Perfecto, the test automation specialist that is a unit of Minneapolis-based Perforce Software, has made Android emulators and iOS simulators available on its Intelligent Test Automation platform.
“By strategically testing on virtual devices, organizations give developers faster feedback, so they can catch and fix issues quickly without interrupting their workflows,” said Eran Kinsbruner, DevOps evangelist at Perforce. “Virtual devices complement real device testing later in the cycle to deliver a powerful, comprehensive combination for getting feedback quickly without compromising application quality.”
With the new iOS simulators and Android emulators, mobile app developers and testers can perform manual and Appium-based test automation in parallel, in the cloud, and across different geographies, Perfecto said. Teams testing on virtual devices within Perfecto have the same access to the platform’s AI-driven reporting and analytics, which reduce the noise created by false positives, detect root causes, and provide a single place for managers, QA, and developers to align on all quality metrics, the company added.
