Uploading an Application

When you create a project, you provide information about either the website or application you want to test, and the device settings you want to use in your tests. Once you've created a project you can run manual or automated tests using the project information, and also create versions of the project to reflect changes in the application or website through your development process. 

  1. Log into your account. 
  2. Select whether you want to create an Android/iOS application project, a mobile website test project or apps that are distributed with for example App Center. More information about the App Center Integration can be found here.

  3. For an application project, browse to the file containing your application, and upload it. 

    For an example application (iOS & Android), download it from this page

  5. Edit the Device Settings as needed, click Save.
