The challenge: App distribution without using the app store
To convince users to choose your mobile applications, it’s necessary to perform extensive functionality and usability tests prior to release. In order to execute these tests, the beta-apps need to first be accessible. However, in official app stores hosted by Apple, Google, etc. incomplete applications are not allowed. Now, you can share your apps with team members or testers in a simple manner using BirdFlight™.
The solution: Easy and free app distribution with BirdFlight™
When using a structured bug testing approach, there are two options that can be used depending on your requirements: manual and automated testing. The first consists of a crowd that works through specific and detailed test cases. Almost every click they perform is planned and the focus is on the documentation of every action the testers take.
Automated testing takes place in the cloud and requires specific testing scripts, which can be created using Selenium, Appium or HP QTP. The test is carried out with the help of virtual machines that are able to virtualise all combinations of operating systems, browsers, add-ons and custom software. Test automation is especially useful when a test needs to be performed on multiple browsers and devices and when it needs to be regularly repeated.
