I currently carry out all mobile testing on real devices, but instead of shelling out to upgrade the devices I am wondering whether it would make sense to step away from hardware and move onto a cloud-based solution.
Before I do that, I need answers to the following questions:
- A lot of the cloud services I’ve looked into purport to use ‘real’ devices as opposed to emulation/simulation. Exactly how does this work, and can we really say that this is 100% true to the real thing?
- Do any of these services allow testing of internal websites/sites locked down to IP addresses? I would need this in order to run against our internet QA environment
- If the above points are positive then do you have any suggestions for the based cloud-based solutions? I only need to test websites, not apps
Thanks in advance
