One of the great advantages of TestFairy is the ease of use for you and your testers.

Once you uploaded your app and invited your testers, they can download the app in one click. If you seletced Auto Update in the "Build Settings" page, the testers won’t even have to worry about updating it any more, as newer versions will be automatically updated.

Your users do not need to do anything in order to start the video recording. Once they start using the app, video recording and data collection will start automatically. Sending back the application data is as seamless as the installation - your testers just use the application regularly, and TestFairy takes care of the rest. All you need to do as a developer is sit back, relax and watch the data appear on your TestFairy dashboard, showing your testers' behaviour in real time.

To analyze your test sessions, choose the app from the Apps menu on the top of the page and select a version from the presented chart.

Session Overview

The Session Overview page shows you a full, comprehensive and synchronized view of all the relevant information collected in a single session:

  • Video recordings

  • Application logs
