Mobile continuous testing tools have been announced by Perfecto's new platform update.

Perfecto has announced two new capabilities for mobile app developers to accelerate velocity as they take on greater responsibility for app quality. Perfecto’s Continuous Quality Lab for web, mobile, and IoT testing now supports both Google’s Espresso and Apple’s XCUITest test frameworks. Developing test automation directly within the code base supports testing every commit to provide fast feedback. In addition, to accelerate troubleshooting, Perfecto’s DigitalZoomTM reporting now delivers HTTP archive (HAR) reports enabling earlier network analysis to detect potential app performance issues.

The drive for delivering innovative digital engagement methods is pushing teams to shorten development cycles and test earlier. Many teams are implementing continuous testing to maximize the benefits of continuous integration (CI). This move to continuous testing is prompting adoption of test frameworks that naturally fit within the coding process. Perfecto’s expanded support works directly within mobile developers’ environments, providing fast, reliable feedback. Network analysis via Perfecto’s HAR support identifies defects early and enables developers to accelerate troubleshooting.

Mobile DevOps teams must continuously test every build to reliably accelerate development velocity,” said Roi Carmel, Chief Strategy Officer at Perfecto. “With the addition of these capabilities, Perfecto is empowering mobile DevOps teams to take on greater responsibility for quality. The result is high app quality and flawless end-user experience.”

“Perfecto’s support for whitebox testing frameworks is a critical component for quickly closing the feedback loop between committing code changes and ensuring new features work,” said Brad Hart VP Product Management at Perfecto. “As dev teams strive to maintain an ‘always green’ status, testing every commit is critical and tests must deliver reliable results quickly. Espresso and XCUITest are strong enablers to achieve this outcome.”
