Keynote Systems has announced the launch its MITE 2 (Mobile Internet Testing Environment) tool for automated application testing and verification of mobile content. Mobile content developers can use this tool to test and verify mobile web content using a built-in library of 1,800 devices and 11,000 device profiles for reference.
Carl Howe, research director for Yankee Group said, “As those consumers have become a large part of a company's Internet strategy, businesses must now test how well their mobile websites deliver on their web designs."
In addition to offering on-demand access to a wide variety of mobile devices, Keynote says that MITE offers many other features and functionality that allows mobile content developers and QA professionals to quickly see how well websites, content, and applications perform from an end-user's perspective. MITE includes:
- An embedded WebKit browser engine used by all leading smartphone manufacturers. This lets testers interact with any mobile website and get the most accurate end user perspective.
- Access to the latest smartphone device profiles, such as Apple iPhone 4, Android Droid Incredible, Nokia N8, and BlackBerry Torch.
- Point-and-click scripting capabilities to automate mobile content testing. Mobile content developers can record a single test script on one device and then run it across any number of selected devices.
- An intuitive grading system that helps developers verify that a mobile website is optimized for a given device by providing both a score and actionable recommendations to improve the quality, performance and compliance of the website with W3C’s mobile best practices.
