Enterprise app consultancy introduces new tool to streamline the development and delivery of mobile apps


AppLauncher standardizes and automates the compilation, testing and deployment steps, allowing app developers to focus on writing innovative code.

Solstice Consulting, an enterprise mobile application strategy and development firm, announced today the launch of AppLauncher, new software that automates the build, testing and deployment of iOS, Android and HTML5 mobile apps.

More specifically AppLauncher:

  • Automatically deploys new app builds to test devices, app stores or your mobile device management platform
  • Automates code quality checking for mobile applications
  • Enables continuous builds for iOS, Android and HTML5 Apps

As companies have begun designing mobile apps specifically for their own customers and workforces, it has become clear that standard processes for building, testing and deploying test versions of applications are manual, time consuming and cumbersome. That fractured development cycle has also made quality control and project management difficult. AppLauncher standardizes and automates the compilation, testing and deployment steps, allowing app developers to focus on writing innovative code.

AppLauncher further centralizes the app build and deployment process by plugging into companies’ existing source control and mobile device management systems – as soon as a new build is finished, the company can beam it to all the test devices in the field.

“At Solstice, we run dozens of mobile projects at once, so we saw how difficult it was to deploy many apps for different clients, all with unique requirements. We designed AppLauncher to reduce the tedious, high-risk steps in the app development process,” said J Schwan, president and founder of Solstice Consulting. “With AppLauncher, your development team can focus on what you pay them for – creating new products, new features and better functionality.”

The AppLauncher “Viewing Deck” compiles metrics on the status of each app project. It then delivers that feedback through comprehensive dashboards that highlight an app’s overall technical “health,” showing specific code infractions. It also calculates the number of hours and dollars required to troubleshoot particular hang-ups. The software also automates app unit testing and integrates with external user interface testing tools.

AppLauncher is equipped with customizable code quality analysis for iOS, Android and HTML5 apps. These features reduce risk throughout an app’s deployment cycle by alerting project managers to systemic problems in the code.

Organizations can plug into the AppLauncher platform through the Cloud or as an on-premise installation.
