Earlier this year, Apple bought the popular iOS app distribution tool TestFlight along with the parent company Burstly to bolster its suite of tools for developers. To nobody’s surprise, TestFlight quickly terminated Android support in March. So what’s a multi-platform app creator to do? Enter Crashlytics’s new tool ‘Beta.’
Last year, Twitter acquired Crashlytics, a mobile crash reporting solution, and folded the features into the main Twitter product. Well this year, the Crashlytics team has continued its innovation by creating a “fun” tester experience that is fully integrated with Crashlytics crash reporting and works for teams on both iOS and Android.
Some really sexy features also exist such as the ability to view where each tester is in the lifecycle, the ability to see the code drawing the most issues and overall tester activity.
It’s also streamlined; as the above GIF shows, it makes it easy to upload a build and with bulk email invitations from csvs, the distribution is also a breeze.
