MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – June 13, 2012 – SOASTA, the leader in cloud and mobile testing, today announced support for Appcelerator’s Titanium 2.0 platform. CloudTest Mobile now provides reliable test automation to the 300,000 mobile developers using the Appcelerator platform giving them complete visibility into the functionality of their mobile applications throughout the entire application development lifecycle.
CoudTest Mobile supports all the UI components in Titanium 2.0, giving Appcelerator developers the ability to run automated functional tests in all stages of the development process, ensuring accurate and reliable results. While most other solutions require manual testing, CloudTest Mobile automates testing for precise capture and playback of all gestures including pan, pinch, zoom and scroll on iPhones, iPads or iPods.
“Our goal is to help the developer community release mobile apps that are fail safe and do it as quickly as possible,” said Tom Lounibos, SOASTA CEO. “This community is developing innovative mobile apps at Mach speed, and manual testing can’t keep up with the rapid development cycles. Now with CloudTest Mobile, they can run automated tests throughout the development lifecycle so they fix issues immediately and release sooner. We are very excited to join forces with Appcelerator to help accelerate our joint customers development efforts with precise and affordable test automation.”
CloudTest Mobile delivers affordable, accurate, and complete mobile app testing using real mobile devices. Traditional testing solutions have employed device emulators and optical recognition approaches that are not precise enough to test this generation of mobile apps. CloudTest Mobile captures the start and end points of each gesture, the journey between, and the speed with which the gesture is performed. It uniquely conducts testing from within the mobile app, replacing brittle optical recognition approaches and enabling validations based on variable values and internal app state changes. Distributed mobile devices are accessed over the air, eliminating the need for tethering or “jail breaking” and allowing mobile devices – anywhere – to be used in a test.
“Appcelerator and SOASTA share a passion for enabling rapid, scalable development, and testing of mobile apps that are changing the world,” said Nolan Wright, CTO and Co-founder of Appcelerator. “We use CloudTest Mobile to test the Appcelerator Titanium Platform internally and we are excited to have this same capability available to the entire Titanium developer community. This powerful solution, with precise capture and playback of all multi-touch gestures, allows our 300,000 mobile developers to accelerate their application development efforts with reliable and affordable test automation capabilities.”
