Sauce Labs has expanded its Appium on Sauce mobile application test cloud, making it generally available and adding support for the Android OS.
The company bases its technology on the open source mobile testing framework Appium. So then, Sauce Labs' Appium on Sauce is a cloud-based, testing platform that automates cross-browser testing for native iOS apps, mobile web hybrid apps, and now native Android apps.
"Appium on Sauce solves a big problem at a critical time. Companies are relying more and more on their mobile channels where they have just seconds to prove their worth with a positive user experience and a lot of mobile apps aren't thoroughly tested, if they're tested at all," says Adam Christian, vice president of development at Sauce Labs. "Automated testing in a virtual environment represents the future, and we're providing it for the mobile ecosystem."
Sauce Labs offers a cloud of mobile platforms and desktop browsers for automated and manual testing of web and mobile apps. The company's software-as-a-service (SaaS) application is used to run approximately five million tests each month.
