The fractured state of the Android platform can make it difficult to manage app development. Testing can be a bear but cloud-based services are providing new ways for developers to quickly see how their apps look on any type of device.
In its presentation at PIE Demo Day in Portland on Friday, AppThwack’s Trent Peterson said the remedy comes in automating the testing. Through its cloud-based platform, developers can get answers in minutes to how their apps behave on all the various devices and version of the Android OS that people use. AppThwack runs a lab that tests every device that runs Android. They use that lab as the foundation for its service.
