TestFairy launches its mobile beta testing platform on Apple’s (NASDAQ:APPL) iOS platform. The company’s Android testing solution has been a major success. Currently, the app has left the beta stages with the announcement of iOS support. TestFairy has been used by over 10,000 developers including big names, such as FlipBoard and Autodesk.
Developer demand pushed the company to open its platform up to iOS users after TestFlight, a similar testing platform, announced that it would shut down on February 26, 2015. The app was removed off of iOS following the announcement.
TestFairy is a self-funded operation that has been working on their iOS platform for the past 6 months. Apple’s lack of support for older operating system users, such as those running iOS7, has forced developers to testing platforms, such as TestFairy. Currently, iOS7 accounts for 27% of all iOS devices.
Yair-Bar-On, the CEO of TestFairy, announced that the platform will be released on February 9, 2015. Functionality demonstrates what occurs during a test. Testing depicts memory and CPU usage, battery usage, crash reports and logging to provide developers with an inside look at the way their app functions. The company’s goal is to improve product quality while allowing developers to deliver faster, more robust applications.
TestFairy is said to be in negotiations with strategic partnerships to help their platform excel even further.
The company, founded in 2013, is looking to finalize its fundraising process due to unprecedented growth during the past year. Basic, Startup and Enterprise solutions are available to developers through the TestFairy website.
App developers looking for a new testing platform can easily migrate from the TestFlight app to TestFairy. The company has posted a blog post to make the transition as easy and fast as possible for new users.
TestFairy’s testing solution is now available for download on iOS and Android.
