“Since we adopted the Kobiton platform, things in general have gotten way smoother. it’s just been nice to have it always accessible.”Mason Dula QA Engineer
Challenging device availablity for Developer IDEs
Physical Device Sharing
Limited access to certain device types or operating systems at the right time poses challenges for developers.
IDE Device Access Complexity
Requiring direct device access from a specific Integrated Development Environment (IDE) adds complexity to the workflow.
Emulators and Simulators Miss Bugs
Identifying and resolving software bugs after development stages can lead to costly delays and compromises in product quality.
Streamline Early Testing
Shift Left on Real Devices
By replacing emulators or simulators with real devices, you can “shift left” in your development process, identifying errors earlier in the cycle, reducing the likelihood of issues reaching the QA stage.
Understand Metrics Earlier
Virtual access to real devices supports a blend of live and automated testing, while offering vital metrics like CPU usage and network performance for efficient app optimization earlier in the SDLC.
Debug More before QA
A virtualized USB connection enables remote debugging for both iOS and Android devices, allowing developers to troubleshoot and fine-tune their applications without the need for physical proximity to the device.
Eliminate Device Management Complexity
The ability to access cloud or local devices directly from the developer workstation eliminates physical device sharing. This ensures that developers have easy access to a variety of devices, aiding in comprehensive testing and early debugging.
Mobile Dev Tools: Efficiency & Customization
Unlock simultaneous device testing, custom CI/CD, ADB debugging, local automation, and anywhere access for optimized mobile development.
Enable simultaneous device testing, boosting efficiency beyond the traditional 1:1 approach.
Seamlessly integrate into customized pipelines to ensure a smoother workflow and optimized mobile development processes.
Go beyond Appium’s limits with customized interactions using Android Device Bridge (ADB) for more tailored testing scenarios.
Test locally using Expresso or XCUITest.
Easily access cloud or local devices directly from your workstation, streamlining your mobile testing infrastructure.
Diagnose issues and errors efficiently with access to device logs and debugging tools during testing.
Shifting Left with Virtualized USB Connectivity
Embrace the transformative power of shifting left in real device testing. By replacing emulators and simulators with real devices, you can now identify and address errors earlier in the development cycle, ensuring faster releases and lower costs. It’s as if the device is right at your fingertips, accessible in your IDE.
Enhance Dev-QA Collaboration
Developers, engineers, and QA testers can collaborate seamlessly by remotely connecting to a real devices. This fosters teamwork and ensures everyone has access to the necessary devices, promoting efficient development and testing.
Deep Figma Integration for Enhanced UX
Only Kobiton allows developers to visually compare test execution results with Figma design, guaranteeing the best customer experience within your app.
Rapid Debugging Across Deployments
Only Kobiton empowers Dev and Product teams to swiftly identify and rectify defects directly from their development environments or IDEs on premises.
