We are excited to announce that Bitbar Testing Cloud, the most scalable mobile app testing solution, is now available on Amazon Web Service (AWS) Marketplace. The simplified, automated and accelerated purchasing process for Bitbar Testing on AWS Marketplace enables faster time-to-value services for mobile Dev & Test teams to automate mobile tests at scale and accelerate the delivery of high quality mobile apps to end users.
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.
It’s almost 9am in Poland right now. Sun is shining thru cold (almost) winter wind. We are excited to roll out some great new features to welcome the holiday and new year. Well, let’s grab a cup of good coffee and check out what’s new in the latest two versions. Shall we?
Today’s guest is Tobias Doll, Test Automation Engineer in the Mobile Development Department of Deutsche Welle (DW). DW is a German public international broadcaster with goals to convey Germany as a “liberal, democratic state based on the rule of law”, to produce reliable news coverage and to provide access to the German language.
With rich experience in mobile QA, Tobias is excited to share some insights on how to explore the possibilities of Espresso and how to fully leverage the power of Gherkin with Espresso for Android test automation. If you want to move on from Calabash and look for a new way to handle your Android app testing, this article is for you. Read on.
When everything is firing on all cylinders, DevOps can be awesome. By automating every application build – from development and QA, to pre-release testing and eventually to production – DevOps lets you release new code as frequently as your business needs to instead of continuously delayed releases. This, in turn, enables you to resolve issues and make important improvements with lightning speed, keeping you agile and helping you meet customer needs (and expectations) as well as respond to new challenges in a competitive landscape.
Mobile shopping is booming year over year. According to Adobe’s forecast, it’s predicted to see more traffic from smartphones and tablets than from desktops for the first time in this holiday shopping season. Similarly, one study from YouAppi found that 85% of shoppers will use a mobile app for holiday shopping in 2017. It’s clear that mobile has become a key touchpoint in today’s customer journey.
Despite seeing the importance of mobile, the majority of retailers are still facing challenges to reap the solid returns from mobile channels in the coming holiday shopping season.
