Appurify Launches Public Beta of Mobile Test Automation Platform

Company announces product collaborations with Sencha and Adobe PhoneGap, releases free SDK for mobile developers to streamline test creation and debugging

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Appurify, the pioneer in mobile test automation on real devices, today announced the public beta of its platform for testing, run-time debugging and performance optimization of mobile applications. The launch comes after several months of private beta testing with some of the world's largest technology companies and independent developers, and just as mobile teams look for more efficient ways to test and optimize their apps for iOS 7 and new Apple phones, which are also supported by the Appurify platform.

In conjunction with today's news, the company also announced product collaborations with two of the leading mobile application development platforms, alongside a free SDK for the iOS development community.

Appurify, which announced its Series-A funding in May, is leading the movement toward automation and performance optimization for mobile apps. ABI Research predicts the mobile testing market in the coming years will be predominately driven by the adoption of automation. Further, in an analysis of critical 1-star reviews among top free applications in the Apple App Store, Appurify found that more than half of user complaints were tied to performance issues.

With mobile development maturing and performance issues top of mind, Appurify is well-positioned to serve mobile teams eager to move away from manual testing and ensure their apps perform as expected in the real world.

The Appurify Public Beta
Starting today, Appurify's platform is available to mobile developers both through its web application and via API.

Key features:

  • Automation on Real Devices: Using Appurify, which houses the world's largest API-accessible mobile device farm in the world, developers can see exactly how their apps will perform across different carriers, signal strengths, operating systems, memory levels, locations and device orientations;
  • Device and Operating System Combinations: Appurify offers full support for Apple devices and operating systems—including iOS 7, iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c—and a wide range of Android devices;
  • Actionable Test Reports: Track trends over time and pinpoint specific issues with apps. Output includes network capture details, crash reports, frames per second (FPS), CPU/memory data and video;
  • Integration With Existing Automation Test Suites: Includes UIAutomation, KIF, UIAutomator, OCUnit, Robotium, Calabash and other popular frameworks;
  • Functional Stress Testing: Run stress tests against apps to uncover bugs and other issues using the Appurify Robot;
  • Works With Continuous Integration Systems: Hook Appurify into CI systems such as Jenkins to run automated tests continuously.

Custom solutions, such as on-premise device deployments and testing in multi-app or multi-device environments, are available for enterprise customers. All plans include free trials.  

"We founded Appurify a year and a half ago with the goal of putting mobile developer tools on par with what's available with the web world," said Manish Lachwani, co-founder and CTO at Appurify. "Since then, we've built a platform that addresses the complex process of testing and debugging apps across devices, operating systems and various user conditions alongside the largest API-accessible device cloud. Think EC2 for mobile. Our launch today is an important step in our journey to help mobile developers build better, faster apps."
