DeviceAnywhere Free is now live!
By Product Management | January 7, 2013
We’re bringing in the New Year with a bang by introducing DeviceAnywhere Free and marking a significant change to the mobile web testing marketplace. As the name implies, DeviceAnywhere Free requires no commitment on the part of the user and is a great way to learn about remote, real-device testing. Simply register and log in to our newly designed portal, and you’ll be able to see how your websites appear on real mobile devices.
With the rapid proliferation of smartphones and tablets, mobile is hot. Yet mobile testing is still a relatively new and growing market. DeviceAnywhere Free will help the testing market catch up, giving users unlimited access to 10-minute website spot checking sessions. During a session, check out real, live mobile devices from the library and interact remotely with them to see exactly how website content looks and acts across a range of different mobile devices.
Using the computer keyboard and mouse, a DeviceAnywhere Free lets you control the device, interacting with the touchscreen, device keyboard, and other device hardware. DeviceAnywhere Free supports tap & swipe gestures and invoking the accelerometer will put a device in landscape mode. There are also several utilities available to enhance productivity.
Better than the alternatives?
Today many developers, testers, and content owners depend on owned, real devices to access their website. This either means purchasing and maintaining a library or borrowing devices from friends and coworkers, or alternatively, simply not testing across as many devices for adequate test coverage. In a much more convenient environment, DeviceAnywhere Free provides access to some of the most popular smartphones on the market including the iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S3, the Nokia Lumia, and more. Quickly conduct spot checking on all of the major operating systems (iOS, Android, BlackBerry and Windows) and save screenshots to share with co-workers.
Three most important words
They say that in the restaurant business the three most important words are 1) Location 2) Location 3) Location. However when location is no longer important because the cloud lets you test from anywhere at any time, perhaps the words most important to you will be 1) Free 2) Free 3) Free.
