We used to test manually. This meant there were never enough devices or chargers at hand. Now, we can test every smartphone and tablet, not just those that lie around the office.

Resco, a developer of cross-platform mobile software solutions, started to test its applications on Xamarin Test Cloud, a cloud-based service that provides automated testing of mobile applications.
App users are rarely forgiving when it comes to app crashes. Once an app malfunctions, users are quick to abandon it. So app testing proves to be very influential when it comes to the overall success of an app.
Mobile developers have been trying out a variety of testing methods, but manual testing still remains the norm. This is not ideal. Not only is it time consuming and labor intensive; the results are often just a fragment of all possible outcomes.
This is the struggle Xamarin Test Cloud aims to eliminate. Test Cloud automates everything a user can do, and also detects visual and performance issues. Tests are run on hundreds of devices, each representing a different combination of screen resolution and platform version.
Xamarin Test Cloud provides a faster and more accurate way of testing, and ensures the app works properly on every device imagined. And as their website suggests, it allows developers to find the bugs, before the users do.
“We know through our work with over 700,000 developers that ensuring that mobile apps look, behave and perform well across a wide variety of devices in a BYOD world is a huge challenge. I am very happy that Xamarin Test Cloud solves this problem for Resco.”
– Stephanie Schatz, VP of Sales and Customer Success, Xamarin –
Resco jumped on the automated testing wagon with Xamarin Test Cloud as soon as it could. Its developers and testers can now sit back and wait for the tests results. The UI tests run during the night and the report is waiting in the mailbox the following morning.

Resco’s success depends upon delivering impeccable applications that people enjoy using. Xamarin Test Cloud is a key part of their ability to do this.
