Access Device Cloud Devices with deviceBridge™
deviceBridge from Mobile Labs gives mobile app and web developers as well as Appium app/web testers all the benefits of a secure, high-performance, high-availability mobile device cloud. deviceBridge breaks the bonds and limitations of only having one or a few mobile devices attached to a workstation by USB cable, and instead creates a “virtual” USB cable that connects real mobile devices in the deviceConnect™ mobile device cloud to:
Your World Just Opened Up!
With deviceBridge, whole new classes of users can have their pick of any device in the deviceConnect cloud. Instead of being limited to only the devices he or she physically possesses, an engineer can choose from dozens of devices. Those that remain attached to the engineer’s workstation can still be used; an engineer can choose any from any of the deviceBridge/deviceConnect devices that are added to the local inventory.
Code and Test Faster and Better
Developer productivity is greatly enhanced because checkout and debugging can be quickly performed on a much wider variety of devices – and the instant device access provided by deviceConnect reduces or eliminates waits. Because more types of real devices are readily available, developers are no longer limited by the few devices they have in hand and can find more device incompatibilities earlier in the process (instead of relying on QA or users). Other benefits of deviceConnect with deviceBridge include:
Drop the Simulators and Cut the Cord
Once the virtual connection is made, using a deviceConnect real mobile device through deviceBridge is functionally the same as using a device physically attached to the engineer’s workstation. For example, Apple’s Xcode shows the device as attached to the user’s machine and available for development and testing, even though the device is being accessed remotely.
deviceBridge also eliminates the need to account for the host of limitations and incompatibilities of mobile device simulators since, with deviceConnect, real mobile devices are more readily available.
deviceConnect significantly diminishes the need to manually share devices. Collaboration among teams is facilitated through screen sharing, making it possible for engineers in multiple geographies to see what is happening with an app or a device in real time. Using Xcode or Android Studio, developers can connect to cloud-based devices to run interactive debug sessions or to view crash logs that ultimately assist in problem determination.
If you’re a mobile app developer, mobile web developer, or automation engineer, and are using tools like Xcode, Android Studio, or some open-source automation framework that doesn’t offer device cloud benefits, cut the cord with deviceBridge and deviceConnect! With these two solutions, you will quickly have all the benefits of a secure, high-availability device cloud right at your fingers.
Why Mobile Labs?
Only Mobile Labs’ deviceConnect has the flexibility to test mobile websites manually or with automation on securely-managed, remotely-accessible, real mobile devices. Seamless interaction between deviceConnect’s automation engine, Mobile Labs’ Trust™, and HP’s UFT and ALM means UFT-skilled engineers can be up and testing mobile websites in a matter of minutes. Easy to use, deviceConnect’s secure mobile device access management capabilities boost mobile engineer productivity and mobile web quality.
