Perfecto Mobile Introduces an Integrated Mobile App Quality Platform for Visual Studio

Perfecto Mobile, provider of the MobileCloud™ Mobile App Quality Platform, today announced at the Microsoft Build Developer Conference, a public preview of the MobileCloud for Visual Studio Plugin that enables teams to successfully test their mobile apps on real devices, inside Microsoft’s Visual Studio. By extending Visual Studio with the MobileCloud™ Platform, development/test teams now have the ability to execute manual and automated tests on real mobile devices deployed around the world, directly from Visual Studio. Teams are able to use the familiar C# language and fully manage device automation control with Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS).

Today, the pursuit of delivering better mobile apps faster is driving development/test teams to test earlier and more frequently. This solution offers a significant jump start for .NET web teams transitioning to mobile, teams launching new responsive design projects, and teams scaling the mobile app development and testing processes. By utilizing the MobileCloud™ Platform, Visual Studio users can leverage existing expertise and write automation tests in C# that are executable across any mobile operating system (Android, iOS, Windows Phone) or app style (web, native, hybrid), all with a single test script. Users have instant and always-available access to globally distributed real devices to support testing throughout the code-build-test cycle.

“The pressure to accelerate both mobile app delivery and iterative bug fixes is driving organizations to adopt agile development. Too often, though, this need for speed compromises quality. Successful organizations are seeing the future and are investing in technology that enables testing on real devices, mobile-ready continuous integration and test automation,” said Eran Yaniv, CEO, Perfecto Mobile. “The new MobileCloud for Visual Studio solution provides always-available devices-as-a-service and mobile-ready automation directly from within Visual Studio. Combined, these two capabilities deliver cross-platform mobile app testing that is fully managed by TFS. The bottom line is that our enterprise customers have immediate access to better feedback, enabling their Visual Studio teams to meet the pressure for high-speed app delivery without compromising quality. The concept of ‘Shift testing left’ is now achievable.”

“Perfecto Mobile’s Mobile App Quality Platform is a valuable complement to Microsoft’s suite of mobile development, testing and ALM tools,” said Mitra Azizirad, General Manager, Developer Tools Marketing and Sales at Microsoft. “By providing extensive mobile test coverage with its globally distributed, mobile device cloud, MobileCloud™ for Visual Studio empowers development and test teams to deliver better mobile apps faster and meet customers’ quality expectations.”

Following are the different benefits available from the MobileCloud for the Visual Studio solution:

  • Accelerate Testing – Teams can execute unattended automated testing on remote iOS, Android and Windows Phone apps without requiring USB connections or driver downloads. System level control of devices under test enables full interoperability testing (e.g. call, text, change settings)
  • Get started fast – Teams can utilize their existing expertise in Visual Studio, C# and Selenium WebDriver and leverage an extended package of functions for common mobile testing tasks (install app, insert text/URL, device reboot).
  • Anytime Access to Real Devices Inside Visual Studio – Teams have direct access to a scalable, globally distributed, cloud-based mobile device platform.
  • Continuous Integration (CI) Ready – Teams can use CI with real devices to deliver better feedback faster. It enables developers to build, deploy and test on real off-the-shelf devices every build cycle, capturing results in TFS.

For a first look and demo of the Visual Studio Plugin, visit Perfecto Mobile at Microsoft Build Developer Conference today at Booth #311. For further details on Perfecto Mobile, visit www.perfectomobile.com or follow us on Twitter at @perfectomobile.
