A few months back we revealed our Global Real Device Network to the world: the testing solution that enables true remote testing on real devices within our globally distributed crowd of testers. With this blog post, I would like to take you back to the fundamentals of this unique solution, that combines the flexibility and scalability of crowdtesting, with the efficiency and convenience of cloud-based testing.

At Testbirds, we work hard to help our clients create the best possible software. We’re proud to have helped hundreds of companies and organisations optimise their apps, websites and other types of connected software. However, there’s still a lot to gain in the world of software development when it comes to testing. Through years of experience, there are several challenges that we’ve come to recognise in the market, and in this blogpost I’d love to share those with you. At the start of a new year, it’s good to be aware of the software challenges that might occur at your company.
On the 3rd of August, Georg Hansbauer, co-founder and managing director of Testbirds hosted an hour long webinar that explored the world of test automation. For those who were able to attend, we would like to thank you and we hope you left with a lot more insight and knowledge into automated testing solutions. In the webinar, a number of topics were discussed such as why and when test automation should be included, how to set up the automated testing process including a real world example and information on TestChameleon™. In today’s post, we’d like to briefly investigate some of the points that were brought up in the webinar:
Welcome to the first article of our new series “HR behind the scenes” where you get insights into our HR department. This time: Cocoon – Tinder for Recruiters. Ok, wait! It’s not what you think! It’s not recruiters looking to date recruiters and therefore invented an app to easily find each other. That would be a little bit too narcissistic. The app we tested, on the other hand, is for finding the right candidates using the same methodology as tinder. And here’s what we think about it:
Testing software, whether it’s apps, websites or other software, can always be challenging. There are so many factors that come into play when wanting to assure the quality of your digital products. What’s the best time in the development cycle to start testing? Is there a way to continuously test? How about receiving elaborate feedback from your end-users on usability issues, functionality issues, or both? And how does automated testing work?
In the last edition of the series What, How and Why?, we gave you a closer look at Card Sorting. It helps you find the right menu structure for your app or website. Card Sorting is possible at every stage of the development life cycle. This time we would like to take a step back and give you some insight on how you can get feedback on your whole product.
When it comes to innovations in technology, there are few industries as progressive and defining as the automotive industry. Attributed to a number of revolutionary societal developments such as the assembly line, the automotive sector is still creating groundbreaking technology that continues to astound the world and find application in all walks of life. This year, Testbirds had the pleasure to discover some of these new advancements in the automotive sector at Connected Cars ’16.
On Tuesday, Apple was once again holding its annual developer conference WWDC and presented its latest innovations. Two weeks ago, we reported on another tech giant’s developer event: Google I/O. In April, Facebook announced updates for its social network. All these events have one thing in common: that artificial intelligence in general and voice user interfaces in particular seem to be one of the major tech revolutions coming in the next few years.
Just a couple of hours to go until the most exciting football tournament of the year kicks off in Paris, France. All around the world sport enthusiasts are eagerly waiting for their heroes like Cristiano Ronaldo, Zlatan Ibrahimović, Paul Pogba, Sergio Ramos or Manuel Neuer to make their first moves on the holy pitch. But with 24 teams, 552 players and 51 games in just 4 weeks it is quite easy to lose track.
Over the last couple of weeks our Crowd tested and compared a bunch of apps that are supposed to help football fans keep an overview on the results, upcoming matches as well as statistics. They also have been looking for helpful background information about the teams and the latest news of the event. In this blog post we want to present you with the two international apps that our testers liked the most when it came to usability and functionality. So if you are still looking for a good app for the upcoming weeks of football, it might be worth checking these two out.
