. But don’t worry – we are not such cruel. We have a new beta feature for you and we will not take it from you at all 🙂
With the release of new devices and OS versions in Q4/2017, there have been some significant changes in the most popular devices around the globe. As always measured quarterly, we’d like to share a list of must-test devices against which you must ensure the app compatibility for the major markets.
When looking at the weather outside, you just want to say “winter is here” instead of “winter is coming”. But looking at the fact that I wanted to say “2.53 is here” … it might sound quite “cold”😅. And I assure you that the new version straight from the oven will warm you up!
Over a year back, we rebranded Testdroid and introduced Bitbar Cloud (bitbar.com), transforming from a mobile test automation solution to a unified mobile DevOps platform and making Testdroid step back as a critical technology and driver of continuous testing for our customers.
Today, we are excited to announce that our cloud portal is now accessible with a new domain cloud.bitbar.com. All the products, services, etc that you are using every day will stay as they are with no changes.
Last time I have mentioned New Year resolutions. To be honest… I hate them. “I will do that”, “I will not do this” and “This Year I will…”. And in the end of year you feel like a person with empty promises. That is why we do not make such ones. Instead, we work hard to provide our customers with the best product. Speaking of which …
Today many mobile teams almost always work with testing, staging and integration environments residing inside the company network. These environments are not exposed to the Internet, which sometimes makes it difficult to use any of popular cloud-based testing solutions and services from the information security point of view.
Ah! New Year! New hopes, resolutions and expectations. All gyms crammed and in the newspapers (as always at this time) a lot of articles like “how to lose weight in a week” and “the sculpture you always dreamed about.” Our first Cloud update, released yesterday, also brings you a lot of sweets! But do not worry – all our goodies have 0 calories! 🤤
2017 was another exciting year for Bitbar. We introduced powerful new features and teamed up with new partners to strengthen our mobile DevOps platform. ‘Speed’ is the single word to be used to wrap up the achievements for the year. We want to take this opportunity to have an annual review.
At Bitbar, we truly believe that test automation scales up the mobile device testing efficiency and helps teams to maximize device coverage and improve confidence when it comes to keeping up your app release frequency. But it doesn’t really negate the need for manual testing, as it is a good way to reproduce real-world scenarios and troubleshoot special issues on specific devices.
By understanding our users’ use cases for manual testing, we decided to revamp the remote device control service and now we are excited to introduce a more powerful service for Android and iOS manual testing at Bitbar Cloud.
