Windows 10 Mobile App Testing
Windows 10 Mobile only makes up a small fraction of the mobile device market. However, the former Windows Phone continues to hang on. Microsoft is taking a forward-looking approach to the convergence of PC and phone technology for users on the go, so Windows for mobile is expected to grow considerably. Within the Applause testing community, we have access to every device, release and carrier combination that you need to feel confident your Windows apps will work well in the real world.
What We Offer
Windows 10 Mobile Unified Platform
Microsoft’s intention is to soon have its Windows 10 unified platform running on all devices, potentially shifting the conversation in the rapidly-changing mobile marketplace. With popular thinking shifting from “desktop first” to “mobile first,” Windows 10 Mobile is built to support system-on-chips lines for major device manufacturers.
Universal Apps on a Universal System
Live Tiles provides useful information at a glance for Windows 10 Mobile users, and Microsoft has developed layers to allow Android and iOS apps to work on its devices as well as native apps. As for Windows apps, the Windows 10 universal App System offers built-in features, like notification sync between devices and synced photo library experiences that allows seamless experiences between PC and mobile devices. For developers, this means a lot of new testing across device makers, models, carriers and locations.
Windows 10 Mobile App Testing
Applause gives Windows 10 Mobile developers an easy way to test your apps on a range of devices around the world – including in emerging markets. With a global community of professional testers, Applause has access to the broadest range of devices and the latest operating system versions.
Applause enables Windows 10 Mobile developers to test on any device, anywhere in the world – and for substantially less than traditional outsourcing firms in terms of time, effort and cost.
Lab environments are places of perfect connectivity, limited devices and up-to-date operating systems. Sadly, that’s not the world your app is going to encounter outside the walls of your test lab.
Applause’s in-the-wild testing ensures your Windows 10 app works well in real world situations:
On Real Devices
Emulators and simulators simply don’t cut it. Fingers on touchscreens are much different than mouse clicks, and real devices aren’t clean, well-maintained systems. But to house all the devices you would need for testing, you would need unlimited space and an astronomical budget.
On a Range of Devices
The number of mobile devices grows every day, bringing with it a range of screen sizes, resolutions, processing power and more.Learn More
Connectivity changes with network and location, but you can’t mimic those fluctuating conditions in a lab.
Not everyone regularly updates their mobile operating system. How does your app behave on older OS versions?
"Applause has testers that are available 24/7, 365 days a year. Better yet, they’re available on practically no notice at all, which allows us to essentially compress 50 days of testing into a 24-hour period."
