Droidcon UK 2013: Magical App Testing by TestFairy

The first day of Droidcon UK 2013 was filled with barcamps. One of those barcamps was Magical App Testing by TestFairy. At first I was sceptical. Magical app testing doesn’t exist. Or does it?

TestFairy is an online service to test your apps. You upload the apk you want to have tested; you invite your testers and you can review the results of the tests. Not really spectacular, yet.

One part of your test results is a video of what your tester did during the test. That is really awesome. Log entries that were printed during the test are actually synchronised with the video. So when you see an error in the video, you know exactly where to look. Too see an example of the test results, please see the demo page on the TestFairy website.


For now, the service is free. There will be enterprise solutions in the near future though. But the basic features stay free, is what they currently say.
