Testdroid to play at Developer Sandbox during Google I/O 2012

May 15th, 2012 by Bitbar
Woot! The Testdroid team just received an invitation from Google Android Developer Advocates team to play at the Developer Sandbox at this year’s Google I/O conference.
We have developed Testdroid based purely on standard Android frameworks omitting all proprietary stuff, really in the spirit of openness of Android platform itself!
And we will be announcing something totally new at the event too.
Google I/O is the kind of event that you really want to participate, chat with all the other developers and show your stuff to people. We heartily thank the Google’s team for inviting us!

So, if you’re coming to I/O 2012 in June, you’ll have a chance to talk to Testdroid developers about Android apps testing, continuous integration, and, well, Android.

Instagram in Testdroid Cloud

We will be writing a short series of blog posts on using Testdroid tools, Recorder and Cloud for testing your applications behaviour on all the different devices automatically and after every change. In theses posts we show, how to use Recorder to record your clicks and drags on your device and how to create good set of testcases. You don’t have to create everything from empty class. After that, you can simply run the tests in Cloud and check how your application looks on different resolutions, UI themes, APIs or hardware platforms.

We at Bitbar have done a lot of work so that every Android developer could worry less about Android fragmentation. By automating your Android testing with Testdroid tools you can get the needed device coverage – and it is easier than ever!

Out of memory exception when changing Activity or creating Bitmap object in Android

One of the most common causes of fragmentation is limited hardware specs, whether it’s small RAM, slow processor or low resolution screen, they all create a challenging environment for Android application developers aiming for ultimate device compatibility. A lot of Android developers face memory issues on low costs devices and this is how it usually goes: You created a bitmap and your application throws an OutOfMemory exception but there is still a lot of free memory and you are left wondering: What is the source of problem? How to limit this? Let me explain.

Happy New Year and highlights of 2011

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.
