Mobile-focused organizations have the highest quality requirements to deliver a spot-on mobile experience to their users.

Kobiton’s two new Verified Steps on Bitrise help you tackle these challenges by offering a testing solution that works at scale, in a cost-effective and timely manner.

About the Step

Kobiton is a mobile experience platform making your mobile apps work better everywhere: it lets you run your tests on a flexible and high-performing real device cloud, and based on your preferences and security requirements, they offer an on-premise solution too. Let’s see what you can achieve by implementing their Steps in your Bitrise Workflow!

1. Improve customer experience

With Kobiton’s Visual testing and Performance testing features, you can start releasing pixel perfect apps to avoid app abandonment and improve your app store ratings.

2. Improve release efficiency

Speeding up your time-to-market and shortening the QA cycle are essential to stay on top of your game. Issues which would have taken weeks to resolve/test can be corrected quickly, saving you valuable hours. With Kobiton’s device management and tracking, the team can easily see which devices are available, updated, and ready to use. Check out how Real device testing, Device Management, Scriptless automation, and Functional testing work on their platform.

A leading multinational athletic apparel and accessories corporation reduced their mobile delivery time by 92% since they are using Kobiton.

3. Increase revenue

Driving improved revenue and conversions on our mobile channel can be difficult at first, but it can greatly impact the company’s outlook once we succeed. By improving the customer experience and your release efficiency, there’s a great chance this channel will have a significant, or even major role in generating your revenue. With Kobiton, you can avoid any crashes and defects, and get those 5-star app store ratings.

Kobiton’s cloud devices are hosted in highly secure data centers that are SOC2, SOC3 and HIPPA compliant. By offering a private cloud infrastructure, they comply with rigorous data security restrictions.

How it works

These are the two newest additions in our Step Library:

  • Kobiton App Upload: this Step uploads your .apk or .ipa file to Kobiton’s App Repository: this way you can start testing the latest version of your app.
  • Kobiton Execute Test: this Step kicks off the execution of the automated test script on Kobiton — this testing process happens synchronously when you are building your app.

By combining Bitrise and Kobiton, you can run tests the way you like. By using the Upload Step alone, you can run your test asynchronously at a preferred time. If you decide to run your tests during build time, just add the Execute Test Step to your Workflow alongside the first Step.
