Rainforest QA Mobile App Testing Launched
June 14, 2017

Rainforest QA announced general availability of Rainforest QA Mobile App Testing.

Rainforest Mobile is a mobile testing platform offering on-demand crowdtesting that combines both virtual machines (VMs) and real devices, resulting in unparalleled testing speed and accuracy.

Built on Rainforest QA's crowdsourcing and AI platform, the solution is faster, less expensive and delivers more reproducible results than any other mobile testing solution, all without requiring engineering resources to set up or manage.

"Traditional mobile testing solutions that rely on testers using their personal devices take days or weeks to return results, and those results are often hard to reproduce," said Russell Smith, CTO and co-founder for Rainforest QA. "Only Rainforest QA's platform approach, which blends virtual machines and real devices — while running AI underneath to verify results can provide fully on-demand, comprehensive, highly-reproducible testing completed within hours each and every time."

Key benefits of the new solution include:

- Speed: Typical testing services return results after several days or weeks. With Rainforest Mobile, customers get fast, scalable mobile test results in less than 30 minutes for VMs, and within hours for real devices — both enabled by the Rainforest AI-powered crowdtesting platfoorm.

- Reduced cost: Rainforest Mobile combines virtual machine testing alongside real device testing, to reduce cost and take the burden on customers to manage hundreds of devices and mobile operating system versions.

- Consistency: Real world device testing can waste time and resources, especially because bugs are hard to reproduce without the original device — and its respective state — due to the number of confounding variables across personal devices. Rainforest Mobile delivers consistent, repeatable states across each testing configuration required.

Rainforest Mobile is now available to all customers, following an extended beta test period.
