    Xamarin is a cross-platform mobile application development platform that allows developers to build native apps for Android, iOS and Windows using a single code base written in C#. Xamarin eschews the write-once-and-run-anywhere maxim in the true sense. With Xamarin, your app will function optimally across devices with the semblance of a native app.

     

    But a developer’s job is not really done until everything is tested thoroughly and runs flawlessly. Testing takes up a large chunk of build time to ensure apps deliver impeccably on a wide variety of devices. They need to assess the app’s usage and user interaction effectively. Xamarin Test Cloud allows you to find bugs with automated tests running on the devices that your customers use. Using minimum of testing effort and time, the cloud can analyze the application’s look, feel, functionality and performance across the devices. Here are a few reasons why you should consider Xamarin Test Cloud:

     

    1. Test your app on more than 2k devices:

    Xamarin Test Cloud supports around 2400+ devices and they add more than 100 devices every month to their repository. You can test your app using this huge collection of real devices from around the world. It allows to choose the devices based on form factor, OS, manufacturer as well the popularity in the target market. Since they add about 100 devices to this list every month, you can also send in requests for a particular device.

     

    2. Flexibility to test native or hybrid apps:

    Although the Test Cloud has been developed by Xamarin, there is no limitation on the type of applications it tests. You can test both native and hybrid apps and get the exact same benefits.

     

    3. Choose from two frameworks:

    Write automated tests using either Xamarin.UITest or Calabash. Each framework runs smoothly on the application’s user interface, and tests its behavior accurately. Experienced QAs can use Xamarin.UITest to write tests in C#, also taking advantage of a popular testing library like NUnit. Alternatively, testers can use Calabash to write tests based on behavior-driven development methodology. It provides the device cloud & the automation framework which leads to perfect integration and continuous improvements. The Test Cloud now also supports the Appium framework.

     

    4. Perfect testing simulation:

    There are many aspects of user testing and various ways in which users interact and handle a mobile device. An app needs to be tested in various environments as well. Test Cloud allows performing various gesture tests like tap, doubletap, swipe, rotate, pan, long press, and pinch or building custom gestures for advanced interactions. Users can also query UI elements, app models and backend servers. Additionally, it can change GPS location, press physical buttons, activate camera app, rotate the device to switch between landscape and portrait views. Users can also use the cloud-based service for testing the app under a variety of network conditions such as, 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi and no network.

     

    5. Detailed reporting and analytics:

    Monitoring app performance would be incomplete if there was no way to generate reports. In testing there is often a need for detailed and accurate test results which are related to the app’s release cycle and promotions. Xamarin Test Cloud has simplified the creation of these reports. You can even generate reports for individual tests. Reports are comprehensive and provide information on test duration, CPU access, memory consumption and other performance data.

     

    With Xamarin Test Cloud, you can stress-test your app with many permutations and combinations and ship apps that work flawlessly. So, if you are looking for a cross-platform mobile solution then you can opt for Xamarin developers. Have you used the Test Cloud? Please let us know by using the comments section below.
