A while ago, I wrote a complete review of @TestFlightApp, a web service allowing iOS developers to help them distribute adhoc builds of their apps for testing purposes (TestFlightApp - a complete review). That's kind of incomplete description of this wonderfully designed web service.
Today, I want to highlight a few upcoming features on TestFlightApp:
- see who is really testing your apps, how much effort they put into;
- see application usage patterns with checkpoints;
- ask for feedback the users running your application, directly from the device;
- get easy access to application's crash logs, complete with symbolication.
|You can ask for feedback with Yes or No answers|
|Free form feedback can also be submitted|
As developers, we all know how tricky it is to get user's crash logs. But what if the whole process was automated from start to finish? This is exactly what the SDK does for you. If your application crashes while being tester, open the next restart, the integrated TestFlightApp SDK will try to recover the logs and send them to the web service. Completely symbolicated.
|XCode Project Settings required for crash reporting|
All in all, I really like how TestFlightApp is evolving. If you are not already registered with them, you should take the time to open an account (free!) and see for yourself.
