IQT selects AppThwack’s enterprise-grade app testing platform to validate apps on real devices

September 17, 2013

AppThwack, a leader in cloud-based app testing, announced it has entered into a strategic partnership and technology development agreement with In-Q-Tel (IQT). IQT is an independent strategic investment firm that identifies innovative technology solutions to support the missions of the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC). The investment enables further development of AppThwack’s enterprise-grade app testing platform, and helps IC customers thoroughly and quickly test app compatibility, functionality, and performance before deployment of an app.

“Today’s apps must function and perform across myriad devices, OS versions, network configurations, and other variables, and we see more and more companies turning to automation to help them navigate this difficult landscape,” said AppThwack co-founder Trent Peterson. “We’re excited to work with IQT in enhancing our app testing platform and extending this capability to the U.S. Intelligence Community.”

AppThwack provides cloud-based access to real, physical device labs for automated Android and iOS app testing through its website, tool integrations, and API. Test reports are generated in minutes and provide high-level trends, low-level logs, high-resolution screenshots, and detailed performance profiles. AppThwack enables companies to focus their resources on development and mission-critical activities by removing the complexities of maintaining device labs, building automation infrastructure, and analyzing scores of disparate data.

“Due to the wide adoption of apps, both for external and internal use, along with increasingly popular internal app markets and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies, there’s a great need to test and vet apps within the enterprise,”  says Jay Emmanuel, Senior Vice President of IQT’s Mobility practice. “AppThwack’s technology provides an excellent user interface and easy to read reports, making it easier to quickly identify problems before deploying mobile applications. We’re excited to help extend this capability to our Intelligence Community partners.”
