XCTest and OCUnit on real devices in the cloud

Yesterday, I read the latest blog post from AppThwack, that they now support real iOS devices on their test cloud. Developers and testers are now able to run their automated XCTest or OCUnit test suites against the provided cloud with more than 46 iOS devices, from iPhone to iPad.

The big advantage of having the OCUnit support in the AppThwack cloud, is that a number of popular iOS testing frameworks are built on top of OCUnit. There are tools like KIF (Keep It Functional), Kiwi, Spectra or OCMock. If you already have an automated test suite with one of those tools, you can easily execute them now against the cloud. All you have to do is upload your bundle either with the provided UI or API.

See the short AppThwack tutorial, on how to upload and test your project against the cloud:

At the end of the test run, a really nice report is generated. A sample report can be found here.

If you want to try the cloud testing service, just register and get 100 free device minutes for testing.

What kind of cloud testing services are you using?

Have a nice friday and weekend.
