Test your app on over 2,000 devices.

Run your app on our huge (and growing) collection of real devices from around the world. Select devices based on form factor, manufacturer, operating system, or even popularity in your target market. We’re adding over 100 devices every month, and if there’s a specific device you need, we’re taking requests.

Automate using Ruby or C#

Automate your app using real tools & languages.

We created a framework called Calabash that can automate and test any iOS or Android app, native or hybrid, from the UI level down. Xamarin provides both the automation framework and the device cloud, so we can offer perfect integration, and continuous improvements to Calabash in response to customer needs. Xamarin Test Cloud also now supports the Appium framework.

“Xamarin's Calabash framework, and their Test Cloud, plays a fundamental role in our continued effort to maintain the highest possible quality of our products and also securing a short time-to-market. Our test setup takes care of most of the tedious work doing regression tests and gives our team quick feedback, while helping us delivering new features at a fast predictive speed. Whenever we have encountered problems the Xamarin service and support has been excellent.”
