Frequently Asked Questions

What is Kobiton’s Mobile Device Cloud?

Kobiton’s Mobile Device Cloud allows access to a range of real devices over the cloud for app testing.

A real device cloud provides remote access to physical mobile devices for testing applications across various platforms and configurations​​.

The terms “mobile device cloud” and “mobile device farm” are often used interchangeably, but they can have distinct meanings in the context of mobile application testing.

A mobile device cloud provides remote access to a diverse range of real mobile devices hosted over the internet. It allows users to test mobile applications on different hardware, operating systems, and configurations without needing physical access to the devices.

A mobile device farm refers to a collection or ‘farm’ of mobile devices physically located in one place, often within an organization, for the purpose of testing mobile applications.

A mobile device farm is a collection of mobile devices available for testing applications in different environments.

Setting up a device farm involves selecting a range of devices based on market coverage and configuring them for secure, organized access​​.

Setting up a device cloud involves several steps to ensure that you have a scalable, accessible, and efficient testing environment. In  general here is a guide on how to set up a mobile device cloud.

Define Your Testing Requirements
Identify the types of devices, operating systems, and device configurations (like different screen sizes, hardware specifications) that are relevant for your application.Determine the scale of the device cloud based on the variety of devices and the expected volume of testing.

Choose a Device Cloud Provider
Research and select a mobile device cloud provider that suits your needs. Providers like Kobiton, Sauce Labs, or BrowserStack offer various features and device selections.Consider factors like the range of devices available, integration capabilities with your existing tools, pricing, and support services.

Create an account with your chosen provider
Configure team access, setting up user roles and permissions as needed for different team members.

Integrate with Development and Testing Tools
Integrate the device cloud with your development and testing tools, such as CI/CD pipelines, version control systems, and test automation frameworks.Ensure that the device cloud can be accessed seamlessly from your existing workflow.

Create and Configure Test Environments
Set up various test environments within the device cloud as per your requirements. This may include different combinations of devices and OS versions.Configure network settings, install necessary applications or tools, and set up any specific testing parameters.

Develop and Deploy Test Scripts
Write test scripts for automated testing, if applicable.Deploy these scripts to the device cloud and configure them to run on selected devices.

Conduct Manual and Automated Testing
Begin testing your application both manually and automatically.Utilize the features of the device cloud like screen recording, logging, and debugging tools.

Monitor and Optimize:Regularly monitor the performance of your tests and the usage of the device cloud. Optimize the selection of devices and test scripts based on test results and analytics.

Maintain Security and Compliance
Ensure that data security and privacy measures are in place, especially if testing applications with sensitive data.Stay compliant with relevant regulations and standards.

Stay Updated
Keep the device cloud updated with the latest devices and OS versions to ensure your application is tested on current platforms.

Manual testing in a mobile device cloud can be straightforward, allowing testers to interact with real devices remotely. However automated testing is more efficient and with Kobiton often requires no scripts.

It’s important to select a reputable mobile device cloud to ensure data privacy and security, preventing unauthorized access to your data. Make sure your mobile device cloud provider provides  robust encryption, strict access controls, and clear data retention policies.  For more information on Kobiton’s security, privacy, and compliance, visit the Kobiton Trust Center.
