uTest offers mobile applications developers professional quality assurance services via its global community of professional testers. uTest provides mobile application developers with comprehensive testing coverage based on location, language, handset manufacturer, wireless carrier, operating system and more.
uTest, which provides a "software testing marketplace, is capitalizing
on the growing mobile applications market by providing developers with professional
QA services via its global community of professional testers," the company
said March 6.
uTest has expanded its global application testing capabilities to the mobile
sector, where development is fragmented into different environments for the
various devices and mobile phone platforms. The company has access to more than
14,000 professional testers from 150 countries, it said in a news release.
The newly announced mobile application testing capability "enables
mobile application developers to get comprehensive testing coverage based on
location, language, handset manufacturer, wireless carrier, operating system
and more," the company said, adding that its "global testing coverage
has made uTest an ideal option for mobile developers looking to bring higher-quality
applications to market faster."
For instance, 1Cast, a broadcast platform that "delivers
up-to-the-minute news video on the desktop and smartphone platforms such as the
iPhone and Android, has been working with uTest for the past few months and has
already seen the benefits of using a crowdsourced QA team," uTest
officials said. uTest helped 1Cast deliver its latest smartphone application on
schedule and within budget.
"uTest has helped 1Cast move through the development and testing cycle
efficiently and gain a competitive edge by accelerating our product's time to
market with a thoroughly tested application," Travis McElfresh, 1Cast's vice
president of technology, said in a statement. "uTest has proven to be a
very cost-effective option for our testing and QA needs."
For developers in the mobile space with such varied platforms as iPhones,
Android devices and BlackBerry smartphones to create applications for, it can
get both expensive and time-consuming for companies to do QA and testing.
However, the company said, "uTest enables companies to launch higher -quality
products; get their desktop, Web and mobile applications to market faster; and
control the cost of testing. Customers specify their QA requirements for tester
experience, location, language, OS and browser, and uTest selects the right testers
for each project."
"The mobile application space is incredibly dynamic-it's growing
exponentially in popularity and level of competition," said uTest CEO
and co-founder Doron Reuveni. "Yet, many of the standards that exist in Web
development don't yet exist in mobile. The number of testing permutations
across handset makers, carriers, operating systems, browsers and locations is
mind-boggling. uTest works closely with these companies to help them bring
their mobile apps to market faster and bug-free."
