Real Devices or Emulators: What to Use for Mobile App Testing

Posted Sep 16th, 2015

Webinar Date: Sep 16th, 2015

Testing of mobile devices has historically been a manual process. However, with more activity on mobile devices than on the desktop, mobile apps are starting to become the primary way people interact with your company. Manual testing is slowing the process so the move is on to automate tests and integrate them into your CI workflow so you can get updates out faster.

What is the best way to do that? How do you choose to test on emulators or real devices? How do you incorporate the best practices of Web testing into your mobile testing workflow?

Join analyst David Gehringer of Dimensional Research and Sauce Labs in a Webinar that covers their recent research into how QA and dev engineers choose to test across emulators and real devices. Also, we’ll show you a demo of the Sauce Labs Real Device Cloud and how you can implement best practices of testing on both emulators and real devices to optimize your time and money.

In this webinar you will:

  • Learn about the latest trends in automated and manual mobile testing
  • Learn how and why your peers decide to test on emulators and real devices
  • See a demo of how easy it is to test on real devices
