Electric Cloud has announced the commercial availability of Ship.io, a cloud-based continuous delivery platform for mobile app delivery. Ship.io brings the cloud to mobile app continuous delivery by automating the build, test and deployment processes of native iOS and Android apps.
Ship.io provides end-to-end visibility into the app delivery lifecycle through a SaaS delivery model offered through free and paid SaaS subscription options. The cloud-based platform supports each new version of iOS or Android, along with native integrations to services in the mobile development tool chain.
Ship.io automatically detects and configures native Android and iOS projects to allow teams to build apps across supported OS, version and device screen types. Ship.io supports the latest tool chains, languages and OS releases, including GitHub, Gradle, Xcode6.3, Swift, iOS 8, Crashlytics Beta, HockeyApp, as well as Slack, HipChat and various web hook integrations.
It connects existing tool chains to simplify and automate unit, functional and physical device testing (using AppThwack for iOSdevices), and allows teams to run tests every time code is committed for fast feedback. Centralized dashboards provide visibility into all build, test and deployment status levels, and supports cross-team collaboration and historical reporting.
Aspects of the new release include:
- Seamless integration from code check-in to app distribution including real device tests
- Latest version support for iOS and Android
