Why use managed USB hubs for mobile app and device testing?

In a recent mobile app testing survey, 84 percent of QA organisations said they need to test on real devices in order to be successful.

There are two simple why you should consider using our managed hubs for app and mobile device testing.

1. App performance

You can monitor the performance of the device battery charge/discharge when your Apps and software are running on the device. This enables testing to focus on the power consumption of Apps, something that can be critical to the App’s commercial success.

2. Manual and automated testing on real devices.
Do more testing in-house on real devices.

Manual testing on a number of devices locally enable you to explore how the app behaves on the device, how well the app conforms to the platform’s guidelines (Apple, Microsoft, and Google all have specific guidelines for apps on their platforms) and other areas such as notifications, whether data is properly saved locally and what happens in device power-saving mode.

For automated testing you can use Appium or Selenium in combination with our hubs.

“Without a professional USB hub - I reckon we would need at least another two engineers, just to deal with the USB connectivity issues we used to have to manage."
