Over the last year, Microsoft partnered with Perfecto Mobile to deliver mobile testing extensions to Visual Studio, Team Foundation Server, and Visual Studio Online based on Perfecto Mobile’s MobileCloud platform. Today, the Redmond-based company announced that it's expanding this partnership, and will have new offers for MSDN subscribers. It's not just the MSDN subscribers, it will also add new features for users of Perfecto Mobile and Visual Studio.
Perfecto Mobile offers developers cloud-based solutions with thousands of physical devices running on different mobile platforms. Perfecto Mobile’s Visual Studio templates offers developers automated testing to thousands of devices from their existing Team Foundation Server installations or Visual Studio Online accounts.
"With Perfecto Mobile’s Visual Studio templates, development teams can easily extend product builds and manual and automated testing to thousands of devices from their existing Team Foundation Server installations or Visual Studio Online accounts. Any development team can use TFS to manage Windows 8, Android and iOS versions of their application, while testing each version on the relevant set of real devices in the MobileCloud. When test failures occur, Perfecto Mobile automatically generates TFS work items which include screenshots and a full video of the tests that were run making it easy for developers to find and fix the issue," says Microsoft.
MSDN subscribers can also get automated testing -- public and private -- at discounted prices. Users can get up to a 40 percent discount on public cloud manual testing, up to 30 percent on public cloud automated testing and last but not the least, private cloud automated testing are available at 20 percent discount.
"Cloud-based mobile device testing is a key component of mobile-first, cloud-first development. With Visual Studio, Team Foundation Server and Perfecto Mobile, developers have access to highly integrated, familiar, and effective mobile device testing features," Microsoft adds.
In addition, Perfecto Mobile will also hit the Azure Store with a 20 percent discount until the end of the year.
